In a first, the Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP) has started an initiative 
by which they would  deploy women constable to keep a check on the very rugged 
China-Indian border present in Ladakh.
“More than 150 women constables have been deployed  to Leh by end of MAY. 
They will be located at the battalion headquarters present in Leh and will 
be patrolling the border outposts (BOPs) in groups of 15-20 on a rotation term,” 
an ITBP officer said.


 The ITBP guards  the border with China in five states that are  J&K, Himachal, 
Uttarakhand, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh, also having posts which are located 
at an altitude up to 18000  feet in areas which are very remote and are snow-bound 
areas through out the year. There BOPs have been identified where will these women 
constables have to be deployed. Modalities such as having women officers and women 
doctors to cater to the needs of women personnel in forward areas along with requisite 
administrative and logistic facilities have also been factored in their deployment.
“Since the women constables have been got into the wings of the ITBP, it is a very 
wise step that they undertake the fundamental responsibility that is the force which 
is meant for, rather than being located on merely administrative or clerical duties in 
headquarters or rear echelons,” the officer said.
