Final dossier preparations for 2016 are coming down to the wire. 4 Nominations are struggling to submit complete dossiers.

Wild Ass Sanctuary, Little Rann of Kutch
Kangchendzonga National Park
Excavated Remains at Nalanda
Historic city of Ahmadabad

It is hard to say how reliable these reports are. Besides Nalanda these nominations were already planned or rumored for evaluation in 2016. Not to mention the LE CORBUSIER transnational dossier.

Aihole-Badami-Pattadakal [extension] (India)

Potential Additions to India's Tentative List (18)
- Ayodhya (India)
- Aurangabad (India)
- Bangalore Golf Club (India)
- Borra Caves (India)
- Burhanpur Water Management (India)
- Caves and Forts of Lonavala (India)
- Cyclopean Wall at Rajgir
- Diamond Triangle Lalitgiri, Udaygiri, Ratnagiri Buddhist Sites (India)
- Gandikota (India)
- Ganga River (India)
- Kadapa Temple (India)
- Kolkata (India)
- Khalsa College, Amritsar (India)
- Kondaveedu Fort (India)
- Latin Quarter of Panaji and Ribandar [Extension] (India)
- Maluti Temple Complex, Dumka (India)
- Prehistoric Rock Art Site at Edakkal (India)
- Qila Mubarak, Patiala (India)

India's tentative list is already numbered at 42, so it may be a useless exercise to tally (18) aspiring nominations, which may never see any formal application process. India's world heritage program is consistent with annual nominations, yet incredibly difficult to predict. For such a prolific and active state party, its surprising we know almost nothing about their nomination pipeline. India is not one of those countries that updates their tentative list once a decade. The last major update was in 2014, but additional nominations were added in 2015 and 2016. So, it would not be surprising if some of these listed nominations were submitted next week or in the coming years.

We have no less than 12 Indian TWHS that are in the "Sites Attempting Inscription Soon" Category

Aihole-Badami-Pattadakal [Extension] (India)
Apatani Cultural Landscape (India)
Bishnupur Terracotta Temple Complex (India)
Chilka Lake (India)
Delhi's Imperial Capital Cities (India)
Glorious Kakatiya Temples and Gateways (India)
Jaipur City, Rajasthan (India) - rumored for 2019
Lotus Temple, Delhi (India)
Majuli Island Cultural Landscape (India)
Moidams – the Mound-Burial system of the Ahom Dynasty (India)
Qutb Shahi Monuments of Hyderabad Golconda Fort, Qutb Shahi Tombs, Charminar (India)
Wild Ass Sanctuary, Little Rann of Kutch (India)

I assume the Indian government will be aggressive for 2019 to at least aim for 2 inscriptions before the updated operational guidelines come into effect limiting nominations to one annually.
