The process of authorizing the new battalions of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) to protect the Line of Control (LoC) between India and China is in its final stages. Union Minister Nithyananda Roy said this on Sunday. He said the government was fully committed to providing transportation and logistics support to all security forces.

Roy was speaking at the ITBP 60th Rising Day celebrations, which were trained in mountain battles. He said the center approved 47 new border posts and a dozen camps (operational bases for border patrol forces) last year. The Union Minister said talks were in the final stages to provide personnel and battalions to the ITBP.

According to the news agency PTI, the ITBP will soon approve seven new battalions with a staff of nearly eight thousand for its new border posts, officials said. According to reports, these new battalions of ITBP will be mainly deployed in the LAC’s Arunachal Pradesh sector in the eastern part of India.

The proposal to allow new ITBP battalions and permission to set up a sector headquarters in the northeast has been under consideration by the Union Home Ministry for two years, officials said. But, with the approval of new border posts and camp management last year, it is now expected that the proposal will be cleared soon.

Roy lauded the ITBP for its bravery and appropriate response to its rivals during the clashes between Indian and Chinese forces in Ladakh in May-June last year. In addition, the Union Minister awarded medals to 20 officers and ITBP employees for displaying their unparalleled courage and bravery during times of conflict.
