Rajnath Singh inaugurated India-Pakistan ‘smart fence’ pilot project in Jammu: Details, Significance, Highlights

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh inaugurated India’s first ‘smart fence’ pilot project on the India-Pakistan International Border in Ploura, Jammu & Kashmir on 17th September 2018. 

Rajnath Singh launched the project from the BSF Headquarters during his one-day visit to the Jammu and Kashmir state.

The smart fence pilot project is expected to be a massive boon for monitoring security situations in border areas. It is a technological solution devised to make the security system at the borders more strong and effective.

The smart fence system will virtually make it impossible for terrorists to infiltrate into the Indian side of the border. 

The smart fencing initiative has been taken up by the Border Security Force (BSF), as part of their comprehensive integrated border management system.

The 'smart fence' pilot project involves deploying laser-activated fences and technology-enabled barriers to plug vulnerable gaps along the frontiers. 

The smart fencing uses a number of devices for surveillance, communication and data storage. This innovative system provides for round-the-clock surveillance on the border, even in different weather conditions be it dust storm, fog or rain. 

The smart fencing also consists of automated surveillance technology and alarm detection systems. 

However, BSF has not disclosed its complete features due to security reasons.
