New Delhi: Incidents arising out of boundary dispute with China can be avoided if both the countries have a common perception about the Line of Actual Control (LAC), the government on Wednesday said.

"On account of differences in the perception of the LAC, situations have arisen on the ground that could have been avoided if we had a common perception of the LAC," Minister of State for External Affairs Preneet Kaur told the Lok Sabha.

She was responding to a question on whether intrusion by China in India territory has been increasing constantly.

Kaur said India regularly takes up any transgression along the LAC with the Chinese side through established mechanism, including diplomatic channels.

"Government keeps a constant watch on all developments having a bearing on India's security and takes all necessary measures to safeguard it," she said.

On whether there was any undeclared restriction on media with regard to reporting about activities in the border region, she said there was no such specific restrictions.
