As per the Seventh Schedule of the Constitution of India, subjects of ‘Police’ and ‘Public Order’ are with State Governments. The cases under UAPA are mainly investigated by state police. The central agencies have been organizing capacity building program for State Police Forces on various aspects of investigation of terror related cases.

The National Investigation Agency (NIA) also investigates some of the UAPA cases which are assigned to it. 49 NIA special courts have been setup across the country for the speedy trial of terror related cases. Also, after the 2019 amendment in the NIA Act, 2008 the appointment of Judges of NIA Special Courts is now made by designation as against hitherto practice of appointment by name to ensure speedy trial of UAPA cases.
