Ensuring Peace and Tranquillity at Indo-China Border

The two sides agree that peace and tranquillity on the border is the basis for the continued expansion of India-China relations. However, there is no commonly delineated Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China. There are areas along the border where India and China have differing perception of LAC. Due to both sides undertaking patrolling upto their perception of the LAC transgressions do occur. Government regularly takes up any transgression along LAC with the Chinese side through established mechanisms including Border Personnel meetings, flag meetings, meeting of Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination on India-China Border Affairs and diplomatic channels. Further, in order to improve exchanges between two sides, two additional Border Personnel Meeting points has been operationalised in 2015.
