The two govts need to lay down a clear road map for formalizing LoC trade and bringing it within the ambit of SAFTA
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Jammu and Kashmir on 4 July is expected to not only give direction to the security-related issues but also give an impetus to trade across the line of control (LoC). This is likely to come following the recent visit of officials from the Union ministry of home affairs, who assessed the cross-LoC impediments and have recommended measures such as provision of international subscriber dialling (ISD) facility for government officials and the trading community, expansion of the list of tradable items from the existing 21 items, opening banking facilities on both sides of the border, increasing the number of weekly trading days and installation of full body truck scanners.
