Situation Along India-China Border
Government is closely monitoring all activities in our neighbourhood which have bearing on national security. Required measures have been initiated though development of infrastructure as well as operational capabilities to achieve desired defence preparedness through accretion and modernization and deployment of forces to safeguard the sovereignty, territorial integrity and security of India.
China disputes the International Boundary between India and China. As there is no commonly delineated Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China, there are a few areas along the border where India and China have different perceptions of the LAC including territory in Arunachal Pradesh. Both sides patrols upto their respective perceptions of the LAC due to perceived differences in alignment of LAC. The areas along the LAC are kept under constant surveillance by regular patrolling by troops and other means. Specific incidents of transgressions due to differences in the perception of LAC are taken up with the Chinese side through established mechanism such as Hot Lines, Flag Meetings, Border personnel Meetings and normal diplomatic channels.
