Five Layer Plan to stop Infiltration

In order to curb the infiltration from Indo-Pakistan border, the Government has adopted multi-pronged approach which include construction of fencing, floodlighting, Border out Posts (BoPs), induction of latest surveillance equipments like Hand Held Thermal Imager (HHTI), Long Range Recce Observation System (LORROS), Nightvision Goggle/Devices, etc. Beside this Government of India has also decided to deploy technological solutions in the form of integration of Radars, Sensors, Cameras, Communication Networks and Command and Control Solutions in various difficult terrains where fencing could not be installed.

Government has sanctioned a pilot project for deployment of technological solutions on two patches (05 km each) in Area of Responsibility (AOR) of Jammu Frontier. Procurement process has been initiated and the Global Tender Enquiry along with Request for Proposal (RFP) has been issued. It has also been decided to launch pilot project of 30-40 kms (approx.) in Punjab Frontier on Indo-Pakistan border subsequently.
