In July, Beijing had issued a notice to the Chinese nationals in India asks them to pay close attention to their personal safety and local security situation.

"The Chinese government attaches great importance to safety and lawful rights and interests of overseas Chinese citizens in accordance with the security condition of the relevant countries," foreign ministry spokesperson Geng Shuang told reporters in July.

An article in the Global Times had earlier called on Chinese firms to reduce their investments in India in view of the tension.

The Indian embassy in Beijing earlier stated that the Chinese tourists arriving in India has gone up from 21,152 in 2003 to more than 2 lakh in 2013. Moreover, several firms in India employ Chinese nationals.
