Some Wikipedians have formed a project to improve organisation and standardised look and feel of articles related to Punjab. This was found particularly important due to, among other reasons, occasionally conflicting views and opinions on topics from the two main parts of Punjab, namely Pakistani Punjab and Indian Punjab.

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 Punjab. Almost all of these will be (eventually) categorised under Category:Punjab and possibly under Category:India and/or Category:Pakistan as well, depending on relevance!


  1. Creation of a generally standard look and feel for all Punjab-related articles
  2. Distinction between the use of the terminologies Punjab, Punjab (India), Punjab (Pakistan) and Punjab region.

One, this is really bad. I mean, take a look at guys like the people of Bangladesh and West Bengal, they come up with FAs every couple of weeks, just like that, it's amazing that Punjab hasn't managed to get anything much.
