Pranab to deliver IB Centenary Endowment Lecture

New Delhi, Dec 18 : Indian President Pranab Mukherjee will deliver the 26th Intelligence Bureau (IB) Centenary Endowment Lecture, 2013 at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi on Thursday.

The IB Centenary Endowment Lecture provides to a wide cross-section of IB personnel, an opportunity to hear intellectuals, leaders and thinkers on important contemporary issues.

The Intelligence Bureau completed 100 years of its existence in 1987 and celebrated its Centenary Year in 1988.

The yearlong celebrations were marked by seminars, workshops and lectures on national security issues in different parts of the country in which IB personnel interacted with public leaders, administrators, intellectuals and officers of other security agencies.

After the first Centenary Endowment Lecture by Shankar Dayal Sharma, the then Vice-President of India on Dec 22, 1988 on the subject "The Dynamics of Security Environment", a Centenary Endowment Lecture is organized in December every year.

So far, 25 such Lectures have been delivered by eminent speakers on a wide range of issues related to India's security and the development of Indian polity.
