National Intelligence Grid (NATGRID) is  intelligence database designed to consolidate and make searchable data gathered by existing security and law enforcement agencies in order to prevent terrorist activity within the country.This will help in better coordination among different agencies .

NATGRID is a tool which security agencies will use to locate and obtain relevant information on terror suspects from data providing organizations like telecommunication companies, banks, and immigration department. It will allow them to query information pertaining to their investigative process and receive responses in a timely and secure manner. This will provide actionable intelligence thus helping  law enforcement and intelligence agencies  to reduce the number of terrorist incidents as they will be able to identify, capture and prosecute terrorists in a more efficient manner.

This will act as a deterrent and convince potential terrorists about the possibility of getting caught—thus cutting down the number of people expected to indulge in terrorist activities in the long run.
