Source of rumor that reincarnation of His Holiness Dalai Lama is born in Mongolia

Recently, Mongolian newspapers published stories which said next reincarnation of His Holiness Dalai Lama is born in one of the Gobi provinces of Mongolia and this  news is kept secret. 

However, Dalai Lama's office rejected rumor and said "it is not authentic and we wonder how it started". 

Legally, it is not possible for Mongolian state to accept reincarnation of high lamas in Mongolia. Pro-Communist, Mongolian People's Government banned appearance of high lamas and reincarnations of various Buddhist clergy in Mongolian territory since 1924 after death of 8th  Bogd Khaan, all powerful theocratic ruler of Mongolia.

Since then,this law has not revised. However, various minor reincarnations of Tibetan lamas are often being born in Mongolia after 1990s. 

We suspect source of this rumor can be traced to Mongolian buddhist lamas studying Dharmasala, India. Currently there are about 300 Mongolian lamas study in Tibetan monasteries and temples in north India. 

On Sept 23, High Tibetan lamas discussed about next reincarnation of His Holiness and issues surrounding it.

Please see below "Times of India" report on this conference.

Dalai Lama reincarnation to be discussed today

DHARAMSHALA: The 11th high-level conference, since 1963, of chief monks (Tibetan religious heads) began on Thursday at Mcleodganj. The Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama will preside over the meeting on the second day of the conference on Friday. Heads and representatives of four major traditions and sub-traditions of Tibetan Buddhism and ancient Bon tradition are taking part in this three-day religious conference.
This meeting assumes more significance as the Dalai Lama had told reporters last month in Europe that the September meeting of Tibetan religious heads will hold discussions on the issue of his reincarnation.
Reliable sources told TOI that the meeting, among the pre-decided topics that doesn't include the reincarnation of Dalai Lama, will discuss the reincarnation of the 14th Dalai Lama, an issue that dominated media headlines and became a serious topic of discussion within the Tibetan communities, especially after China introduced a new law banning Tibetan religious beings from reincarnating without government's approval.
