Importance[edit]

Following the November 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks, the Indian government decided to establish four regional hubs of National Security Guard in Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai and Hyderabad. All the hubs were established in six months in June 2009. A permanent hub for the National Security Guard Regional was established at Nerkundram off the Grand Southern Trunk Road on 17 December 2011 at a cost of INR 540 million in an area spread across 69.28 acres.[3] The facility, sandwiched between 15 acres of forests and hillocks, is ideal for training commandos in rappelling (a controlled descent down a rock face using a rope).[4]
