The CIBMS is already being tested in certain border areas in Jammu before it is fully implemented, BSF officials said.
New Delhi: In the wake of increasing incidents of infiltration from Pakistan, security forces are now deploying an advanced fencing system from Israel along the Indo-Pak border, which would have a high-powered-CCTV-camera control room that would immediately alert the Quick Response Teams (QRTs) for instant preventive action.
The project, called the Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS), is being put in place by the BSF as part of Home Ministry’s ambitious plan to completely seal the Indo-Pak border in the coming years.
The BSF top brass is hopeful that the use of state-of-the-art technology in border areas will help check infiltration by terror groups to a large extent. The CIBMS is already being tested in certain border areas in Jammu before it is fully implemented, BSF officials said.
Once it is fully operational along the Indo-Pak border, it would be extended to areas along the border of Bengal with Bangladesh, which is also guarded by the BSF. The feed from CCTV cameras would be sent to a border out post, which would have a monitor installed and would be monitored.
