What is Y category security?
11 personnel are detained for the security of the individual. It also includes 1 or 2 Commandos and police personnel. Out of these, five personnel (one commander, four constables) are stationed at the residence of the protectee while three armed PSOs are deployed with the protectee on a rotation basis in three shifts.
Who is liable to get it?
Agencies mostly provide a subjective measure of the Threat to life or injury to a person from terrorists or any other group, based on information generated from their sources. The data can include intercepts of phone conversations, human intelligence, or a credible analysis of a genuine threat. Some individuals, by the positions they hold in government, are automatically entitled to have a security cover. They include the Prime Minister and his immediate family. The Home Minister and officials such as the National Security Advisor too, generally get security cover because of the positions they occupy.
Who decides the level of protection that is to be given to an individual?
The level of security needed by any individual is decided by the Ministry of Home Affairs, based on inputs received from intelligence agencies which include the Intelligence Bureau (IB) and Research and Analysis.
