SSBs are stationed near the important Tri-Junction (India-Bhutan-Tibet) and these border outposts will strengthen the SSB. Let me tell you that after the long dispute with the Chinese army of India in 2017, the tri-junctions are considered strategically important. It is noteworthy that SSB is allowed to construct 734 posts. After the construction of these 22 outposts, SSB will have 722 outposts.
A top SSB official said, “These new posts will strengthen the SSB in the border areas. The SSB will get a lot of help, especially in tri-junction areas. These new 22 outposts have been built in record time and most of them are on the Indo-Bhutan border. According to sources, these border posts have been constructed faster than before amid the dispute over LAC (Line of Actual Control) with China.
