Acknowledging that there has been a spike in the number of infiltration attempts along the Line of Control this year, India on Sunday said it will see whether Pakistan is serious about ending ceasefire violations and draw "conclusions" about its "behaviour" if it failed to do so.

India also said it will give the Directors General of Military Operations (DGMOs) of the two countries a chance to end ceasefire violations before deciding its next strategy.

Against the backdrop of Pakistan media reports that the DGMOs of both countries will meet on Monday, top government sources said that there was no confirmation of such a meeting.

India's brusque observations also came in the backdrop of repeated ceasefire violations in recent months, especially on one occasion when Pakistani soldiers crossed the LoC and killed five Indian soldiers who were sleeping.

Asked if any progress has been seen on the talks between the DGMOs to end the recent spurt in ceasefire violations after Prime Ministers Manmohan Singh and Nawaz Sharif met in New York and decided on such a course, the sources said the DGMOs have been in touch.

"It is for them to find a way. They have been tasked to do a work. They have to sit and they will talk. Let's give them a chance," they said.

"We will see whether there is seriousness on the part of Pakistan to maintain ceasefire or not. If they can't do it, then we will draw our conclusions. Then we will see," the

sources said when asked about the repeated violations from across the LoC in recent times.

The sources said, "certainly there is an increase in the incursions this year than it was in last year."

"We will draw our conclusions about Pakistan's behaviour," they said.
