About Intelligence Bureau Recruitment 2016.

The Intelligence Bureau (IB)  is India’s internal intelligence agency and it is the reputed and oldest intelligence agency in the world. In the year 1947, tt was recast as the Central Intelligence Bureau under the Ministry of Home Affairs. The reason for the perception may be because, in the year 1885, Major General Sir Charles MacGregor was appointed Quartermaster General and head of the Intelligence Department for the British Indian Army at Simla. Then the objective of the agency  was to monitor Russian troop deployments in Afghanistan, fearing a Russian invasion of British India through the North-West during the late 19th century.
