About Webinar on India at 75

India is completing 75 years of Independence on 15th August 2022. The Indian journey post-Independence has been upwards and upwards, and Indians have attained significant might and glory at all spheres and forums of social, economic, political, cultural, technological and legal dimensions. While commemorating 75 years of Independence, it is indispensable to laud the efforts of the police force and the armed forces- the Indian Navy, Indian Army and Indian Airforce who work tirelessly and ceaselessly in order to ensure safety and security in the nation.

The police and the armed forces play a pivotal role in the development of India, and it thus becomes very important to talk about the role of the police and armed forces in the proliferation and administration of criminal justice in India, while emphasizing on essential topics such as surveillance, investigation, intelligence, arrests, and the justice delivery system. The Indian Navy has countless achievements to its roster, to name a few- Operation Sankalp, Operation Samudra Setu, Mission SAGAR and SAGAR-II, and performed brilliant activities with navies of foreign countries, such as- SLINEX 2020, INDRA NAVY 2020, JIMEX 2020, etc.

Today, as war and conflict surround major countries of the world, the Indian Armed Forces, whose training, expertise and experience is impeccable in their niche areas, ensure that the Indian fronts are safeguarded against any aggressors and stories of their valor, hard-work, determination and integrity, continue to inspire all Indian nationals. Thus, the Webinar themed “India @75: Revisiting National Security And Governance”, will talk about their contribution in detail, highlighting their role in India post-independence.
