Udhampur, July 22,(Scoop News)-Responding to a query of a member Dr Matriyan, Union Defence Minister, Arun Jaitly, on Monday said there is no commonly delineated Line of Actual Control (LAC) between China and India.
He said there are areas along the border where India and China have differing perception of LAC. Due to both sides undertaking patrolling upto their respective perceptions of the LAC, transgressions do occur.
Jaitly said there is a well-established system for exchange of information and projecting any differences through border personnel meetings or flag meetings between the military personnel from the two sides, wherein they are guided by provisions of various agreements between India and China.
Along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir, the army has adopted a robust counter-infiltration strategy which has an appropriate mix of technology and human resources put together to check infiltration effectively.
He said innovative troop’s deployment, efficient use of surveillance and monitoring
devices and fencing along the Line of Control have enhanced the ability to detect and intercept infiltration.
The army, Jaitly said, has deployed adequate forces along the China and Pakistan borders and is well prepared to counter threats both in the conventional and sub-conventional domains.
There is no separately identified expenditure for purchase of defence equipment exclusively for combating Chinese and Pakistani aggression along the LoC.
