Dear All,
I would like to draw up your attention regarding the maps used in this site for "Running Live Status". Here in this site the maps are showing that "Jammu and Kashmir" and "Arunachal Pradesh" are not a part of India. This two states have been represented as a dotted lines not as others states which have been shown with a continiuos line.
So, I would request the site administrator/ moderator to look at this matter and change the maps as soon as possible.

The website appears to have access to the Google Maps and such Maps are accessed and displayed as they are on Google Map website. The changes need to be made at Google level and the website has seemingly no role to play in this except requesting for necessary correction to the Google.
Plz correct me for any error.

The Google maps used in the site is of US version. If it access google india maps, then there is no issue with the political boundaries. So, the site should access Google India maps instead of Google US version maps to avoid such divergence.

Thanks a lot for the discussion and resolution. The site now refers to the India version of Google maps, and so the national boundaries now should be politically correct.
