Two pilot projects covering about 71 Kms on Indo-Pakistan Border (10 Kms) and Indo-Bangladesh Border (61 Kms) of Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS) have been completed.
The Stage has been set now for taking up Stage-II and Stage-III covering about 1955 Kms of the border which cannot be physically fenced. The CIBMS project is expected to improve the capability of Border Security Force (BSF) in detecting and controlling the cross-border crimes like illegal infiltration, smuggling of contraband goods, human trafficking, cross border terrorism, etc.
India’s Home Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurated on Tuesday the project BOLD-QIT (Border Electronically Dominated QRT Interception Technique) under CIBMS on Indo-Bangladesh border in Dhubri district of Assam on Tuesady.
Rajnath Singh said earlier in the month of September 2018, two pilot projects of “smart” border fencing built under the CIBMS program in Jammu were launched. He added that over a period of time the complete border will be covered.
To address these problems, India’s Ministry of Home Affairs has decided to use technological solutions to enhance capabilities of BSF manpower deployed on the ground.
As part of CIBMS, these two projects were undertaken. Implementation of this project will help in integration of manpower, sensors, networks, intelligence and command and control solutions to improve situational awareness at different levels of hierarchy to facilitate prompt and informed decision-making and quick reaction to emerging situations.
