The BSF's pilot projects under the Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS) would be inaugurated next month, DG K K Sharma said today.
According to Sharma, the force guarding the nearly 200 km long International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir was enhancing the use of technologies and new gadgets for effective surveillance.
We are bringing new technologies and using modern gadgets so that we can make our borders fully protected and secured with the use of technology, Sharma said here.
The one who will have better technology will dominate in the time to come, he said, adding that the Indo-Pak border will be sealed as technology will plug the gaps.
Sharma was in the city to pay homage to assistant commandant Jitendra Singh who laid down his life in Jammu and Kashmir on June 13 during unprovoked firing from Pakistan.
He said that the BSF, which was guarding the border with Pakistan in Jammu, Punjab, Rajasthan and Gujarat had contained cross-border infiltration.
Pushing militants into India and ceasefire violation is part of Pakistan's policy and whenever such things happen, we give a befitting reply, he told reporters at Singh's home in Mansarover area.
Asked if it was time to be deal with Pakistan more aggressively, Sharma said put the onus on the Centre.
Such decisions are taken by the government... The government would take suitable action at an appropriate time, he said.
During the visit, Sharma had a detailed discussion with Singh's family members and assured them of assistance.
