In a written reply to the Rajya Sabha on Wednesday, Antony said that there were 93 ceasefire violations along the LoC by Pakistan in 2012.

"All violations of ceasefire are taken up with the Pakistan military authorities at the appropriate level through established mechanism of hotline messages, flag meetings as well as weekly talks between the DGMOs (Director Generals of Military Operations) of India and Pakistan," he said.

Antony said there has been significant reduction in the incidents of ceasefire violations following telephonic talks between the DGMOs on October 25 and 29 in 2013.
