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

- Minor areas of eastern Kashmir's Ladakh division, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarakhand on the Chinese frontier are claimed by China. These areas are under Indian control.

- This is not the updated map of 2002. It is the one that was prepared by Indian Standard Code:1893 in 1970. In the new map there is no Zone I at all.
- Pondicherry is now Puducherry
- The capital of the Union Territory of Daman and Diu is at Daman and not Diu.
- The capital of Assam is Dispur and not Guwahati
The Romanization/pinyin of Tibet is not Xijang, it is Xizang.(fixed)
- National Highway 1C should be National Highway 1B. Please check here en:National Highway 1 (India). You will find the highway at 72 Deg N / 32 Deg W near Jammu City in the state of Jammu and Kashmir. National Highway 1B starts just above Jammu City and goes towards Vaishno Devi. Please refer here for help.
- Missing new districts (I believe 8 in Indian-administered J&K, 2 in AJK and a quite different division of Gilgit-Baltistan).
- Image:India population density map en.svg: There is an error saying the SVG source is invalid.
- The symbols used are large, making it hard to see the population density near capital cities.
- Is the large red patch in the Lakshadweep Islands intentional?
- Two New Districts named Mewat and Palwal in Haryana are missing.
- India roadway map.svg: The capital of Mizoram is spelt incorrectly.
- Why only 14 districts are shown in Jammu & Kashmir map instead of 22?
- In File:Assam locator map.svg the new 3 districts are not included.
