Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday inaugurated two pilot projects of smart fencing along the Indo-Pak International Border in Jammu.
Speaking on the occasion, Rajnath Singh said that government has taken a number of initiatives to make the borders of the country more secure. He said that the Centre has been making maximum use of technology to make the security system at the borders stronger and effective. The Minister said that smart fencing at the borders is a technological solution devised to address the security issues in the Border States and the two projects in five kilometers areas each have been installed along the Indo-Pak International Border in Jammu on a pilot basis, the spokesman in a statement said.
He said that with this smart fencing, the number of casualties of the army on borders would get minimized and the stress level among them would also reduce to a large extent.
The Union Home Minister further added that with the digital smart fencing, the borders would become absolutely safe since it would virtually make it impossible for the militants to breach it and infiltrate across the borders.
