India has planned to conduct a massive air exercise in the next few days amid the ongoing standoff with China on the Actual Line of Control. 

The massive exercise will occur in February amid the deterioration of the relationship and the ongoing standoff with China on the Line of Actual Control (LAC), a de facto border between the states.

On the other hand, the exercise will carry out ‘Pralay’ involving all its major air bases in the northeast, including the recently moved drone squadrons, Rafale and Sukhoi Su-30 fighter jets and other aircraft.

India also equipped the Northeastern region with massive military weaponry and deployed and activated the S-400 air defence squadron in the region, which can engage any hostile aircraft or missile from a distance of up to 400 Km, officials said.

The entire northeast airspace along the China border is under the control of the Indian Air Force’s Eastern Command in Shillong, which frequently launches its fighters whenever the Chinese attempt to fly too close to the Line of Actual Control (LAC) or move in a direction toward Indian locations there.

The Northeastern states of India, also called seven sister states, connect through a narrow corridor, ‘Siliguri’, with the rest of India and have a border with China, Bhutan and Nepal, Bangladesh and Myanmar.

In 1962, India and China fought over the disputed border in the Himalayan region and numerous standoffs. They were still unable to agree on the problems at hand.

According to the report, India has invested massively in military equipment and infrastructure over the past three years to counter any neighbouring country’s movement.

On the other hand, The Chinese have also been increasing their activities along the border area and are under the constant watch of Indian security agencies, as per officials.
