GUWAHATI, March 4 - Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will inaugurate the �smart fencing� project christened as BOLD-QIT (Border Electronically Dominated QRT Interception Technique) set up under Comprehensive Integrated Border Management system on the riverine stretch of India-Bangladesh border in Dhubri district tomorrow.

The Border Security Force (BSF) is responsible for safeguarding of 4,096-km-long international border with Bangladesh. At various places, it is not possible to erect border fence due to the geographical barriers. The 61-km of border area in Dhubri where the Brahmaputra river enters into Bangladesh is consisting of vast char lands and innumerable river channels, thus making border guarding in this area a daunting task, especially during rainy season.

To overcome this problem, in the year 2017, the Ministry of Home Affairs decided to go for technological solution besides the physical presence of manpower of the BSF. In January 2018, the Information and Technology Wing of BSF undertook the project BOLD-QIT and completed it in record time with the technical support of various manufacturers and suppliers.

BOLD-QIT is the project to install technical systems under the Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS), which enables the BSF to equip the Indo-Bangladesh border with different kind of sensors in unfenced riverine areas of the Brahmaputra and its tributaries. Now, the entire span of the Brahmaputra has been covered with data network generated by microwave communication, OFC cables, DMR communication, day and night surveillance cameras and intrusion detection system.

These modern gadgets provide feeds to BSF control rooms on the border and enable BSF Quick Reaction Teams to thwart any possibility of illegal cross-border crossing and crimes.

Officials said the implementation of this project will not only help the BSF to curb all types of cross-border crimes but also provide respite to the troops from round-the-clock human surveillance.

Earlier, the Home Minister inaugurated two smart fencing pilot projects of five kilometres each on the India-Pakistan international border in Jammu in the month of September last year.
