India to lift ban on Pakistani channels?
India has assured Pakistan that it will consider a proposal to lift the ban on Pakistani television channels in the country. The assurance came after Pakistani foreign secretary Jalil Abbas Jilani's strong pitch last week proposing that India allow transmission of not just Pakistan government (PTV) but also private channels, both news and non-news.

The two sides are expected to further hasten the groundwork for Krishna's visit as Pakistan's high commissioner-designate Salman Bashir finally presented his credentials before President Pratibha Patil and assumed full charge after weeks of waiting. As a former foreign secretary, Bashir was instrumental in bringing ties back on track after the hiatus caused by 26/11 attacks.
