There was no ceremonial meeting between officers of the Indian and Chinese armies on the Independence Day today at the strategic Nathu La border amid the continued standoff at Doklam, but personnel from two sides exchanged candies.

The Chinese troops had twice tried to enter the Indian side through two different locations between 6 am and 9 am on Tuesday, but failed in both attempts.

A minor scuffle took place between the Indian and Chinese forces on Tuesday after the former stopped the Chinese People's Liberation Army troops from crossing the Line of Control (LAC).

Indian troops are also escalating supplies, making it clear that they will not back off till there is a diplomatic solution. Heading a 21-member delegation, Wang is likely to take Nepal into its confidence on the issue of the standoff, an official said.

IT and law minister Ravi Shankar Prasad recently held a top-level meeting to assess the situation with regard to the Chinese engagement in India's electronics and IT sector, according to sources.

The reason for dismissal of Indian employees is said to be border standoff between China and India besides alleged theft of the technology.

"There was an altercation near the Pangong lake", said a police officer in Srinagar, the capital of India's Jammu and Kashmir state, under which the area falls.

Earlier this month, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said that India's "intrusion" had not only violated China's territorial sovereignty, but also challenged Bhutan's sovereignty and independence.

When the Indian side staked claim to the area during negotiations in late 1990s, the Chinese army constructed a metal-top road and insisted it was part of Aksai Chin, which is under the latter's control, officials said.

Chinese companies have now nearly become the backbone to India's massive requirement in electronics manufacturing with the current valuation of tech imports from China sitting at approximately United States dollars 22 billion as per a recent study by Confederation of Indian Industries.
