How to India save its border with China

One of the most important factors determining the outcome of the war is the increased deployment of men and machines into the workplace.

Ladakh's current position leading to the death of over 20 Indian soldiers including a police official is a grim reminder of India's weak relations with China.

The incident has set the LAC's mood high. With a lack of trust to hit the high point after China's recent border crossing, the scene apparently changed how Indian troops were ready to handle things when the situation went wrong.

One of the most important factors determining the outcome of the war is the increased deployment of men and machines into the workplace. So, what has India done over the years to make sure they are not caught.

The Actual Control (LAC) line separates the Indian-controlled territory from the Chinese-controlled area its length of 3,488 km. The line is divided into three zones: the eastern sector includes Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim, the middle section consists of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh, and the western sector includes Ladakh. Here we look at India's readiness in each sector.


It was one of the most neglected areas until the 1999 Kargil war, which brought the need to mobilize dedicated troops to face simultaneous challenges on the western and eastern fronts. Shortly after the Kargil War, India raised the Fire and Fury Corps and directly placed the task of ensuring LAC security in Ladakh.

It is part of the XIV Corps, which is headquartered in Leh. It comes under the Northern Military Command and has the 3rd and 8th Infantry Divgment under it.

Uttarakhand And Himachal Pradesh

This area falls within the protection of the 6th Mountain Division. It was promoted by the Indian Army in 1962, and was formerly known as the 6th Infantry Division under British Raj. Headquartered in Bareilly, the division is part of Central Command.


Sikkim comes under the protection of the XXXIII Corps, which has 3 divisions. Its headquarters are located in Sukna in North Bengal, near the city of Siliguri.

India gave a slash of Chinese blood in 1967 to the Natu La sector in Sikkim, resulting in the death of 400 Chinese soldiers. To further strengthen the defense in this sector, the Indian Army has directly issued the Mountain Strike Corps, which is part of the XVII Corps, based in Panagarh, West Bengal.

At a time of need, this strike force could carry out offensive operations against China in the LAC.

Arunachal Pradesh

The Indian Army has two corpses assigned to repair the sanctity of the Arunachal-China border. The first is the III Corps, which is being transferred to head in Dimapur, Nagaland state. One is the IV Corps, with its headquarters in Tezpur, Assam. Each of the three mountains is accurate, which can be placed immediately on the Sino-Indian border.

The Power of the Spirit

In Arunachal Pradesh, the Indian Air Force has deployed six advanced locations (ALGs) including Mechuka, Walong, Passighat, Ziro, Tuting, and Along. All of these ALGs can be used for special operations and heliborne. In fact, the IAF's-SU-30 fighter planes can operate on these ALGs.

The IAF resumed the Daulat Beg Oldie (DBO) flight in 2008 in eastern Ladakh. It is one of the highest holding facilities in the world, which can be used by major IAF indicators like the C-130J Super Hercules and AN-32. There is a plan to have a full-fledged Holy Spirit facility in Ladakh soon.

With potential air challenges from China in mind, the Tezpur Air Force (Assam) station is firmly built with the right resources. It is located about 172 kilometers from the Chinese border and has two SU-30 MKI fighters. The Akash Missile group is also included in this area and there is a plan to install Brahmos missiles soon.
