Frequently asked:
What is the difference between the International Border and LOC between Indian and Pakistan?
»The India-Pakistan international border is the internationally recognized boundary that separates the provinces of Pakistan from the states of India.
»It is based upon the Radcliffe Line, which was an imaginary line to divide the Punjab, recommended by a committee chaired by the English barrister Sir Cyril Radcliffe, continuing to divide Gujarat from Sindh, and Kashmir from the North West Frontier Provinces of Pakistan.
»The Line of Control (LoC), is the de facto border established after conflict, which means it is not internationally deemed as a legitimate boundary.
»The LoC is the result of the solidification of fronts after the ceasefire in the Kashmir war of 1947, when raiders backed by Pakistan entered the Kashmir valley, repelled by Indian forces.
