Fantastic! Since you're using the older spellings of the cities (like Bombay and Calcutta), so maybe change Shimla to Simla. Also, Lahore, one of the largest cities in the undivided Punjab, is missing.

Lastly, as far as I know, Sri Lanka (or Ceylon) was never a part of British India.

Thank you! You are correct that Sri Lanka was not part of the British Raj, I only chose to include all British possessions in South Asia.

I've heard Simla before too, although I noticed that the 'sh' sound in Hindi can sound like an 's' sound at times so it may be a minor change. I will consider these!

Simply incredible map! I suggest that you could create a quiz on the presidencies, provinces, and princely states of India using this map.
