Infiltration of militants across the Line of Control was 'looking down', Defence Minister George Fernandes said on Tuesday.

"I have always said that infiltration has its ups and downs. At the moment, it is looking down and that does not mean tomorrow it may not go up," Fernandes told reporters in Bangalore.

Fernandes, commenting on the fresh peace initiatives, said confidence-building measures with Pakistan were being undertaken but a timeframe cannot be set for restoring normalcy. "The road map is being done now and it (restoration of normalcy) will take time. Nobody can fix a time for it," Fernandes said.
