How much of Indian territory does China claim and why Indian Army holds a military edge vis-a-vis PLA?

The 3,488-kilometre-long Line of Actual Control (LAC), the de-facto border between China and India, has a difference of perception of its actual alignment at nearly 14 different points stretching from Ladakh to Arunachal Pradesh. These have, since India’s Independence, emerged as points of friction between the forces of two countries. The latest flare-up in eastern Ladakh, which began earlier last month in the Galwan Valley and Pangong Tso Lake areas, took place in what is known as the Western Sector of the Sino-India border. Almost 1,600 km long western sector extends from Ladakh to the junction of Himachal and Uttarakhand, at a point called Gaya Peak.
