UMHA sets March 2019 deadline for completion of Indo-Bangla border fencing, says officials

The Union Ministry of Home Affairs (UMHA) has set a deadline to complete the fencing of India-Bangladesh border by March 2019, reports The Sentinel on October 11.Disclosing this, a top unnamed Government official said on October 11 that the government has sanctioned the order to fence 3,326 Kilometers of the 4,096 km long India-Bangladesh border. “We have already completed 2,745.69 km of fencing… the remaining portion will be completed by March, 2019,” the official said. The left out area could not be fenced due to geographical location. “We have a long stretch of riverine border with Bangladesh and fencing those areas are not possible,” the official said, adding “Of course, we have floating border outposts to prevent possible influx.” The fence and other infrastructure along the international border are one of the measures to enhance frontier security. Several other measures are taken along the border and its unfenced stretches to curb cross-border crimes. Therefore, lack of complete fencing of borders does not mean it is made easy for infiltration, smuggling, etc, the official said.
