NIA comes into effect

The National Investigating Agency (NIA) has come into force from today - January 1, 2009. The NIA 2008 bill, which was passed by the Parliament, became a law, after President Pratibha Patil gave her assent to it.
The National Investigating Agency will be headed by a Director-General level officer. He will be appointed in a few days. The cases of NIA would be taken by a committee of two judges. At least 20 counter-insurgency and anti-terrorism schools will be set up in the country.
