The area figures of states and union territories do not add up to area of India because:

  • The shortfall of 7 km2. area of Madhya Pradesh and 3 km2. area of Chhattisgarh is yet to be resolved by the Survey of India.[3]
  • Disputed area of 13 km2. between Puducherry and Andhra Pradesh is neither included in Puducherry nor in Andhra Pradesh.[3]
  • Area figures includes the area under occupation by Pakistan and China. The area includes 78,114 /13,297+72,971=86,268 km2. of disputed area under occupation of Pakistan, 5,180 km2. of disputed area handed over by Pakistan to China and 37,555 km2. of disputed area under occupation of China.[3]
