In attempts to prevent terrorists and immigrants from invading the Indian borders, the government has floodlit 647 kilometres of the borders with Pakistan and Bangladesh. The floodlighting of the 647-km-long stretches of the two international borders was completed in last one year, a Home Ministry official said.

This initiative will help the border guarding forces to keep a strict eye on the concerned areas and check attempts of illegal immigration. Notably, projects worth Rs 5,188 crore were sanctioned by the central government in the last three years of which Rs 2,138 crore has been released for the Indo-Bangladesh and Indo-Pak border projects. This includes the expenses to maintain a fence across 200 KM area, constructing 430-km-long border roads, 110 composite border outposts and floodlighting the 647-km-long areas.

“A major push has been given by the government to border infrastructure and developmental works,” the official said.

Significantly, the total length of the Indo-Pak border is 3,323 km, including the Line of Control and the Actual Ground Position Line, while the Indo-Bangladesh border is 4,096 km long. The India-China border is 3,488 km long. Considering the India-China border, 8 roads out of 27 border roads was completed during 2014-16, while another nine roads are due to be completed by the end of the year.
