India on an indexed, double-sided map, printed on waterproof and tear-resistant plastic paper, with a street plan of central New Delhi, enlargements for greater Mumbai and Kolkata and a separate index for each side of the map.
The map divides India north/south, with Assam and the north-eastern states shown as an inset, and presents the country’s road and rail networks. Local airports are marked. Internal administrative boundaries are shown with names of states given also in Hindi. Given the density of local roads shown on the map, perhaps not as many small town and villages are marked as one would expect.
Symbols highlight numerous places of interest, including the country’s historical and architectural treasures, temples and other religious sites, national parks and game reserves, etc. Larger cities are annotated with lists of their main sights. The map has latitude and longitude lines at intervals of 2º and a separate index of localities for each side.
Also provided is a street plan of central New Delhi around the Connaught Place, annotated with hotels, restaurants, shops, banks, embassies, governmental offices, etc. Two more insets show the areas of greater Mumbai and Kolkata (Calcutta) with main roads and rail connections.
