History of National Security Day
The National Safety Council of India is a non-profit organization created to assist in the creation, implementation and maintenance of national level volunteer health, safety and development gestures. The day was born out of the inaugural Industrial Security Conference of the Ministry of Labor and Employment in India, which recognized the need for Security Councils at the national and state levels. They proposed the National Safety Council, which created the holiday as a way to encourage people to take safety precautions. In 1972, National Security Day was commemorated for the first time on the founding day of the National Security Council.
