Question about India

When I traveled to India one year, I had to sign a customs form promising not to bring prohibited items, one of which was an inaccurate map of India. Any idea what that's about? I thought about this went I started looking into reprinting for myself a public domain book from 1970 which has a map of India.

EDIT: Here is one source

"Maps and literature where Indian external boundaries have been shown incorrectly, in view of Government of India"

A list like this is on a form they give you as you are flying in. If I had to guess, I would think this has something to do with Kashmir.
