  • Apart from a couple of (resolved) issues with images, the chief obstacle to GA seems to be the prose and I can help with that. Miniapolis 23:47, 14 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Please click on "External links" in the GA toolbox on this page, and repair the problematic links (see WP:DEADREF). Miniapolis 00:22, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
  • The "City of Prime Ministers" claim is supported by a dead link and a source which does not support the claim. Unless you can find a RS for this, the nickname should be removed. Miniapolis 23:52, 15 August 2014 (UTC)
Repaired all the dead links. Added working reference to both nicknames. As far as prose is concern, please assist. I'm very bad in it.--25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  07:44, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
The prose isn't too bad, but I'm giving it a once-over to bring it up to GA quality. That was how I discovered the "City of PMs" sourcing problem; the sentence was unclear and didn't seem to belong in History, and I tried to check the sources to clarify. Miniapolis 14:35, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Article got failed once because I wasn't able to cover issues raised by reviewer, within given time. But this time I'm very conscious and taking everything very seriously.Face-smile.svg--25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  08:01, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
  • In the Climate section, there are contradicting average precipitation (rainfall) totals for August. The driest-month-is-April part of the sentence is unclear; is the 5 mm figure a daily average, or the total for the month? Miniapolis 14:01, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Have added correct figure for precipitation (333mm) for the month of August. Meanwhile removed "The driest and wettest month is..." sentence, because it was mentioned already (I did not notice before).--25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  15:15, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Except for three sentences, the Biodiversity section deals not with Allahabad but with UP or India as a whole; it should probably be trimmed or tweaked to reflect the city. While the peacock image is very nice, the file page doesn't mention any connection with Allahabad. Miniapolis 17:29, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Made significant changes. As far as images is concern there's no other file available. I tried to search but it feels like City hardly has any zoo or zoological garden. The bird found in city, so thought it would be good idea to put it. Let me know if you have some idea regarding this.
  • In Demographics, when I tried to reconcile the graph and the text I saw that the text cites 2011 census data matching the All India Radio source for the graph (which uses 2001 data). The religion figures should be the most recent, accurate data and the bar graph with 2001 data is confusing. Miniapolis 19:23, 18 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Section contains 2011 (latest census) data. Corrected religion figures. Replaced district data with Allahabad metropolitan data.--25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  18:12, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Administrative divisions is confusing. Some text refers to the city (therefore belonging in the article), other text to the district (and belongs in Allahabad district rather than here) and other text to the division. The beginning of the section refers in passing to eight tehsils (although one source cites only seven tehsils in the district), and at the end there's a list of eight place names which seem to be towns outside the city. Miniapolis 16:08, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Actually, I have used Administrative divisions just to increase length of the Civic administration section. Basically city itself comes under divisions. Please suggest whether to keep it or not.--25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  16:32, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
The parts of "Administrative divisions" relevant to the city (if there are any) can be merged into "Civic administration". How (if at all) is the city itself divided? The same issue exists in Economy; too much text is about the district, not the city. Miniapolis 16:43, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
It's divided into two parts Allahabad district and Allahabad metropolitan. Since corporate's manufacturing units are situated in Phulpur or Naini but their headquarters are in city. That's the reason I have mentioned it. I maybe sound so confusing.--25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  18:09, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
  • Section hatnotes (such as {{See also|Neighborhoods in Allahabad}}) belong at the top of a section, not the bottom. Miniapolis 17:28, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done--25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  18:09, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
  • In Culture, the "literary capital of UP" claim needs a source. Miniapolis 20:37, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done Ref #93.--25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  07:41, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
I have merge Tourism (which contains only 2-3 sentences) with Culture section.--25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  17:58, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for taking over the review.--25 CENTS VICTORIOUS  07:11, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
