Fencing along India-Bangladesh Border
Assam has 263 km of international border with Bangladesh out of which 143.9 km is land border and 119.1 km of reverine border. Govt. has sanctioned 230.03 km border fence in Assam out of which 221.56 km has been completed.

As per mutual understanding, no construction of fencing is generally undertaken within 150 yards of Indo-Bangladesh Border. Moreover, border fencing has been erected after due consideration of terrain constraints in the area i.e. availability of the land, presence of nullah/river, villages, etc. and concerns of local population. Further, gates are also provided through the fencing to facilitate access of villager to their lands beyond fencing.

Besides, Border Guarding Force also maintains strict surveillance and vigil to ensure that no encroachment takes place.

This was stated by Shri Mullappally Ramachandran, Minister of State of Home Affairs in written reply in the Rajya Sabha today.
