The marshy terrain in Kachchh poses challenges to building and maintaining a border fence. Fencing along the India-border in Kachchh has been approved for only 340 km of the border in Gujarat. It has not even been approved for about 200 km of the 512 km of the border in Gujarat.

The actual building of the fence has been completed only on 262 km. This means just half the entire length of the border with is fenced.

The Centre government has since the 1990s undertaken the task of constructing a border fence to prevent easy crossing into India. Fencing has been completed in sensitive regions like Punjab, which has seen two major attacks by terrorists from since 2015.

The International Border that runs from the Jammu region of Jammu and Kashmir to the watery wastelands of Kachchh does not see as much infiltration activity as compared to the Line of Control in Kashmir.
