Explanation of disputed boundaries

  • Boundary of Indian claim : The extent upto which the Indian administration claims as rightfully theirs, but is not recognised by China and Pakistan.
  • Line of Control : The defacto boundary recognised by the international community, but not by India, China and Pakistan. This boundary is a temporary solution to the ongoing conflict.

Borders of disputed regions

The extent of Indian territory depicted on this map may not be accepted by some countries as legal due to ongoing border disputes:

  • The northern state of Jammu & Kashmir is claimed entirely by both India and Pakistan ( Azad Kashmir) and partly by China ( Aksai Chin). It is currently divided between all three countries. See also Line of Control and Line of Actual Control.
  • Siachen glacier (shown white) is an actively contested region between India and Pakistan. At present the region is in control of the Indian Army.
  • The north eastern state of Arunachal Pradesh is almost entirely claimed by China as part of its territory. The state is recognised as a part of India by every country except China. See also McMahon Line.

Borders of some minor disputed areas have been omitted for the sake of simplicity:

  • Minor areas of Jammu & Kashmir, 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.
