JOB POST: Multiple Legal Positions in National Investigation Agency [NIA]: Apply by Feb 27

NIA or National Investigation Agency is looking to hire for the job posts of Public Prosecutor, Senior Public Prosecutor, and Deputy Legal Advisor.

About NIA

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) is India’s counter-terrorism task force. The agency is empowered to deal with terror-related crimes across states without special permission from the states. The Agency came into existence with the enactment of the National Investigation Agency Act 2008 by the Parliament of India on 31 December 2008, which was passed after the deadly 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai. Such an attack clearly surfaced the failure of intelligence and ability to track such activities by existing agencies in India, hence the government of India realized the need for a specific body to deal with terror-related activities in India, thereby establishing the NIA. Headquartered in New Delhi, the NIA has branches in Hyderabad, Guwahati, Kochi, Lucknow, Mumbai, Kolkata, Raipur, and Jammu. It maintains the NIA Most Wanted list.

The founding Director-General of NIA was Radha Vinod Raju, and he served till 31 January 2010. He was succeeded by Sharad Chandra Sinha till March 2013. Navneet Rajan Wasan held full charge of DG till July 2013. In July 2013, Sharad Kumar was appointed as the Chief of National Investigation Agency. In 2017, Y. C. Modi was named as Chief of NIA in September.
