STEEL MESH TO REPLACE BARBED WIRE FENCES ON BORDERS

Why in news?

The ‘rickety’ barbed wires along the Pakistan and Bangladesh borders are being replaced with meshed fence made of steel and coated with anti-rust paint, a senior government official said on 10th January 2019.

Details

  • India shares a 4,096.7 km long border with Bangladesh and 3,323 km with Pakistan.
  • The Border Security Force (BSF), deployed along the Pakistan and Bangladesh borders, has been tasked with ensuring that the fence is installed in a time-bound manner.
  • This will be a complete overhaul of the security system. The unique quality of the new fence is that it cannot be snipped and nobody can climb it.
  • There are many pockets along the border where the old barbed wires are so fragile that they can be destroyed with a mild push.
