NEW DELHI, May 16 � There has been no intrusion by the Chinese Army but during the last two years the People�s Liberation Army transgressed into India as many as 505 times, informed Minister of State for Home Affairs M Ramachandran in a Rajya Sabha reply.
No intrusion has been reported on Indo-China border during the last two years. However, there are cases of transgression due to the perception of the Line of Actual Control. The Indo-Tibetan Border Police has been deployed on India-China border as border guarding force, he said.
In 2010, India recorded 228 instances of transgression, the following year it came down marginally to 213, and till April this year, 64 instances have come to light, the Minister revealed.�
However, in a separate reply to a question on Chinese intrusion, Minister of Defence AK Antony said the number of incidents of Chinese transgression beyond India�s perception of LAC during the last five years have been generally according to established patterns.�There is no commonly delineated LAC between India and China. But there are a few areas along the border where India and China have differing perceptions of the LAC. Both sides undertake patrol up to all areas that fall within the Indian perception of the LAC, he explained.�
Specific incidents of transgression due to differences in the perception of LAC are taken up with the Chinese side. Effective border management is carried out through surveillance and regular patrolling by forces to prevent transgression from the Chinese side, Antony said.
Meanwhile, in Lok Sabha, Ministerof State for External Affairs Preneet Kaur clarified that India has made no commitment to anyone including the World Bank that New Delhi would not halt projects pertaining to Arunachal Pradesh for funding from any multi-lateral development bank.�
