Telangana becomes India’s 29th state, but its official map is yet to be prepared

HYDERABAD: Telangana formally became the country's 29th state on Monday but it would take a while before it is reflected in the official geographical and political map as the ministry of home affairs is yet to provide boundary details to Survey of India. 

"The MHA will have to provide us with final boundaries of the state. Then we will incorporate them and release the official map. Some of the district boundaries in Telangana will become state boundaries with other state," an official of the Survey of India said. 

"It may take some more time. We are yet to get details from the MHA. Based on that, our teams will incorporate boundaries up to village level," the official said.
