Under the Centre-sponsored Village Vibrant Program, the Himachal Pradesh government has begun building of key infrastructure along the 240-kilometer long border with China, mostly in 210 villages in Kinnaur and Lahaul-Spiti districts. The state has an 80-kilometer border with China at Chumar in Lahaul-Spiti and a 160-kilometer border with China between Daroti and Mumti Dogri in Kinnaur districts. As there are 231 revenue villages and 90 inhabited villages in Lahaul-Spiti district, the state, with the support of the Centre, is building facilities and opportunities in the area.
70 of the 81 communities in the Border Area Development Program are within 10 kilometres of the border, with a population density of 2 square kilometres per person. The programme includes holding special meetings in all of the villages affected, with ideas compiled and submitted to the government. Modern highways, footbridges, and helipads will be created in important locations as part of the initiative. Farmers will be trained in horticultural development, forestry, and organic farming, and will have access to drinking water and irrigation infrastructure. Villagers’ livelihoods will be improved as a result of the infrastructure upgrade effort.
The state has submitted suggestions to the Centre for the development of a road connecting the border territories of the two states from Brua in Kinnaur to Harshil in Uttarakhand via the 17,000-foot LamKhaga Pass. With the exception of periodic airspace violations and Chinese forces crossing into Himachal, the border with China has been mainly quiet. The government is concentrating its efforts in the tribal areas on the construction of road networks, electricity, and telecommunications systems.
