India’s international land border measures about 15,000 kms, prone to inclement weather and mostly inaccessible by road or rail routes. Hence, it is infeasible to reach grid power to all places along the border. The electrification of border areas offers an addressable market size of INR 5,000 crore.
The Department of Border Management was created in the Ministry of Home Affairs in January, 2004 to pay focused attention to the issues relating to management of international land and coastal borders, creation of infrastructure like roads, fencing and flood lighting of borders and implementation of Border Area Development Programme (BADP).
