    However, the Indian Army is prepared for a long haul and has even raised its guard. There is no question of letting down the guard and the Indian Army would remain on a very high state of alert to thwart any move by the Chinese.

    Since the violent brawl of June 15, there have been no flare ups. However the situation remains tense as both sides continue to engage with each other both on the diplomatic and military level to diffuse tensions.

    The assessment states that the disengagement could take place first n the Gogra Post-Hot Springs and Galwan Valley sectors. However the real problem lies in the Finger Area in Pangong Tso where the Chinese have set up permanent bunkers and observation posts.
