Narender Singh Yadav and Seema Rani Goswami's climb was certified by the tourism department at the time.

The action against them came when they failed to produce any evidence after Mr Yadav was nominated for an award.

Mr Yadav and Ms Goswami are yet to comment on Wednesday's announcement.

Reaching the top of the 8,848.86m (29,032 ft) mountain is considered to be a shining feat for mountaineers around the globe.

When Mr Yadav was listed for the prestigious Tenzing Norgay Adventure Award last year, the pairs' claims were queried by other climbers.

A Nepal tourism ministry official told AFP that during their investigations with other climbers, they found that the two "never reached the summit" and had failed to produce any reliable pictures of the summit and other evidence.

"In our investigation, we found that they had submitted fake documents [including photographs]. Based on the documents and the conversation with the officials concerned, including sherpas [expert Nepalese mountaineers], we reached this conclusion," an official from Nepal's tourism and culture Ministry told The Indian Express newspaper.

Mr Yadav, Ms Goswami and team leader Naba Kumar Phukon have been placed under a six-year ban - starting retrospectively in 2016. Their Everest summit certification has also been revoked, AFP reported.

Dinesh and Tarakeshwari Rathod said they had successfully reached the summit in 2016, but Maharashtra police said the couple had "morphed photographs" to show a successful ascent.

Nepal's tourism department had initially certified their ascent but rescinded that decision after an investigation.
