原文标题：China keeps India out of visa-free transit policy
BEIJING: From the new year, travellers to China from 45 countries can now benefit from a 72-hour visafree stay policy in Beijing and Shanghai. The move is aimed at attracting more transit visitors to shop in Chinese markets.
The free visa policy is mostly extended to United States, Japan and European countries and not applicable to China's immediate neighbours like India, Pakistan or any South Asian countries.
Tourists holding third country visas and plane tickets can now apply for a transit without visa at Beijing's international airport.
Foreign visitors are not permitted to leave Beijing to other Chinese cities during the 72 hours, and have to depart from the capital city.
The 45 countries were listed in accordance with the numbers of inbound overnight visitors in Beijing from 2009 to 2011.
The same policy also took effect in Shanghai where visitors can submit applications at Pudong and Hongqiao airports.
Beijing airport had 7.6 million inbound and outbound foreign passengers during the first nine months in 2012 out of which over 5.21 lakhs were transit passengers.

I see China has some animosity towards India. Perhaps India needs a stronger relationship with Uncle Sam? Uncle Sam has the expertise to help India defeat China should the Chinese cross the mountains to do harm to your blessed country. Come to Uncle Sam India. Your Uncle Sam cares for you.

Why is India not a permanent member. How could this be? The fat man in Beijing and the other one in Moscow both block this from happening. Are either friends? No. Both would eat India tomorrow.

India can be understood, but why Pak? Pak has donated Indian land to China and still facing ill treatment from China what an irony!

Chinese are doing India a favour-why waste time buying cheap shimmering shiny fake goods-junk that gets piled up as house hold junk and why does India need a transit visa via China if you going to Europe or USA or Africa.China needs India to sell its junk and India can also implement its no transit visa for China. Discomfort for one is also discomfort for the other
