India releases new map with Jammu, Kashmir, Ladakh

India has gotten a new map. The Centre has notified geographical boundaries of newly carved Union Territories (UTs) of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh. The Union Territory of Ladakh is spread in more area on the new Indian map while Jammu and Kashmir is a much smaller territory. The government on Saturday released the maps of newly created Union Territories of Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh and the map of India depicting these UTs. On the recommendation of the Parliament, the President Ram Nath Kovind effectively dismantled Article 370 of the Indian Constitution and gave assent to the Jammu and Kashmir Reorganisation Act, 2019. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and supervision of Union Home Minister Amit Shah, the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir has been reorganised as the new Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and the new Union Territory of Ladakh on October 31, 2019, a statement of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) said. Pakistan rejects the political maps of India “displaying the Jammu and Kashmir region and seeking to depict parts of Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir within the territorial jurisdiction of India”, said a statement issued by the Foreign Office on Sunday.

A day earlier, the Indian Ministry of Home Affairs issued a notification detailing the boundaries of the so called union territories of occupied Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh, and also issued a new political map of India. The new map now shows areas under AJK inside Ladakh, and not in Jammu and Kashmir as depicted earlier, reported Scroll.in on Saturday. The move came after India on August 5, amid a harsh security and communication lockdown, revoked the special status of occupied Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Indian constitution. On October 31, Indian authorities formally revoked the restive area’s constitutional autonomy and split it into two federal territories: one Jammu and Kashmir, and the other the Buddhist-dominated high altitude region of Ladakh. The statement by the Foreign Office on Sunday said the maps issued by India on November 2 were “incorrect, legally untenable, void and in complete violation of the relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions”. “Pakistan rejects these political maps, which are incompatible with the United Nations’ maps,” it added.
