ITBP takes over Tehri Lake Adventure Institute in the China border sharing state Uttarakhand

  • | Tuesday | 22nd September, 2020

The ITBP is deployed extensively in the hill-state to guard the Line of Actual Control (LAC) with China and has its bases in several districts of the state.

After signing a memorandum on Monday, the Indo-Tibetan Police took over the administration of Tehri Lake Adventure Institute in Uttarakhand on Tuesday.

The ITBP will use the institute to train security personnel and youth in adventure water sports. This take over can be seen as a crucial strategic tactic as ITBP is deployed along the lines if LAC and Uttarakhand shares its border with China.

ITBP Deputy Inspector General G S Chauhan and Uttarakhand Tourism Development Board Director Prashant Arya signed the MoU at the forces’ northern frontier camp. “With this MoU, the ITBP will take over the Tehri Lake Adventure Institute for 20 years,” an ITBP spokesperson said.

“The institute at Tehri will now be administered and managed by ITBP officials and they will impart training of water sports including kayaking, canoeing, rowing, sailing, para-sailing, para-gliding, water rescue and life saving course to its own personnel, paramilitary and state police forces personnel. Local youth will also be trained in water sports,” the spokesperson said.
