More about the Intelligence Bureau
The Intelligence Bureau (IB) is India’s domestic intelligence, internal security and counter-intelligence agency. The institution is reputed to be the oldest such organization in the world. According to its website, Arvind Kumar, who is a former IPS officer is the current director of the IB. Kumar took over from Rajiv Jain on June 26, 2019.
The History of Indian IB goes back to the 19th century. In 1885, Major General Charles MacGregor was appointed Quartermaster General for the British Indian Army at Simla. He thereby became responsible for its intelligence activities. The main concern of the time was to monitor Russian troop deployments in Afghanistan so as to avoid an invasion of British India from the northwest.
In 1909, the Indian Political Intelligence Office was established in England in response to the development of Indian revolutionary activities. The agency was run jointly by the India Office and the Government of India and maintaining close contact with Scotland Yard and MI5. After Indian independence in 1947, the IPI was renamed as the Intelligence Bureau under the Ministry of Home Affairs.
