Recently, Nepal has officially released country’s new map claiming three regions viz. Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpyidhura of Uttarakhand, India.
Kalapani has been a long pending border disputed region between India and Nepal.
Nepal claims that as per the Treaty of Sugauli 1816, signed between British East Indian Company and King of Nepal, river Kali is the Nepal’s boundary with India. It claims that the river to Kalapani’s west is main Kali and hence, these three regions are integral part of Nepal.
On the contrary, India claims that a ridgeline to the east of Kalapani is the main river and therefore, Kalapani and its contiguous regions are part of its territory.
Hence, (c) is the correct answer.
