Top right corner, the snake flag I am assuming is the 6th (I) Armoured Brigade (Sand Viper Brigade) which I thought was deployed in Surathgarh?

Any source ?
An extract from the same article I just posted
"The first division of the mountain strike corps was raised in the eastern sector but the raising of the second division at Pathankot in 2017-18 was never completed. The raising was stopped due to a paucity of funds with the government, along with a rethink within the Army over the limitations in launching a full-fledged strike corps at the current levels of border infrastructure"

Thanks. With the current border dynamics, we need two more divisions, one each in the Central and Eastern sectors to strengthen our defensive and offensive powers.
China is rapidly developing infrastructure in Tibet and they will swarm us like flies in the coming years.
