No-patrolling zone or buffer zone is one of the means to prevent new confrontations between two armed forces after they disengaged from a particular conflict point. It involves creating a zone in which troops from neither side is allowed to patrol.
India and China has planned to set up a no-patrolling zone at one of the disputed areas in the Gogra Hot Springs Kongka La sector. This came as the result of the 12th round of military talks in the Ladakh sector. It was earlier used by India in 2013 to bring an end to the disputes with China along the LAC.
