Degrees Round-The-Year For New Border Posts Near China: 10 Points

The mountain warfare-trained force unveiled a fleet of its newly-acquired military trucks, sports utility vehicles (SUVs), all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), snow scooters, bikes, mobile communication wing, excavators and a few other medium- lift four-wheeled vehicles during its 56th Raising Day celebrations at its base in Greater Noida.

He said that the home ministry has also approved the ITBP's proposal to hire helicopters for high-altitude border posts.

"Recently, we have got a proposal to build 50 new border outposts for the force and we are working on it".

He said the government was considering using technology to ensure that a temperature of at least 20 degrees Celsius was maintained in all high-altitude ITBP posts so that forward border posts were not abandoned during extreme snow and cold.

The Home Minister also said that Model Border Post is being constructed in Ladakh and if successful, it will be implemented on all border posts.

The ITBP is assigned an arduous task of guarding a 3488 km long Indo- China border from Karakorum pass in Laddakh to Jajeph La in Arunachal Pradesh.

There are 176 posts along the border.

Rajnath Singh said that the facilities that were given in housing and infrastructure with the 1962-raised force, he was not satisfied and was seriously working to improve these areas. "The Force has distinguished itself through its bravery and humanitarian ethos", Modi said in a tweet.

According to the Newspaper, After completion of the trial phase, we will make necessary modification in these vehicles."The vehicles help ITBP jawans to patrol and hold the border even in bone-chilling weather".

The minister asked the ITBP troops to build good relations with residents in the border areas as they are "strategic assets" and stakeholders in keeping the frontier safe.

"Arrangements are being made to make sure that every ITBP jawan/officer knows basic Mandarin language at training level so that they don't face language issues at the border during face-offs with PLA", he said.

He announced that 35 old border posts in very high-altitude areas are also being upgraded as "composite" units. The paramilitary was also enhancing its intelligence setup, he added.
