The Committee feels that the adequacy of modern equipment for surveillance during the day as well as night is a pre-requisite to detect any attempt of infiltration or illegal migration. The Committee, therefore, recommends that the Ministry should immediately procure all essential surveillance equipment especially those required for surveillance during night, like Hand-held Thermal Imager and PNV Monocular, at the earliest and apprise the Committee of the progress in the matter.
