Changing states: An animated political map of the Republic of India
From 1951 to now, six decades of the unending reorganisation of the map of Indian states and Union Territories in 31.5 seconds.

A look at the political map of India over the last 65 years would give an appearance of it being in a constant state of flux. It isn't only that the state boundaries have been redrawn over and over again but India's international borders have also extended by a bit (Goa, Sikkim, Pondicherry).This animated GIF map of the changing face of the political map of the country shows how India's innards have transmogrified. From hundreds of princely states and 17 provinces before partition, to 14 states and 6 Union Territories following the Reorganisation of States in 1956 to the proposed 29 states and 7 union territories if and when Telangana is granted statehood.From 1951 to now, six decades of the unending reorganisation of the map of Indian states and Union Territories in 31.5 seconds.
