The Punjab States Agency was a political office of the British Indian Empire. The agency was created in the 1930s, on the model of the Central India Agency and Rajputana Agency, and dealt with forty princely states in northwest India formerly dealt with by the British province of the Punjab. The Punjab Hill States Agency was created out of it in 1936.

After 1947, most of the states chose to accede to the Union of India, the rest to the Dominion of Pakistan.
