is the project to install technical systems under the Comprehensive Integrated
Border Management System (CIBMS). CIBMS is an integration of a number of high
tech surveillance equipment, technologies and trained human resource to ensure robust
surveillance across borders. It is designed to guard stretches where
physical surveillance is not possible either due to inhospitable terrain
or riverine borders.

Border Management System (CIBMS), was formulated in 2016 after the attack on
the Pathankot Air Force Station. Two smart border fencing pilot projects are in
place along International Border in

section of international border between Indian and Bangladesh in Dhubri

channels. During monsoon the entire area is flooded which makes it challenging
for the BSF to patrol.
