According to the Home Ministry, of the 2,289.66-km border with Pakistan, 2,034.96 km has been covered by physical barriers, including fencing. The remaining 254.80 km is to be covered by physical and non-physical barriers shortly, officials said.
Since there are stretches along the border where construction of physical barriers is not feasible due to geographic constraints, the government plans to deploy technology solutions, which include deployment of cameras, sensors, radars and lasers.
