MISA is Maintenance of Internal Security Act. This was a law passed by the Indian parliament in 1973 giving the administration of the then PM Indira Gandhi and Indian law enforcement agencies super powers - indefinite "preventive" detention of individuals, search and seizure of property without warrants and wiretapping - in the quelling of civil and political disorder in India, as well as countering foreign-inspired sabotage, terrorism, subterfuge and threats to national security.
