Amit Shah says anti-drone solutions will be deployed soon

Minister of State from MHA Nityanand Rai and Ajay Kumar Mishra and Home Secretary Ajay Kumar Bhalla attended the BSF’s 18th Investiture Ceremony as well.

On July 17, according to the Times of India (TOI), Home Minister Amit Shah has said that anti-drone solutions were actively being worked upon by agencies including Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and would be deployed very soon for the advancement of border surveillance.

The announcement comes after the detection of 61 drone activities by the Border Security Force (BSF) on India’s western border in the past one year.


In addition, gaps in border fencing would be plugged by the year 2022. Shah claimed that it was Narendra Modi-led government that provided the country with an independent security policy where while resolving to maintain peace with all, gave a “befitting response” if a threat was posed to the borders or sovereignty of India.

With a major focus on the drone threat, he continued saying that DRDO as well as other agencies were busy in the development of anti-drone technologies.

During his address at BSF’s 18th Investiture Ceremony at Vigyan Bhawan in the national capital, the HM stated, “I am confident that we shall secure our borders soon with indigenous anti-drone solutions.”

Furthermore, Shah said border forces should be starting with the preparation of tackling other technology-led security challenges based on artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics.

He urged the security forces to put efforts in checking migration from border villages by ensuring the implementation of the benefits of development schemes.
