    During these latest incursions, the Chinese troops entered 800 metres into the Chamoli area. They also had a verbal showdown with the Indo-Tibetan Border Police. This lasted for around two hours before they left.

    The government has played it down and called it a transgression. These happen to due to different perceptions of the Line of Actual Control. These issues have been reported from the same area in 1958. That year a Chinese delegation had visited India. It was decided that both countries will not send troops into this area. It was also agreed upon that only shepherds would be allowed into this area. However, a final settlement on this dispute is still awaited.

    On such incursions, the ITBP has sent reports to the home ministry. At a Chief Minister's conference it was stated that the Chinese had entered this territory at least 37 times between 2007 and 2012.
