    PERTH: Taking serious note of the travel advisories against it, India today raised the issue with Australia, asking it to withdraw issuance of such notices which have "disproportionate" language and were contrary to the current tourist trend.

    Minister of External Affairs S M Krishna, who is here to attend the CHOGM Foreign Ministers Meeting, held talks with his Australian counterpart Kevin Rudd and raised the issue in detail, official sources said.

    Krishna asked Rudd to withdraw issuance of travel advisory for tourists travelling to India.

    "The language in these advisory is rather disproportionate and contrary to the current trend of tourism to India," he told Rudd.

    Responding to Krishna, Rudd said such advisories were "routine" advice and "we do not have any information of any specific threat to share with India."

    According to official sources, Krishna is also expected to raise the issue with his other counterparts including Canada and New Zealand.

    In the wake of many countries, including US and Australia, issuing travel advisories to their citizens, New Delhi has taken a serious note of the issue, maintaining such notices do not reflect the reality and have adverse affect on the tourism to the country.

    I am not able to understand when on all festivals all these so called developed countries who are going to default on payments and going insolvent when they give advisory why India protest???

    Instead India too can on christmas and on New year can say these countries are now facing danger of terrorism so all Indians avoid journey there or postpone then see the Magic of Newtons third law But......... Our spineless officials and leaders dont have guts to speak in front of them as most have hidden there black money in one or other country
