March 5, 2015: The Government of India will replace all floodlights along the India-Pakistan international border with LED lights. LC Goyal, Home Secretary, held a meeting of senior officials to discuss the project and its monitoring system.
The government has decided that to start with a pilot project will be undertaken under which all floodlights on a stretch of 14 km of the border in Punjab will be replaced LED lights. Bids have already been invited for the pilot project, and LC Goyal has asked the Border Management Division to complete the initial project at the earliest. A Home Ministry official said that the cost of converting traditional lighting along the border to LED lighting will be compensated through energy saving and saving due to long life of LEDs.
The international border in Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab, Rajasthan and Gujarat, which stretches over about 2,000 km is lit by floodlights.
As using floodlights over such long stretch increases electricity consumption, the government has taken this decision with an aim to conserve energy. According to experts, LED lights along the border will have other benefits as well as these are also much brighter than traditional lights and as they have longer lifespan, their maintenance is also less.
