How much does it cost on an average to employ such PMC's ??

How feasible it is if Government decides to employ PMC's in POK to counter Pakis active support to Kashmir insurgency?

Its not feasible as the mercenearies have a method and behavior to keep their "job" intact..that means the war never gets over.

I read somwhere, that IA employed British mercenaries as pilots to provide recon and support the ground troops in operations against LTTE, in Sri Lanka.
Any good knowledge on this piece of history?

PMCs are by nature, mere infantry. Deploying them in PoK is useless because they'll get killed faster than any hope of GDP growth in Pakistan.
They're good for advising armies who don't know how to even hold a weapon, rear security and COIN ops.

They're more police, less military.
