It is updated by a tool on the toolserver; it will not work if the toolserver is

then the table will be updated slowly or not at all.

Some Wikipedians have formed a project to improve the organisation and quality of articles related to the Hindustani language and all allied languages/dialects, either to itself or to one of its registers, Hindi or Urdu. The project is a direct child of the Indian Wikiproject, however Pakistanis are welcome to join this project, provided they understand or want to understand the relationships among the concerned languages linguistically and not ideologically(same holds for Indian nationalists too).

If you would like to help, please inquire on the talk page and see the to-do list there.


The scope of this article fundamentally is loosely defined as all articles and sections relating to Uttar Pradesh. Almost all of these will be (eventually) categorised under Category:Uttar Pradesh and Category:India


  1. To produce as many Featured Articles as possible related to the above mentioned languages.

We will try to come up with a portal once we have a strong base of articles.


Naming conventions[edit]

Indic naming conventions are to be generally followed in the Wikiproject. The page specifically mentions about Arabic-derived scripts as well.
