Hindustan Times reported on the 3rd that after a new confrontation between the Indian and Chinese armies on the South Bank of Bangong Lake, the Indian Army decided to change its defensive posture from border control to border consolidation.

Indian media quoted senior Indian military officials as saying that the Indian army has entered the safe border mode and has made military deployment again to prevent the invasion of Chinese troops in Ladakh and other areas.. According to the report, the Indian army has deployed a combat team mixed with armored and mechanized forces in dapsan basin to counter attack by the mechanized brigade deployed by the Chinese army there. At the same time, another Indian combat unit is stationed in chumar to ensure control of the Chinese Armys logistics supply route.

The times of India quoted an official source as saying on the 3rd that, considering the current situation, Indian army commander naravan went to the Ladakh area for a two-day inspection to comprehensively assess the local security situation. An anonymous source told the global times that naravan delayed his scheduled visit to Myanmar. He will return to New Delhi immediately after the inspection and make special reports to Indian Defense Minister Singh and defense chief of staff Rawat. A day earlier, Indian Air Force Commander badawulia went to the eastern theater command of the air force to check the combat readiness of troops along the actual control line of the Sino Indian border in Arunachal Pradesh (Southern Tibet) and Sikkim state. Several Indian media reported that the Indian military may be preparing for a potential military confrontation.

However, the position of Indias foreign ministry seems to be cooling the current situation. Indian Foreign Ministry spokesman Srivastava said on the 3rd that dialogue at the military and diplomatic levels is still the way out for resolving differences. We are committed to solving all problems through peaceful dialogue, hoping to quickly restore peace and tranquility in the border area through complete disengagement and downgrading of the situation. But he also accused that Chinas actions in more than four months have caused the current results. With regard to the Indian accusations, China has repeatedly stated that it is the Indian armys illegal cross-border provocation, unilateral change of the status quo in the border areas, and violation of bilateral agreements and important consensus. According to the times of India, India and China held a teacher level meeting on March 3. The report stressed that the meeting between the two sides was not held in the house as usual, but in an open area.
