India's external affairs ministry condemned Nepal's political map-change, and there is no evidence of any land occupation in Bihar near the border.
The Nepal government has begun construction of a helipad at a disputed location on the Indo-Nepal border along West Champaran district of Bihar. Nepal released a new political map in May 2020 claiming Indian territories as its own, including Lipulekh, Kalapani, and Limpiyadhura. The new political map was drawn based on the Sugauli Treaty of 1816 signed between Nepal and then the British Indian government. Nepal President Bidhya Bhandari said that Limpiyadhura, Kalapani, and Lipulekh belong to Nepal, and that appropriate diplomatic measures would be adopted to resolve the existing issues with India. Nepal has started to deploy its armed police force for the first time in 15 border outposts along the Indo-Nepal border in Uttarakhand's Pithoragarh and adjacent areas. The Indian Ministry of External Affairs termed Nepal's new political map as an artificial enlargement of claims, not based on historical facts or evidence.
However, there are no credible sources to verify whether Nepal had occupied 7,100 acres of Indian territory in Bihar. The story about Nepal occupying about that much land in Bihar has been circulating online since 2018, and there is no credible evidence to substantiate it.
