Abstract
    Artificial island construction is a phenomenon that is seen on a rising scale in modern times. This paper evaluates the reasons for the construction of artificial islands along with stating the various dimensions of the impact they pose including economic, geopolitical, strategic and maritime. The topic is of great importance in the present-day international relations since to a great extent they affect the political relations among countries and even determine the development of a country itself. A few examples of artificial islands with wide features constructed for various purposes and India’s dream for artificial islands are also included in this paper.
