National Technical Research Organisation(NTRO)

-the  NTRO is an orphan in the ministerial system of administration — an intelligence agency that reports directly to the National Security Adviser, not to the Home Minister,
-It is a premier apex scientific organization under the National Security Advisor in the Prime Minister's Office, India.

 -Set up in 2004 with a mandate to bring state-of-the-art intelligence gathering and surveillance equipment to India, the NTRO was originally envisaged to be a ‘facilitator' rather than a producer, processor or consumer of intelligence.

-to deploy its capabilities as part of the operations that other agencies like the Intelligence Bureau and the Research and Analysis Wing were running.

-It also includes National Institute of Cryptology Research and Development (NICRD), which is first of its kind in Asia.
