Smart fence along Pak, Bangla by late 2017: BSF

584027_thumpSharma said the force, after getting sanctions from the Union Home Ministry, is working to implement a Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS) where the security of these two sensitive and difficult terrain borders will shift from the regular troops patrolling system to a quick reaction team pattern where guards strike once they notice a blip of infiltration on their surveillance radars.

“We are taking some concerted efforts to modernise our border fence. Twenty big companies are currently undertaking a technical evaluation for the CIBMS. It is expected that it would be on ground by the second half of next year.

“In this regard few pilot projects are already on…two in Jammu and one each in Punjab and Gujarat where we have marshy areas. One project will be done in Assam’s Dhubri,” the Director General said.

He said the effort of the country’s largest border guarding force, with about 2.5 lakh personnel in its ranks, is “to modernise itself” as humans have inherent weaknesses and equipments and gadgets act as force multipliers.
