Due to both sides undertaking patrolling upto their respective perception of the LAC, transgressions do occur.

(iv) 2019 – Information is being collected

(d) & (e): During the recent visit of Chinese President to India, views were exchanged on outstanding issues, including on the boundary question. Issues discussed also included efforts to arrive at a mutually-agreed framework for fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable settlement based on Political Parameters and Guiding Principles agreed by two sides in 2005. There were talks on continued efforts to ensure peace and tranquillity in the border areas and additional Confidence Building Measures.
