NCERT says Map showing Aksai Chin as 'disputed area' to be changed soon

The border between India and China, near Aksai Chin in the map is marked in dotted lines to indicate the dispute.  After various media report claiming that Aksai Chin is shown as part of China in a Class 12 political science textbook of National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), the council has recently clarified the while issue and said that the map was not of India, but of East and Southeast Asia.

The map showing Aksai Chin was marked in the same yellow as China and demarcates the area as 'Indian claim'.

The NCERT has decided to replace a map of East and South East Asia in a class 12 Political Science textbook. It also said that the map on page 56 of the textbook will be replaced with a map of Southeast Asia in the reprint edition

As reported by PTI, The decision was taken after several posts on social media highlighted the issue in the textbook titled 'Contemporary World Politics', which was published in 2007, and has not been revised since then, but only reprinted. However, NCERT in a reply said that the map was prepared by the University of Texas and comes with a disclaimer that the boundary representation is not necessarily authoritative

Aksai Chin has been under the unlawful occupation of China. Also, in the map, the border between India and China, near Aksai Chin, is marked with dotted lines, representing the 'dispute'. In the map, the Indian claim over the area is clearly mentioned.

NCERT also stated that later in chapter, the topic under the heading 'India - China Relations' refers to competing territorial claims in Arunachal Pradesh and Aksai Chin.

In 2012, India responded to China's revised passports that show disputed territory near their shared border as part of China by issuing visas to Chinese citizens that were embossed with New Delhi's own maps. Regarding the issue, the then External Affairs Minister Salman Khurshid said that the Chinese passport map showing India's Arunachal Pradesh and the Himalayan region of Aksai Chin as part of China is "unacceptable."
