  4. Latitudinal Extent of India: between latitudes 84'N and 37%"N Longitudinal Extent of India: between longitudes 68 7'E and 97 25'E. India lies in eastern hemisphere (GMT + 5:30 Hours) and Northern hemisphere. The Tropic of Cancer (23 30'N) divides the country into almost two equal parts. Equator-. . India has a land boundary of about 15,200 km and the total length of the coast line of the mainland includin Andaman and Nicobar and Lakshadweep is 7,516.6 km. India has coastline of 6,100 km in the mainland Tropic of Capricorn 20 00E Antarctic Circle INDIAN GEOGRAPHY by Rushikesh Dudhat

  5. If you look at the latitudinal and longitudinal extent of India, they are roughly about 30 degrees, whereas the actual distance measured from north to south extremity is 3,214 km, and that from east to west is only 2,933 km. What is the reason for this difference? . This is because of difference between the nature of latitude and longitude. Latitudes are equidistant while the distance between longitudes goes on decreasing as we move from equator towards poles. The eastern and western most states of India are ARUNACHAL PRADESH and GUJRAT having a time gap of 2 Hours (30 degree difference in longitudes. 1 degree = 4 minutes; 15 degrees = 60 minutes or 1 hour) Latitude .Which is eastern most and western most capital of India?
