The aim of the security policy is to define the role of the Security Section in the performance of its duties. The policy has been made keeping in mind that inconvenience to all should be minimized while maintaining reasonable control on access to the campus. Given their important public role, all members of Security Section will strictly maintain courtesy and a professional attitude in their dealings with the IIT Bombay community.
