"Some students choose to join 3 years diploma courses offered by Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs)" -- This is an opinion, not a fact. Choices for students aren't part of an encyclopedia article. Please make sure you change this.

For XLRI-J - 'It's PMIR programme is regarded best in the entire Asia-Pacific region' -- There are no cited references to this statement.

[["many students, after completing schooling in the state, move away to places like New Delhi, Karnataka and several other locations for higher technical and non-technical studies."]] -- This is again, an opinion. Removed. If there are statistics which offer concrete examples of population migration, feel free to put them in.

As the institutions of higher studies fall short of state's requirement [citation needed], many students, after completing schooling in the state, move away to places like New Delhi, Karnataka and several other locations for higher technical and non-technical studies. -- Citations? NPOV? Moved to talk page.

"''Since their uprising in 1967, 6,000 people have been killed in the insurgency and counter-insurgency operations by the Indian Army, and its paramilitary groups such as the 'Salwa JudumItalic text'". Salwa Judum is not a paramilitary troops of the Indian Army. It is a State-sponsored armed anti-naxal group(which act has been condemned by the Supreme Court of India), that too of Chhattisgarh! So i don't think it is relevant to mention it here. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gopalakrishnan 85 (talkcontribs) 20:58, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

Note to Author : Please remove the NPOV statements and clean up. --vIkSiT 17:41, 16 May 2006 (UTC)

  • hello everyone ... I am trying to expand Jharkhand. I solocit suggestions. I request all persons interested in this project to contribute. I also thanks all for suggestions already received (in this connection / in connection with my work on wikipedia) on my user page.

  • Recently an editor has added some external links. I would request him/her and other editors to please comment on the validity of these links in the article. In case, appropriate comments do not come, I think removing these links to talk page would be ok? correct? Thanks. --Bhadani 14:58, 25 August 2005 (UTC)
I agree that there is not much to recommend many of the links at the External Links section. I removed one today. Perhaps more may be removed. Priyatu 13:21, 31 March 2006 (UTC)


There was a wikify template for the Jharkhand article. I have made some formatting changes. Perhaps the wikify template may be removed now. Please comment if the template may be removed. Priyatu 13:22, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Uselss info[edit]

Severtal useless info like names of schools have been added. Please understand what type of work we have to do here. Thanks. --Bhadani 13:31, 27 June 2006 (UTC)

Schools in Jharkhand[edit]

I feel the names of schools in this article are not necessary. They may be best included in their respective city pages. As this article pertains to the entire state of Jharkhand, those info relevant to the State in toto would be fine. Any comment? --VMO 14:50, 9 August 2006 (UTC)

Yes I do agree with Swamijee. I have raised similar issue several times relating to Ranchi and some other pages. --Bhadani 15:01, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
I shall await some more comments. If nothing comes forward, I plan to delete the Schools List. VMO 17:27, 9 August 2006 (UTC)
I have waited for 11 days. No comments received in the meantime. Hence, I have deleted the List of Schools. Any school name should obviously find place in the respective city or town page. I request the editors not to merely insert the name of the school; instead they may provide a brief write-up about the school so that the school name could properly be wikified also. Developing the school page can be done later, VMO 12:46, 21 August 2006 (UTC)
Yes, you are right. Perhaps many editors forget the real purpose of the page and they do not care to see the tags at the top, and other pages like Goa to learn about adding contents here. --Bhadani 16:30, 21 August 2006 (UTC)


Jharkhand's government website has it spelled as झारखकण्ड in their logo instead of झारखंड that we have in the article here. I reallize it's almost 6 of one and half a dozen of the other, but it's still better to go with how the state itself spells it unless there is good reason not to. Any objections to changing it? - Taxman Talk 19:02, 12 September 2006 (UTC)

Hi Taxman. The state government website spells it not as झारखकण्ड (such a spelling shall arise only if you are pronouncing the name taking into account the English spelling for a Hindi speaking state). In fact, the government website spells it as झारखण्ड, and the spelling as given in the article (झारखंड) is also a correct spelling [1] as Devnagri script supports both. However, झारखण्ड is better one. I am talking of my own state and of my own mother toungue. Several documents of the Government of Jharkhand carry both the spellings, and many other incorrect versions too! We may accept the spelling as indicated in the state governemnt website. I did not tax you, I presume! --Bhadani 19:21, 12 September 2006 (UTC)
Oh, sorry, yes I just made a typo when I was typing it in above with an extra क. Not a good idea when you're trying to discuss the differences in spelling. :) And not you with the tax jokes too; I'll sick her after you if you don't stop! Really though, no connection, honest. - Taxman Talk 21:55, 12 September 2006 (UTC)


About 600 students join IIT and about same no: of student join medical from Jharkhand per year. Any source? 13:09, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

I think there is no source except (may be) claim in the advertisements issued by the coaching institutes preaprign students for admission in these institutes, and they may not be exact sources. However, number may be high. --Bhadani 23:48, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Maps and Pics Required[edit]

If we could get some free (legally) maps and pictures, of Jharkhand. They could help to improve the article.

urgency of compare[edit]

This is only for the test. shimla I am sorry, but it's urgent.


I will remove the word 'primitive' from the demographics should be remembered that when the British invaded India, it was Indians in general who were the superstitious and uncivilised.Domsta333 07:53, 6 November 2007 (UTC)

Roll back[edit]

I have rolled back the latest deletion of contact by an anonymous: [2]. I think the complete deletion of large volume of content was not justified though the same requires references and probably removal of certain information for which citations may not be available or which may not be exactly correct. --Bhadani (talk) 15:49, 3 February 2008 (UTC)

WP:INDIA Banner/Jharkhand workgroup Addition[edit]

{{WP India}} with Jharkhand workgroup parameters was added to this article talk page because the article falls under Category:Jharkhand or one of its subcategories. Should you feel this addition is inappropriate , please undo my changes and update/remove the relavent categories to the article -- TinuCherian (Wanna Talk?) - 10:29, 20 June 2008 (UTC)


We need something more appropriate than just the caste divisions. What ethnic groups inhabit the state? --Maurice45 (talk) 15:34, 16 February 2009 (UTC)

forest industry[edit]

I am surprised there is no section about this under the economy or other section. It would be good to add something if anyone has some knowledge about it.Vontrotta (talk) 23:22, 22 June 2009 (UTC)


Where did all this come from? I'd be willing to do some editing and footnoting if someone can point to source material. Vontrotta (talk) 23:28, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

General Comments[edit]

Dear Wiki-users,

I will be doing some clean-up and additions to make the page more wiki-compliant and standarized. Many of the sections need more text and info as well as pics. If anyone has suggestions of additions let's discuss it before changing the new contents.

NB: Anyone who makes a change, pl. mark an entry on the talk page with reasons. It helps keep track.

Thanks! Indian (talk) 20:24, 21 August 2009 (UTC)
