Explanation of disputed boundaries[edit]

India Pakistan China Disputed Areas Map.png
Kashmir map.svg
  • Boundary of Indian claim : The territory India claims is legally theirs, but the claim is disputed by China and Pakistan.
  • Line of Control/Line of Conflict : The defacto administrative boundary recognised by the international community. This UN ceasefire Line is considered as a temporary solution to an ongoing conflict since the departure of the British Raj.

Borders of disputed regions[edit]

The extent of the former territory of the British Indian Empire, seceeded by Republic of India depicted on this map may not be accepted by most countries as legal due to ongoing border disputes:

  • Minor areas of eastern Kashmir's Ladakh division, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand on the Chinese frontier are claimed by China. These areas are under Indian control.
  • A small area of Uttarakhand adjoining the Nepal border along the Sarda river is disputed between the two countries.

For a detailed map of all disputed regions in South Asia, see Image:India disputed areas map.svg

Internal borders[edit]

The borders of the state of Meghalaya, Assam and Arunachal Pradesh is shown as interpreted from the North-Eastern Areas (Reorganisation) Act, 1971, but has yet to be verified.
