New Delhi: Borders and their management has been one of the important concerns since the foundation of nations. Borders stand for the territorial integrity and political sovereignty of a country.

Ex-DG BSF KK Sharma IPS Rtd and D Kamalakar, IPS (retd) Ex ADG Police, Maharashtra will be the keynote speakers. Given their huge hands-on experience and understanding of the subject, a good brainstorming session covering conundrums of International Borders, Coastal Security, Cross border issues, Political underpinnings, Border Villages and Villagers, application of modern technology et al is in offing".

Pradeep Gupta himself has been a seasoned bureaucrat, having handled BM Division in the capacity of JS, informed that SAPI stands for the production of collaborative, actionable knowledge on issues of National importance. Dr Sangeeta Goel, and Sarang Nerkar Alok Tewari, co-founders of SAPI, the think tank or the thought factory as they call it, reiterated their motto to help bridge the gap between knowledge and policy and public and policymakers.

As part of the strategy to secure the borders, also to create infrastructure in the border areas of the country, India has taken various steps including the construction of fences, floodlighting, roads, Border Out Posts (BOPs), company Operating Bases (COBs) and deployment of technological solutions along the Indo-Pakistan, Indo-Bangladesh, indo-China, Indo-Nepal, Indo-Bhutan and Indo-Myanmar borders.
