Smart Patrolling
a. Use of specially designed app for patrolling: To overcome the limitations of old practices of using pen, pencil and papers along with prolonged and time bound use of RT system E-patrol/Smart patrolling was introduced in Sundarban Tiger Reserve in 2015.
In this new system every camp has been given a cell phone having an android operating system with a compatible mobile application called ‘Hejje’ (Programmed in Java) installed in it for monitoring and patrolling purpose. With the help of this application the frontline staffs are recording their every possible activity like patrolling, monitoring the condition of fences, night patrolling, offence detections, and wildlife sightings.

b. Use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV): UAV or Drones has been introduced as a part of the Smart Patrolling initiative in Sundarban Tiger Reserve. These have proven a remarkably useful tool in patrolling those areas in the Tiger Reserve which are otherwise inaccessible. This tool has also proven useful in case of locating a strayed animal in a locality especially tiger. UAV are also being used to monitor an animal post release into the wild up to considerable distance inside the forest at close vicinity.

Nylon Net Fencing
Nylon-net fence has been found to play an important role in preventing the straying out of tigers into village's areas from forest. A protocol for maintenance of the nylon-net fencing has been designed with an aim of carrying out thorough checking and proper maintenance. The Protocol includes involvement of local Stakeholders in FPC/EDC members also along with forest staff.

Range-wise Location of the Existing Nylon-Net Fence and its Maintenance is given below
