India to get new ‘dormitorio’ on its border with China

India is to get a new dormitory on its northern border, with the development of the first of two new dormitories set to be constructed at the border crossing between India and China, the government said on Tuesday.

The two new facilities will be set up at the Mangalore-Chandigarh port, where China has agreed to supply dredged materials to build a port for its shipping industry, said the Indian Home Ministry.

The new facilities are expected to be operational by the end of 2018.
