A senior Border Security Force (BSF) official said, “The work to set up hi-tech surveillance system along the 2000-km sensitive stretch on the international border with Pakistan and Bangladesh is likely to be competed in the next six to seven years. 

“The Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System (CIBMS) will be able to spot intruders with the use of advanced technology, if they try to enter the Indian Territory,” said BSF's Additional Director General AK Sharma. 

CIBMS is an integration of a number of new gadgets and technologies. It ensures electronic surveillance of borders. Mr. Sharma also said, “Under the CIBMS project, the work to install modern equipment in parts of India-Pakistan border in Jammu and some other areas has been completed, while it is in progress in the border areas adjoining Bangladesh.” 

He further said, "The work on CIBMS project is going on continuously. Under this, some of the world's best technologies are being used to keep a watch on the country's borders."  

"The CIBMS project can take 6-7 years to complete. Under this project, a very strong technical mechanism is being put in place. This system will spot intruders if they try to enter our borders," said Mr. Sharma.  

In the beginning, the project is being implemented on 2,000 km-long sensitive stretch along the border with Pakistan and Bangladesh. 

However, the official said the project has been implemented on a priority basis in sensitive areas where conventional fences cannot be used in terrains such as rivers, mountains and trenches.
