India suspends LoC trade with Pakistan

India suspends LoC trade with Pakistan

Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has issued orders to suspend all cross-LoC trade with Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir with effect from April 19, 2019.

The Centre received reports that the routes were allegedly being used by elements in Pakistan to push weapons, narcotics and counterfeit currency into India. It has been revealed that the trade has changed its character to mostly third-party trade and products from other regions, including foreign countries, are finding their way through this route.

The trade is allowed through two trade facilitation centres located at Salamabad, Uri, District Baramulla and Chakkan-da-Bagh, District Poonch. The trade takes place four days a week. The trade is based on barter system and zero-duty basis.
