Taking the first but crucial step towards ensuring zero-transgression borders with Bangladesh and Pakistan, Border Security Force (BSF) operationalised the first smart fence on a riverine stretch with Bangladesh in Assam. The smart fence reportedly comprises of automated surveillance technology and alarm detection systems but BSF has not disclosed its complete features due to security reasons. It is however expected to be a massive boon for monitoring situations in border areas. The riverine stretch where the first fence has been put up, for example, was previously patrolled by BSF speedboats. Due to its geographical features, no outpost could be erected here which often led to incidents like illegal migrations going unchecked. The introduction of the fence though will bring down such instances.
