(Riya Singh, Intern Journalist): The Indian Army has initiated a comprehensive inspection process to track Chinese PLA withdrawal from conflict points from the LAC in eastern Ladakh. The two armies already created a 4km buffer zone in Galwan Valley.

The establishment of buffer zones would briefly limit both armies’ patrolling operations throughout the region. Although some experts saw this as a positive measure, others cautioned that temporary curtailment of patrol rights should not become a long-term function that threatens the presence and power of Indians. The PLA has withdrawn from Patrolling Point-15 (Hot Springs) for up to 2km and a similar retreat is expected to be completed by Wednesday evening at PP-17 (Gogra) with the Indian Army pulling back proportionately.
