The Intelligence Bureau (IB) 23.11.2013
The Intelligence Bureau (IB) is India’s internal Intelligence agency and reputedly the world’s oldest intelligence agency. It was recast as the Central Intelligence Bureau in 1947 under the Ministry of Home Affairs . The reason for the perception may be because, in 1885, Major General Sir Charles was appointed Genera
l and head of the Intelligence Department for the British Indian Army at Simla . The objective then was to Russian troop in Afghanistan ,fearing a Russian invasion of British India through the North-West during the late 19th century.
In 1909, the Indian Political Intelligence Office was established in England in response to the development of Indian revolutionary activities , which came to be called the Indian Political Intelligence (IPI) from 1921.
