i will reply this once, an infrastructure is made by economy and workforce. now 40% indians are iliterate. and also china's economy is 3 times higher than india's. somehow u tend to ignore these facts.
India produced around 36 million tons of oil (A natural resource index) in 2003 and will face the resource problem soon.
China produced 160 million tons of oil in 2003 and imported more than 100 million tons in the same year.
Around 30% of Indian male cannot read newspaper and 50% of female cannot read. that means around 40% of Indians cannot read. See
Less than 16% of Chinese cannot read (most of are old person and they missed the education opportunity in the old time). See
China: Argriculture: 15% of GDP, Industry 52% of GDP, Manufacturing 35% of GDP, service 33% In 2001
India: Argriculture: 24% of GDP, Industry 27% of GDP, Manufacturing 16% of GDP, service 48% In 2001
These data comes from World Bank. You can conclude that China's industry size is at least 4 times of India's after a very simple calculation. You can see how little India's industry is.
China's industry increased 16.8% in 2003. See: http://www.cet.com.cn/20040220/SPECIAL/200402201.htm
India's increased about 8%.
Less than 28 million tons of iron and steel was used in 2003 in India (An important index of infrastructure construction. This is the total India produced in 2003, and India is a net iron & steel exporter)(This is even less than what China produced in 1978 when China began its reform)
China produced around 225 million tons of iron and steel and imported other 35 million tons in 2003 for the construction. China used more iron and steel than Us and Japs combined.
It was reported that China's iron and steel production reached 300 million tons in 2004.
these are the main factors influence a country's infrastructure. u can choose to deny, which is tend to be ur habit when it talks about india is not as successful as china, is it some personal bias that u look down on chinese? i cant really help u if u have bias since that is just some uneducated emotion and i wont reply to anymore of ur claims here on this thread, due to the fact its not even relevant.
it is a fact that india's infrstructure cannot repair its russia weaponry and also behind of china. sending money to russia for repairing shows this already. how simpler do u need to understand? and this will mean that in a war against china, india wouldnt be able to have maximum efficentcy for long because there would be plenty of weapons needed to repair if against a country like china. i mention this because raj mention about china in its first post.
i hope u can learn to take critism too
right back to the topic.

1971 Indo-Pak war..PLA did not try to threaten IA inspite of promises to Pakistan.
1986-87, there was another Sino-India standoff, inspite of making all the "teach a lesson" warning via the US diplomats, nothing was done.
PLAAF, is technologically inferior. Most PLAAF fighters are off shoots of Mig-21s.
PLAN does not have blue water capability.
PLA only has a edge over Indian army w.r.t missiles(G2G).

PLA won in 1962 because it had planned the invasion since 1959.
The victory for PLA in Arunachal sector can have many reasons, if you wish we could start a separate thread on it, as the subject will involve a lot of debating, and will not hijack this thread.

People, can we please not discuss the 1962 war in this thread? Not only is a 40 year old war in a completely different geostrategic enviroment completely irrelevant to the subject (modern day Indian military), it is a very divisive issue where neither Indian nor Chinese will agree upon.
I'd be happy to discuss it at some later point, but in this thread it is only a red herring.
Glad you can make it

no point posting the facts here, just go to china's army doctrine. u will see what the new chinese navy is like. there is often that the chinese nuclear sub always slip pass us detection in the pacific.
no, PLAAF fighters are retiring the Mig 21, and very quickly modernising its airforce in using Su series. and the J-10. and the chinese infrastructure can build more of these planes much faster than india if a war breaks out.
PLA has much better tanks than IA, not to mention more officers due to education level in china is much higher than in india. chinese troops are better equiped due to the economy of the country.
but i dun want to put something that is not relevant, if u want facts, just go to that thread.
