New Delhi, Oct 1: China has shocked India again with its new visa policy for Kashmirs.

China government has begun issuing separate visas to Indian passport holders from Jammu Kashmir.

"It is our considered view and position that there should be no discrimination against visa applicants of Indian nationality on grounds of domicile or ethnicity," external affairs ministry spokesperson Vishnu Prakash said here.

"We have conveyed our well-justified concern to the Chinese government in this regard," he said.

He was reacting to the new practice adopted by the Chinese embassy in New Delhi, to issue visas to Indian passport holders from Jammu Kashmir on a separate sheet of paper rather than stamping them in their passports, which is the norm with other Indian citizens.
