  • They can help to tackle all the regulatory issues including trade, migration, crime, etc.
  • It eliminates the need to deploy multiple personnel for different law enforcement.
  • Unified personnel can be more effective in dealing with inter-connected issues.

Potential of Smart Walls:

  • India has deployed smart walls through a comprehensive integrated border management system along borders with Pakistan and Bangladesh.
  • These smart walls integrate land, water, air, and underground surveillance.
