107th Indian Science Congress

Kalapani Territory
•In the latest map, India included Kalapani into the Pithoragarh district of Uttarakhand [after revoking the special status of Kashmir on August 5]
•Nepal government says that Kalapani is an integral part of the country and that talks are still on between New Delhi and Kathmandu over this “unresolved” area.
•Nepal and India are planning to resolve the Kalapani border issue through dialogue.
Genesis of the dispute:
•Under the treaty of Sugauli signed between Nepal and the British East India Company in 1816, the Kali River was located as Nepal’s western boundary with India.
•It, however, made no mention of a ridgeline and subsequent maps of the areas drawn by British surveyors showed the source of the Kali river at different places.(This discrepancy has led to the boundary disputes between India and Nepal)
【Yaar ye British bhi na!😁!】
