On the occasion of the Research and Analysis Wing's 55th Raising Day, National Security Advisor Ajit Doval distributed 106 medals to officers and personnel
India’s external intelligence agency, the Research and Analysis Wing, today celebrated its 55th Raising Day with National Security Advisor Ajit Doval distributing 106 medals to officers and personnel of the spy agency for commendable performance and meritorious work.
Earlier, Secretary (R&AW) Samant Kumar Goel briefed the NSA on the performance of the agency and gave a broad overview to Doval on their priority areas in the neighbouring countries and and beyond.
The role of the R&AW is to assess threats posed to India from abroad and advise the government on options which could be exercised to counter the potential enemy.
NSA Doval also gave his assessment of the global security environment and the key result areas that needed to be focused by the spy agency. The R&AW reports to Prime Minister Narendra Modi through NSA Doval, who spearheads the national security planning and execution.
Some mischievous elements had spread false news that NSA Doval was facing health issues during PM Modi’s visit to Samarkand for the SCO summit. However, this was fake news.
