People should not think they can get away with insulting the map of India or that there is no law.
The Map of India is protected under the law of the land, as a national symbol. The protective cover may not be as visible as with other national symbols like the Flag or the National Anthem, but it is no less stronger.
You are liable for criminal action in event the map is misrepresented, misused, or insulted in any manner.
Presently there is draft bill pending in Parliament that proposes a punishment of upto 7 years imprisonment and a fine upto Rs. 100 cr. This is as serious as it can get! Until this law is approved by Parliament, do not think anyone can insult the map, and get away. An amendment to the existing laws has provided for a punishment of 6 months imprisonment, at the minimum. Read the Gazette notification displayed here .
Survey of India
The Survey of India office has a compliant cell and they aggressively follow up any compliant of such criminal activity. Once they take cognisance of the crime, you had better be prepared to face the nation and provide appropriate response to the SoI, IBD, Ministry of Home Affairs, and Min of Information Technology.
