India to Fence Indo-Myanmar Border for Enhanced Security

India to Fence Indo-Myanmar Border for Enhanced Security
  • In an endeavor to bolster border security measures, India has embarked on a significant project to fence the entire 1643-kilometer-long Indo-Myanmar border.
  • Home Minister Amit Shah made the announcement, underscoring the government’s commitment to fortifying national borders and enhancing surveillance capabilities.
  • India’s decision to fence the entire border effectively terminates the Free Movement Regime, signaling a shift towards stricter border control policies.
  • With the surge of anti-Junta rebels and tribal militants crossing over since the 2021 Myanmar military coup, the fencing initiative aims to curb unauthorized border crossings and enhance security measures.
  • The 1643-kilometer-long India-Myanmar border traverses through Mizoram, Manipur, Nagaland, and Arunachal Pradesh, covering regions prone to border infiltrations.
  • Approval has been granted for additional fencing works covering approximately 20 km in Manipur, with implementation scheduled to commence shortly.
