New Delhi, February 16

In a major push to counter Chinese manoeuvres on the border, the government today sanctioned a proposal to hire 9,400 personnel to raise seven new battalions for the Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP), a force that guards the Line of Actual Control (LAC).

The Cabinet also approved a new operational base for the ITBP and the construction of the 4.1-km Shinkun La tunnel on the Nimu-Padam-Darcha road to provide all-weather connectivity to the frontier areas of Ladakh. Briefing the media, Union Minister Anurag Thakur said the decision on the new battalions was taken at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Security (CCS), chaired by the PM.
