Sitharaman to address DRI founding day on Dec 4

New Delhi, Dec 3 (UNI) Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman will inaugurate the 62th Founding Day of the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI) on December 4.
The two-day event is scheduled for 4th -5th December and Minister of State for Finance Anurag Singh Thakur will also be present on the occasion.
For more than six decades, the DRI with its presence across India and abroad has been carrying out its mandate of countering organised crime groups engaged in smuggling of contraband goods such as arms, ammunition and explosives, narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, gold and diamonds, counterfeit currency notes, wildlife items, hazardous & environmentally sensitive materials and antiques.
DRI also has expertise in unearthing commercial frauds, plugging leakage of Government’s tax revenue and countering trade based money laundering and black money. DRI has also been at the forefront in international Customs collaboration and has Customs Mutual Assistance Agreements with over 60 other countries, where thrust is on information exchange and learning from the best practices of other Customs administrations.
Accordingly, DRI takes the opportunity of its founding day to also organise Regional Customs Enforcement Meeting for effectively engaging with partner Customs organisations and International agencies like World Customs Organisation, INTERPOL for enforcement related issues.
This year, 21 Customs administrations covering the Asia-Pacific region along with international organisations such as Interpol, UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and Regional Intelligence Liaison Office – Asia Pacific (RILO AP) have been invited to the event. This meeting comes in the backdrop of the heightened trafficking of the huge quantities of heroin noticed in the Indian Ocean Region.
