The Nepalese government intends to send its newly revised map to India, Google and the international community by mid-August, a minister said. The revised map includes the Indian territories of Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh and Kalapani.
“We will send the updated map including Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura to various United Nations agencies and the international community, including India. The process will be completed by the middle of this month,” said Padma Aryal, Minister of land management, cooperatives and poverty reduction says ANI.
The ministry asked the Measurement Department to print 4,000 copies of the updated version of the map of Nepal in English and send it to the international community.
The Measurement Department printed 25,000 copies of the latest version of the map, which were distributed nationwide. Provincial offices and all other public offices will receive copies for free while people can buy it for 50 Nepalese rupees.
The Nepalese government released on May 20 the revised political and administrative map incorporating Limpiyadhura, Lipulekh and Kalapani.
India said Nepal’s unilateral action was “not based on historical facts and evidence.”
India also said the move was against the bilateral agreement to resolve outstanding border issues through diplomatic dialogue and “such artificial expansion of territorial claims will not be accepted by India. “.
