Madhukar Gupta Committee report submitted to Union Government
15 March 2017 Current Affairs: The Committee, constituted under the Chairmanship of former Home Secretary Madhukar Gupta, submitted its report to the Union Government.

Kiren Rijiju, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, announced the submission of the report on 14 March 2017.

The Madhukar Gupta Committee was constituted to strengthen border protection and address vulnerabilities in fencing along the Indo-Pakistan border.

The Committee has given its recommendations broadly on the issues of Threats and Border Protection, assessment of force level, deployment on the border, infrastructure and technology issues for protection of border and administrative issues.

The Government decided to initiate action in light of the recommendations of the Committee in consultation with the stakeholders.

The Committee was appointed on 5 April 2016.

It was constituted three months after terrorists belonging to Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammed had breached the Indo-Pak border in Punjab and attacked the Pathankot airbase killing seven security personnel.

Recently in the first week of March 2017, the Supreme Court directed the committee to oversee and monitor the progress of Indo-Bangladesh border fencing carried out by the Union Government. The top court also asked the panel to submit its report in four months.
