According to reports, 50 new outposts will be established along the border in Himachal Pradesh, Uttarakhand and Arunachal Pradesh. Singh also said that new roads will be constructed for an easier logistical and troop movement. The Indo Tibetan Border Police will be taught Mandarin to be able to converse and understand their Chinese counterparts.

According to Indian Express, 12 teachers have already been recruited by ITBP to teach Mandarin to its cadets at the training academy at Mussorie. These cadets will have to pass the language test before being deployed.



 

An officer at the training academy commented:

“Currently, those who know the language can barely speak 10 sentences. The idea is to help them hold a conversation, with proficiency in 50-60 sentences that they can use for an interaction with the Chinese. Eventually, the entire force will have a working knowledge of the language.”

The officer also said that not only the language, but the style of speaking will also be taught. A number of soldiers in PLA come from Tibet, where a different style of speaking is used. At present, only 150 personnel out of a strong 90,000 force speak the language fluently.
