Are there criteria for inclusion of a group in this list? I note that a few castes are included but hundreds are missing and that some subgroups (Saraiki people, for example) are included while others (Pahari people) are not. --regentspark (comment) 02:14, 5 February 2016 (UTC)
@RegentsPark: A bit late but the lead of the article speaks of ethno-linguistic groups so we should restrict it to those groups. Caste groups have therefore been removed. As far as I know Saraiki people are a distinct ethno-linguistic group whereas Pahari is a language family. Individual Pahari groups like Garwhalis etc should be included.

I believe the main map used on the info box should be deleted as in my opinion it is not very accurate. For example many distinct languages are classed under the banner of Hindi such as Marwari and Maithili neither of which are dialects of Hindi. Damien2016 (talk) 22:30, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
I think the map is useful. If it is not accurate, please generate consensus and get it modified at the Graphics lab. -- Kautilya3 (talk) 23:53, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
