Minister for Land Management Padma Aryal has said the new map including Kalapani, Lipu Lekh and Limpiyadhura will soon be published.
"We are preparing to issue the new map after passing the updated political and administrative map including Kalapani, Lipu Lekh and Limpiyadhura," Minister Aryal told Setopati. "I urge everyone to exercise patience and not post wrong maps on the social media until the new map is published."
She said the government will look to resolve the border dispute through diplomatic channel after issuing the map.
The government is also preparing to amend the schedule of the Constitution that does not include the territory including Limpiyadhura. "We will have to amend the Constitution and change the coat of arms," she added.
The territorial area of Nepal will also rise by 335 square kilometers with inclusion of the territory up to Limpyadhura, a ministry source revealed.
The government on Monday passed a new map including Kalapani, Lipu Lekh and Limpiyadhura.
The Cabinet meeting at Baluwatar Monday evening took the decision to that regard. Minister for Land Management Padma Aryal had presented the map to the Cabinet.
The government in its policy and programs presented to the House on Friday had pledged to issue a new map including Limpiyadhura.
Inauguration of the Indian road via Lipu Lekh on April 8 has been widely criticized by the ruling and opposition parties alike.
The Foreign Ministry has already expressed regret over the unilateral construction and urged India to refrain from carrying out any activity inside the territory of Nepal. It then summoned the Indian Ambassador to Nepal Vinay Mohan Kwatra and handed a diplomatic note conveying Nepal's position on the issue.
Nepal has consistently maintained that as per the Sugauli Treaty (1816), all the territories east of Kali (Mahakali) River, including Limpiyadhura, Kalapani and Lipu Lekh, belong to Nepal.
Nepal had also expressed its disagreement in 2015 through separate diplomatic notes addressed to the governments of both India and China when the two sides agreed to include Lipu Lekh Pass as a bilateral trade route without Nepal’s consent in the Joint Statement issued on 15 May 2015 during the official visit of the Prime Minister of India to China.
