India plans five-layer ‘lock’ for Pakistan border
It is also the first time since Independence that
India will completely lock its western border.
NEW DELHI: The Centre has okayed a five-layer elaborate plan to completely stop infiltration on the 2,900-km western border with Pakistan. It entails round-the-clock surveillance through sophisticated technology which in effect will totally “lock” India’s western border to prevent Pathankot-like terror attacks and smuggling.

Thermal image and night-vision devices, battlefield surveillance radar, underground monitoring sensors to be placed
CCTV cameras, thermal image and night-vision devices, battlefield surveillance radar, underground monitoring sensors and laser barriers will be placed along the border to track all movement from the other side. The integrated set-up will ensure that if one device doesn’t work, another will alert the control room in case of a transgression, officials said. Laser barriers will cover 130 unfenced sections including riverine and mountain terrain from Jammu & Kashmir to Gujarat — often used by the infiltrators.

The government has drawn up a comprehensive five-layer plan to put a ‘complete stop’ to infiltration from across India’s 2,900-km western border with Pakistan.
