The bill, which is up for pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion, was pub­lished on the In­dian home min­istry’s web­site on Wed­nes­day and lists penal­ties, in­clud­ing a pri­son term of up to seven years and a fine of 1 bil­lion In­dian ru­pees. New Delhi has al­ready im­posed tight re­stric­tions on maps but if it be­comes law, the bill would im­pose spe­cific penal­ties for the first time, in­clud­ing for on­line use. The new bill also states that a li­cence will be needed to “ac­quire, dis­sem­i­nate, pub­lish or dis­trib­ute” maps.
