Green clearance for 38 outposts in Arunachal, Ladakh along China border

Thirty-four border outposts in Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh along the Sino-India border have received a crucial go-ahead from an environmental panel. These include some in areas that recently saw border hostilities between Indian and Chinese troops.

The approvals – paving the way for scaling up strategic border infrastructure – have come amid reports of repeated incursion by Chinese soldiers in border areas.

Several of the 24 border outposts of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), which were cleared at the September 24 meeting of the National Board for Wildlife (NBWL), are in areas that saw Indian troops clash with soldiers of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) last summer.

For the construction of 24 border outposts at Chushul, Hot Springs, Chumar, Dungti, Dhan Singh, PP 16, Silung La, Hanley, Lukung, Bao Nallah and more – termed in government documents as ‘important from the national security point of view’- 65 hectares of forest land will be diverted from the Changthang wildlife sanctuary.
