India and Nepal share a unique relationship of friendship characterized by geographical contiguity, extensive socio-institutional relationships, along with it the common bond of a shared religion, common civilizational heritage, ethnic similarities and socio-cultural affinities have a great influence on bilateral relations. The ethnic similarity has been a cementing factor in bilateral relations, but post-2015 this is becoming a major irritant in relations. It is in this context that the study explores the Madhesi factor in India-Nepal relations and its impact on bilateral relations.
