Two days strong deliberations among the stake holders highlighted the following areas of concern the government could consider while forming policies: -
- More strong consideration of MAKE IN INDIA security products compared to current adoption of imported equipment with a view probably the quality and application would be more result oriented of our own products.
- A Government forum to share security application requirement with manufacturers and System Integrators directly. Departments such as BPRD and Police Modernization can play a leading role.
- Solutions for Counter Insurgency lack specific local area environment. Costly equipment is often found to fail in the exact hour of need. Case study of such failures to be discussed by paramilitary authorities with the industry. It will help to design and manufacture suitable solutions with least failure rates.
- A working committee be formed for National Police University with representation from the industry in drafting the curriculum based on actual requirement of the end user. It will help to bring security courses to meet actual requirements of the public and private organizations. This will not only reduce the gap in meeting large numbers of good but will bring better educated and trained Security personnel. This will also create Employment opportunities in the industry.
- Discourage Foreign Direct Investment in Security services sector.
- Government to help in security product registration in right categories of the GeM – Government Electronic Marketing Portal. To add new categories for various security products which currently can’t be categorized into the present listing.
- Government to help in effective implantation of the UAV – Drone policy in coordination with the industry.
- A very clear and strong policy defining security rules to be implemented by Educational institute similar to Fire authority’s regulations. It should be mandatory to adopt them by every institute irrespective it is a normal school, College or University. Government schools to be aided for implementing these rules as basic safety requirements. Implementation should have clear time lines.
- Disaster management has large requirements that are not well known to the solution and equipment providers. Government should consider having a close interaction exclusive to this sector.
- Case study of the Smart City concepts that have been implemented by the government be shared with the industry highlighting the areas of successful implementation and utility.

DBSS CELEBRATING STAFF BIRTHDAY
FACIAL RECOGNITION SYSTEM AT KUMBH MELA, HARIDWAR, INDIA.
Rivers have always held a special place in Hindu mythology, as these are considered to be the carriers of life and
fertility. Hence the rivers always remain a part of almost all major festivals in India. One of the festivals which are
worth mentioning in this context is Kumbh Mela. This fair is perhaps the largest religious gathering in any religion
around the world. A vast number of people gather at different places and perform different rituals on this day by the
banks of different rivers. The name Kumbh Mela consists of two words, the literal meaning of the name of the festival
is, "Kumbh" which means a pitcher or a pot, the word Kumbh also signifies a Hindu sun sign, Aquarius. The word
Mela means a fair or a gathering.
This is a fair which is conducted at four different places of India on the banks of pious rivers. The places where the
mela is conducted are Haridwar, on the banks of river Ganges; Ujjain by the river Shipra; Nasik by the river Godawari
and at Allahabad by the confluence of the rivers Ganges, Yamuna and Saraswati. During the festival the banks of
these rivers become a large bathing ground for the rich, the poor, the sadhus and the women alike. For each place the
Kumbh Mela repeats every 12 years, but in actuality there are four different Kumbh Melas which take place at different
sites. For e.g. if the Kumbh Mela is taking place in Prayag in the year 2011 then the next Kumbh Mela will take place
Though all the Kumbh Melas enjoy almost similar quantity of devotees but the name of Haridwar comes at the top of
all Indian pilgrimages. Hence the Kumbh Mela of Haridwar enjoys exceptional media coverage and Tourist traffic. The
place is termed as the gateway to heaven in Hindu mythological scriptures. The Myth behind the celebration of Kumbh
Mela goes like this, after the Deva-Asura war, which went on for quite some time, both the involved parties came to a
conclusion that they instead of fighting should come together and churn the milky ocean to obtain the Elixir. The sea
was churned and elixir was obtained but it was not meant for the Asura or the demons hence the god who appeared
from the sea with the Kumbh or the pitcher of elixir ran from the chasing Asuras. In this chase a few drops fell on earth
and now at these four places the Kumbh Mela is conducted.
All this importance makes the event quite vulnerable to crime and terror. The state police every year ensures
the smooth conduct by adequate policing supported with high tech CCTV surveillance equipment. This year the local
police has installed state of the art FACIAL RECOGNITION SOLUTION of HERTA make supplied by DB Secure
Solution private limited – A Partner to HERTA Inc. Spain. The System has been installed by M/S Power Electric
This adds another feather in the cap of DBSS already leading in the supply and installation of FACIL RECOGNITION
SYSTEM in India.
