Category, Indian National Highways (old numbering)[edit]

I need a clarification regarding articles under Category:Indian National Highways (old numbering). Are articles under this category waiting to be renamed/moved/redirected or they are being preserved as historic record of old national highway articles. Thanks Jazze7 (talk) 07:42, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Many articles are removed or redirected. I dont remember any discussions on that front. My opinion is to remove that articles. -- naveenpf (talk) 09:45, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

Thank you naveenpf (talk) for inviting me to this project and clarifying on this topic. I just wanted to know if I should put in any time in these old articles. In my humble opinion this category and related articles about old national highways are worthy of retaining as a historical record as they will assist in study and research about them by future readers due to numerous references. As for redirects, they are easily recoverable, preferably by the editors who made them. I have done so with old NH 71 although I was not aware of old developments at the time. I have gone through archives on this project and am better informed now. I will be happy to go along with whatever the community deems fit and will refrain from recovering any more old NHs. I was almost going to recover NH 47 from here yesterday. as I thought it was worth doing it. I look forward to joining hands with community to improve this project and learn more along the way.

there is huge backlog for NH pending. out 510 NHs only 234 articles are created. I think our first priority should creating existing NHs. -- naveenpf (talk) 02:30, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

I fully agree with you naveenpf (talk). Is there a section where resources are listed for latest NHs. I am aware of latest one which I used in creation of NH347/NH547 and it is pretty outdated and doesn't list all. Jazze7 (talk) 08:18, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

We use to update OSM NH list first [1] based on egazzette notification.
Gazzette notification:-
This list has to updated I guess List_of_National_Highways_in_India_by_highway_number,many NHs are not present here-- naveenpf (talk) 08:31, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

Many thanks for that superb information naveenpf (talk). I used to wonder how come OSM is the only map that is always uptodate. The number has gone upto 523. At this rate there are going to be very few SHs left. Above info will be of great help in my contributions. Thanks again. Jazze7 (talk) 10:54, 5 May 2018 (UTC)

A small observation. Methodology of new national highways have some unusual side effects on regional language and foreign language articles related to NHs of India. Jazze7 (talk) 07:34, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

Switching issue on Article - Talk buttons of some NH articles, e.g. NH 13[edit]

Are these issues already known? When you open or land up on National Highway 13 (India), on clicking Talk button you end up here Talk:National Highway 13 (India)(old numbering). When you click on Article button, instead of landing back on NH 13, you reach here National Highway 50 (India). Click talk again > Talk:National Highway 50 (India)(old numbering). Click Article > National Highway 16 (India). Click Talk > Talk:National Highway 16 (India). Click Article > Back to NH 16 which is normal.

Similar issues with a number of articles with varying degree of switch problems. Jazze7 (talk) 13:36, 11 June 2018 (UTC)
