Guwahati, Dec 1: The Border Security Force (BSF) Guwahati Frontier, since its inception, has been assigned to guard a very challenging and complex Indo-Bangladesh border in states of West Bengal and Assam with an area of responsibility of 509 Km along Bangladesh, including 91.726 Km long riverine borders, Charland and undulating grounds.

“To secure the assigned International Border on Indo – Bangladesh border, 11 BSF Bns are deployed under three sectors including a Water wing. The topographical complexities of the border gets further aggravated as the population lives in close proximity on both sides of the border and has ethnic & cultural similarities posing serious challenges to troops on ground. The socio–religio–politic dynamics of bordering districts of West Bengal and Assam also differs from each other resulting in entirely different security scenarios,” BSF press release stated.

Guwahati Frontier, Border Security Force has distinguished itself with flying colors in each and every task assigned to it over the years.


“It has always displayed the highest standards of professionalism in guarding Indo-Bangladesh borders despite the terrain and demographic challenges as well as in internal security and natural disaster situations. Due to sheer professionalism and hard work, Guwahati Ftr has earned a rightful place in matters connected with the security and sanctity of the International Border,” BSF statement said.

It further added, “During current year, Seema Praharis of Guwahati Frontier have effectively checked and prevented trans-border crimes and also managed to apprehend large numbers of smugglers/miscreants on the borders and remained committed to maintain a secure environment on the border. In the last one year (Period between 1st Jan’ 2023 to 30 Nov’ 2023), total seizure worth Rs. 12 Crores (approx.) consisting Cattle Heads, Phensedyl, Gold, Yaba Tablets, Sukhi Tablets, Ganja and Others Contraband items etc have been seized in the AOR of Guwahati Frontier,”.

Guwahati Frontier is maintaining professional relations with its counterpart i.e. Border Guard Bangladesh and both the Forces are continuously making best efforts to further improve the bilateral relations through mutual cooperation, and maintain peaceful situation in the border areas. Besides many contentious issues on the border have been resolved.

“Inspector General Level talks (Border Coordination Conference) were organized in September 2023 to discuss the matters related to border management and mutual interests in which we have received a very positive response from our counterpart Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) Bangladesh,” the press statement said.
