Hello everyone! I want to thank our former social studies teacher Mr. B**** N****** C***** for the maps of India marked by hand. I have attached a PDF that includes solved maps of India, regarding the location of the various rivers and water bodies in and near India; mountains, plains, passes, plateaus, and hills of India; soils of India; cities of India; minerals of India; direction of winds in India; and distribution of population in India.
Given that these maps were prepared for the 2013 ICSE Board Exams, I cannot guarantee that they are up-to-date or include all markings from the latest ICSE syllabus. I would, thus, recommend that you cross check the validity of these maps with your geography teachers and/or with the official CISCE resources mentioned below. Thank you, and I hope you find these maps useful in your board exam preparation!
Here’s a link to the PDF file for the above notes:

* NOTE as on January 4th, 2019: We were given the above maps for reference by our former Social Studies teacher, Mrs. P********* P***** in 2012. However, we just found out that these maps have been posted by Mr. Br Hector Pinto on his blog in 2011. As students frequently refer to these maps, we will keep the file available for use for all readers. However, we acknowledge full credit to Mr. Pinto for the maps available under “ICSE NOTES – Solved Maps of India (Digital Version).”
UPDATE as on Sep 29, 2018:
Go through the Analysis of Pupils’ Performance as published by the CISCE and available here to understand where students make mistakes while marking the map. It is a highly valuable resource and a must for every ICSE student of Class 10 to refer. It also very specifically mentions:
- which regions to shade for sparsely populated areas,
- how to precisely draw the standard meridian,
- how broad or narrow the coastal plains should be,
- how to shade places or mark places that are too small to be shaded,
- and more!
