There have been many incidents of Chinese fighter jets flying close to the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Eastern Ladakh even after meetings between Corps Commanders were held.

During the past three to four weeks, Chinese planes have been flying near to the disputed land border (LAC) in an attempt to test Indian defences. Responses by the Indian Air Force to this scenario are being taken extremely seriously, and they’re taking no chances in order to deal with the issue and prevent it from getting out of hand in any manner.

Provocative actions by the Chinese have been met with a strong response from the Indian Air Force. The MiG-29 and Mirage 2000 fighters, among others, have been moved to advanced bases from which they can respond to Chinese activities within minutes, the IAF claims.

Despite the fact that the Indian Air Force has dispatched its own fighter jets to counter Chinese aircraft, it appears that the People’s Liberation Army is worried about the IAF’s plans to upgrade its infrastructure in the Ladakh sector, which would allow it to keep tabs on Chinese activities even in areas under its control. While the IAF is taking these measures very seriously, it is also keeping an extremely careful eye on the Chinese flying patterns in that area, according to the sources.

Ladakh’s military infrastructure in India has also been upgraded at a rapid pace since China attempted to unilaterally change the status quo on the LAC in the April-May 2020 period.

At some time between June 24 and 25, a Chinese fighter aircraft went near to a site of friction in eastern Ladakh.

There have been many violations of CBMs along the LAC near Chumar since then, according to those who spoke to the media.

Aircraft from the Indian Air Force’s Rafale fighter planes, which can reach Ladakh quickly from their home station in Ambala near the country’s northern borders, have also been seen flying over the Eastern Ladakh region, according to the sources.

Also reportedly discussed during July 17 Corps Commander talks at Chushul Moldo border meeting point, sources say. ‘

In a recent interview, Air Chief Marshal Vivek Ram Chaudhari of the Indian Air Force said that the country’s air force is in the best shape it has ever been “We scramble our fighters or put our systems on high alert whenever we detect Chinese aircraft or RPAS flying too close to the LAC, and we do so whenever necessary. They’ve been put off to a large degree by this.”
