Border dispute between Nepal and India

There is an open border of 1800 kilometers between Nepal and India. After the battles between the East India Company and the Nepalese Gorkhas, the Sugauli Border Treaty was signed between the two in 1816. But for some time there is a dispute going on regarding the western northern border point of Nepal. Mahakali river is considered as the western boundary. Nepal claims that the western border is Kalapani, which was in Nepal after 1816. It has been under Indian occupation since the India-China war in the 1960s. Along with this, Nepal also raised controversy regarding Limpiyadhura and Lipulekh areas. Because of this area adjoining China, it is a trijunction point, which has its own special strategic importance. During the time of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, before being removed from power, Nepal’s first Prime Minister Mohan Shamsher Rana had signed a friendship treaty with India. This treaty signed on 31 July 1950 is signed by Mohan Shamsher and Indian Ambassador Chandeshwar Prasad Narayan. In Nepal it is believed that the ‘protocol’ of the signatories is not correct. To save power, the Ranas made a treaty with India, which weakened Nepal’s sovereign authority.
