Re: Women to guard the high himalayas---as part of Indo tibetan border police

The Indo-Tibet Border Police (ITBP) is ready with its first female squad of 500 freshly trained personnel to be posted on the India-China border. The women, in the rank of constable, were inducted in the border-guarding force after 44-weeks of training in battle craft and mountain survival and will now be sent to frontier areas for final acclimatization before being deployed at ITBP posts along the 3,488-km Sino-India Line of Actual Control (LAC).

These 'mahila' contingents are expected to be posted by March this year at about 20 forward locations of the ITBP situated at heights of between 8,000-14,000 feet, including at the 'Mana pass' border post, the last village on the Indian side in Uttarakhand.

ITBP director general Krishna Chaudhary, after reviewing the 'passing out parade' of the new personnel, asked them to exhibit the best skills that they have learnt during training to discharge their duties in some of the most difficult locations in the Himalayan ranges.

"You will be further trained in field training and high-altitude acclimatization before your final deployment. I am sure you will do the country and the force proud," the DG said after taking the salute at the Basic Training Centre (BTC) of the force at Bhanu.

This is the first time that India is deploying women troops right at the front, one which is considered to be the most arduous and tricky given the harsh climatic conditions and extreme mountainous terrain along the India-China border.

ITBP, raised in the aftermath of the 1962 Chinese aggression, has also begun creating logistical and residential facilities for its women personnel at these posts and it is expected to be completed by early March.

The force plans to have women personnel make up at least 40% of its strength at these forward posts


These women, who were recruited in the force last year in February, hail from various states with as many as 97 of them, the highest, coming from the hill state of Uttarakhand.
Among the rest, 10 are from Himachal Pradesh, 51 from Bihar, 11 from Haryana, 22 from Rajasthan, 63 from Uttar Pradesh and 35 from Maharashtra.

There are a further 11 cadets hailing from Punjab, one each from Delhi and Andhra Pradesh, 35 from Assam, six from Chhattisgarh, 21 from Gujarat, 26 from Jharkhand and three from Jammu and Kashmir, among others.

Women constables were first inducted into the 70,000- strong force in 2008, but they were until now only deployed for rendering law and order duties in troubled areas and in a few instances at the Nathu La pass to facilitate traders and frisk women.
ITBP has a total of 1,661 women personnel in its various ranks and branches of work with the maximum number of 1,033 being in the constabulary ranks.
