The World Health Organization (WHO) has now rectified the mistake after India’s displeasure over the wrong map. Following the government’s objection, the WHO has now placed a disclaimer over the wrong map of India.
Previously in WHO’s map of India, Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh were shown in a very different color as a different country.
In a written reply to the Rajya Sabha, Minister of State for External Affairs V Muralitharan stated that “the issue of misplaced map of India on the World Health Organization website was strongly raised at a high level with the WHO.
In response to this, the WHO called India’s Permanent Mission in Geneva and told that they have placed the disclaimer on the portal. “
