Border management will improve: BSF chief

By R Dutta Choudhury

GUWAHATI, May 11 � Implementation of the land swap deal with Bangladesh will bring in considerable improvement in border management as the international boundary will be properly demarcated, said Director General of the Border Security Force DK Pathak. He also said that a number of new schemes have been launched by the border guarding force to check infiltration.

Talking to The Assam Tribune, Pathak said over the years, the border guarding force faced problems in border management in the areas where the international border was not properly demarcated. A fencing could not be constructed in the disputed areas, which also added to the problems of the personnel guarding the international border. He said the contiguity of the villages in the unfenced areas also affected border management as the infiltrators could take advantage of the situation to sneak into India from the neighbouring country.

The BSF DG pointed out that after implementation of the land swap deal, the exchange of the enclaves and adverse possessions would take place and the international border would be properly demarcated. Following proper demarcation of the international border, India would be able to construct fencing all along the international border with Bangladesh, which would be of great help to the BSF in improving border management, he added.

Pathak further pointed out that the disputed areas including the adverse possession areas had witnessed tension in the past, but now the situation would improve considerably and peace and tranquility can be maintained along the border.

The BSF DG admitted that the international riverine border remains an area of concern and the BSF has mooted several new schemes for improving vigil. He said a proposal for deployment of floating border outposts is under active consideration of the Government of India. �We are also considering using modern available technology for improving vigil along the riverine international border,� he added.
