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

It is currently divided between all three countries since 1972. See also Line of Control and Line of Actual Control.

  • The north eastern territory of Arunachal Pradesh is almost entirely claimed by China as part of its Tibetan territory.
