The Directorate of Revenue Intelligence (DRI), as the premier intelligence and enforcement agency of the Government of India on anti-smuggling matters, has been consistently contributing towards guarding the economic frontiers of our country. During its 65 years of service to the nation, DRI has earned a formidable reputation among its peers, both within and outside India’s borders, as an agency with its invisible presence but visible and effective results in enforcement, while facing the challenges of Trans-national criminal syndicates, state-sponsored criminal gangs and non-state actors continuously targeting nation’s economy.

With close cooperation and coordination with national agencies, international organisations and foreign Customs Administrations, DRI has been effective in preventing and detecting cases of smuggling, commercial frauds and NDPS violations, and through these detections has also contributed in preserving the wildlife, flora and fauna, environment, cultural and natural heritage of our country. 

We in DRI remain committed to fulfilling our mandate with our contribution to the economic and national security, by international cooperation and close coordination with other agencies, while acknowledging the need to continuously innovate and acquire new techniques and capabilities to effectively deter the offenders. We welcome information and inputs from all towards securing the economic frontiers of the country.
