Nepal is set to present its revised map to the "international community", including India, the United Nations (UN) and even Google.

"We will be sending the updated map including Kalapani, Lipulekh and Limpiyadhura to various UN agencies and the international community including India. The process will be completed by the middle of this month," Padma Aryal, minister for land management, cooperatives and poverty alleviation told ANI.

The Nepalese ministry has asked the Department of Measurement to print 4,000 copies of the new map in English to send to the international community, ANI reported.

Copies of the map will be issued free of cost to provincial and all other public offices, while people can buy it at Nepali Rupees 50.

On June 13, the lower house of Nepal's Parliament approved a map that included disputed territories of Lipulekh, Kalapani and Limpiyadhura. The country had first introduced the new map in May.

India has said Nepal's "unilateral act is not based on historical facts and evidence". The Ministry of External Affairs also advised Nepal to avoid "artificial enlargement" of territorial claims.
