Having used other threads to help me find maps, I thought it might be useful to others to have this info.

Took me 2 days of lots of walking, rickshaw and asking around.

The 'Survey of India' office is no longer on JAnpath. It's been knocked down for a new building to built. The new office is way across town. Cost me 80 rps (i think) to get there.

I showed the driver a note, which he got someone to translate for him.

on the note

'survey of india
shop no 151
agust Kraus Bhewan
Bhikaje cerma Place
Near INA/RK Pwaum
Near Hayat Hotel'

The spelling will be wrong here because the note was writen for me by a very helpful lady at the cotage emporium on Janpath (would recomend going there to get general info - amazingly helpful), and her handwriting is a little hard for me to read.

Once dropped off before the Hayatt Hotel i asked around to find agust krauti Bhewan, then again to find shop.

The shop was clearly still sorting all the maps out. noty masive place, but stacked full of topo maps.

unfortunatly for me they stock none for kashmir. So useless visit. but For all other states, except possibly for other national border areas, had good stock.

Hopeflly this post will save others the rediculoous mission I went through to find it.
