Text

After the publication of the paper [1] we have noticed that we have mistyped haplogroup M2 defining mutation in three places in the paper (listed below). It should be 447G instead of 477G.

1. Background: paragraph 2, line 8.

2. The package of the most ancient mtDNA haplogroups in India: paragraph 1, line 3.

3. Table 3: Row 1

We regret any inconvenience that this inaccuracy might have caused. We wish to thank Dr. Gyaneshwer Chaubey for bringing this matter to our attention.
