Harsimran Kaur

Abstract


Nepal is a landlocked country flanked by India on three sides -east, south and west, with open borders on all sides. Due to their geographical proximity, the national interests of both nations overlap to a large extent. As neighbours, India and Nepal share a long alliance of mutual trust and cooperation, along with deep links between their politics and culture. Due to open borders between the countries people have enjoyed free movement across each other’s territories. Despite the historical peaceful relations between India and Nepal, there exist many conflicts between the nations. The major area conflicts of Indo-Nepal have had blockade, smuggling, terrorism, political and economic issues cross border terrorism and more over an open border etc. India has voiced concerns about instances of illegal trading, pumping of Fake Indian Currency Notes (FCIN) and misuse of trade transit facilities by non-state actors in Nepal.
