On October 24, Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) celebrated its 52nd anniversary with a ceremonial parade at the Tigri campus, New Delhi. Looking back at the past year, ITBP can’t seem to deny that this has been the most challenging year for their personnel. Starting with the incursions of the Chinese Army at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in April, which led to the face-off between the Chinese and the Indian forces at the border, to the Uttarakhand flood rescue efforts, considered the biggest ever operation till date, the ITBP faced tough challenges this year. This was again followed by more incursions from the Chinese Army in the subsequent months.

But the good news is that the ITBP is getting a major push from the government to develop its infrastrusture both at the border and its various headquarters in the mainland. Speaking at the Raising Day parade, chief guest R.P.N. Singh, minister of state (Home) said that the government has sanctioned Rs 1,260 crore for construction on the ITBP locations. It includes accommodation for jawans, construction of forward locations and other operational and administrative buildings and structures. He also said that measuring eco-friendly stride towards energy requirement, a total of 69 forward ITBP posts would soon have three to 10 KVA solar power plants which will facilitate uninterrupted power supply for various needs.
