Assam : Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh will inaugurate the BOLD-QIT project along the India-Bangladesh border in Dhubri district of Assam today. BOLD-QIT is the acronym for Border Electronically Dominated Quick Response Team Interception Technique.
It is the project to install technical systems under the Comprehensive Integrated Border Management System, which enables BSF to equip the Indo-Bangla borders with different kinds of sensors in unfenced riverine area of Brahmaputra and its tributaries.
BOLD-QIT will provide feeds to BSF Control Rooms on the Border and enable its Quick Reaction Teams to thwart any possibility of Illegal Cross Border Crossing and Crimes.
BSF is responsible for safeguarding of over four thousand kilometer long International Border with Bangladesh. At various places, it is not possible to erect Border Fence due to the geographical barriers. To overcome the problem, in 2017, the Home Ministry decided to go for technological solution besides the presence of manpower of BSF.(Agencies)
