To Improve Efficiency Of Soldiers At Indo-China Border, Centre Offers Snow Scooters To ITBP

Published on 13 February, 2017 at 5:08 pm By

India and China share a 3,488 km long disputed border. Disagreement between the nuclear-armed neighbours over parts of their border led to a brief war in 1962. China is currently occupying India’s 38,000 square km (14,600 sq miles) territory on the Aksai Chin plateau in the west.

Since the Line of Actual Control (LAC) is not physically demarcated on the ground so each side, sends out patrols to mark their respective claim leading to face-offs and stand-offs between the two militaries. Though transgressions from the Chinese side have dipped as compared to last year, the tension still remain high in key border posts.

The security of border posts at the border is in the hands of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police, which has to endure harsh weather and modest facilities to guard our borders in the mountains. But to smoothen the patrolling in the Himalayas along the India-China border, the ITBP will now get snow scooters.

This will reduce travel time and increase efficiency of the soldiers.

The first lot of five scooters, procured from a US-based firm, will be deployed at border locations in Ladakh, Uttarakhand and Sikkim that overlook Chinese PLA deployment on the other side.

Each scooter cost Rs 1 crore and could seat two personnel. It can negotiate 45-degree slopes and were supported by chaincase belts to help the 278 kg machine glide smoothly and cut through ice.

Equipped with hydraulic brakes for effective ground control, these scooters can hold over 41 litres of fuel. They are the most modern variants of such vehicles.

The Modi government is keen to strengthen Indian borders and recently, Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said that that work on installing ‘smart fence’ along 3,323-km-long the Indo-Pak border will begin soon. To enhance the security system across the International Border, the Union government has approved Rs 800 crore for world’s best laser-based anti-infiltration technology.
