Crown colony?[edit]

Had India ever been a crown colony of the United Kingdom? As far as I know there was a separate India Office. The British Administration in India did not report to the Colonial Office. — Instantnood 21:30, 1 September 2006 (UTC)

Help please[edit]

I am very interested in colonial India. I am also doing a historical atlas of India. I would be very happy if I could get a lot of information on this topic. I have also contributed a map of India in 1761. User:thelivinglegend —Preceding signed but undated comment was added at 12:52, 16 September 2007 (UTC)

Re:Merger from European colonies in India[edit]

I guess European colonies in India can be merged into this article because all colonies in India were European. Please enlist your support/opposition below.--Victor D PARLE 20:18, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Colonisation of India[edit]

Why do we consider the begining of colonisation of India from the arrival of the Europeans.

Shouldn't we include the Islamic sultanates (persian / turkish / afghans) invasions also as colonisation ? After all the moghuls also colonised india, spread their religion, controlled every aspect of the Indian lives (economy, politics etc). How different is that from the British ? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Vidsin (talkcontribs) 07:57, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

Macedonians and Romans were not Europeans in the modern sense. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 182.237.187.113 (talk) 08:54, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

Copyright problem removed[edit]

One or more portions of this article duplicated other source(s). The material was copied from: http://www.chillibreeze.com/EnglishinIndia.asp. Archives confirm that the publication predates ours. The material was pasted all at once here; given the strong probability that other material also infringed, I have removed it entirely. Infringing material must not be restored, unless it is duly released under a license compatible with GFDL. (For more information, please see "using copyrighted works from others" if you are not the copyright holder of this material, or "donating copyrighted materials" if you are.) For legal reasons, we cannot accept copyrighted text or images borrowed from other web sites or printed material; such additions will be deleted. Contributors may use external websites as a source of information, but not as a source of sentences or phrases. Accordingly, the material may be rewritten, but only if it does not infringe on the copyright of the original or plagiarize from that source. Wikipedia takes copyright violations very seriously, and persistent violators will be blocked from editing. While we appreciate contributions, we must require all contributors to understand and comply with these policies.

Please do not restore other information from that edit without first taking steps to verify that it was not also infringement. If you are uncertain but would like to restore some of that text, you may wish to reword the material completely to avoid inadvertently infringing copyright. Of course, they should be placed within the body of the article rather than appended, as it was, to the end, and inline references would be helpful for verifying that the material is accurate.

Thank you. --Moonriddengirl (talk) 16:23, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

British section is flawed copy and paste effort[edit]

Regarding the British section, I notice that some new text was added, and then in this edit, then that text was replaced by text take from this section and this section.

Now one problem with this is that it was just copied and pasted from the article so that links and images didn't get copied across correctly. I guess I'll do a better copy now.

Another problem is that duplication of content is problematic as the multiple copies of the text should be kept in sync. ICouldBeWrong (talk) 11:42, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Links (references) and images now work in British section. Problem of duplicated content remains outstanding. ICouldBeWrong (talk) 12:13, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Colonial India and such topics[edit]

I believe there has been some mistake in the picture used as the colonial India everywhere in wikipedia. British India was divided into Pakistan, India and Bangladesh, but why is the picture highlighting Nepal as part of colonial India or British India? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Arjunpokharel10 (talkcontribs) 19:57, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
