The India WikiProject is a group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of topics related to the Republic of India and the history of the Indian subcontinent. The goals of this group are three-fold—

To achieve the goals, this project group has developed features to help in managing its creative work. It includes Departments, which coordinate work on certain tasks, such as peer review or project-wide collaboration and Work Groups, and focus on content and articles related to India, such as cities, politics and culture.

Participation

The details of WikiProject India members can be found at Wikipedia:WikiProject India/Members. Feel free to add your name and join in this initiative. The main page for discussion is Wikipedia:Noticeboard for India-related topics, consider adding it to your watchlist.

Departments

Departments are groups of members who do specific work. Tasks include authoring, maintaining the project pages, administering portals, adding articles, participating in reviews, managing the project and so on. The following is a list of departments within the WikiProject. WikiProject Members may not necessarily do only departmental tasks. They can contribute content as a member of Work Groups as well.

Coverage

Guide

The guide makes a list of tools, scripts and suggestions required for editing WikiProject India related articles.

Assessment

The assessment department focuses on assessing the quality of Wikipedia's Indian articles. While much of the work is done in conjunction with the WP:1.0 program, the article ratings are also used within the project itself to aid in recognising excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are done in a distributed fashion through parameters in the ((WikiProject India)) project banner; this causes the articles to be placed in a set of categories that serves as the basis for an automatically generated worklist.

Peer review

The peer review department conducts peer reviews of India-related articles on request; this helps to obtain ideas for further improvement by having contributors who may not have previously worked on particular articles examine them. Project members are invited to submit articles to the department in lieu of using the generic peer review process.

Photography

The photography department aims to provide a collection of high-quality photographs and images for use in India articles.

Cartography

The cartography department aims to create a collection of high-quality maps for use in India articles. The department gathers existing public domain and free-license maps as well as creating new ones from other materials where no suitable maps can be found. All project members are welcome to request additional maps that may be needed for particular articles from the department.

Requests

The Requested articles and Request department aims to organize, create and elevate the status of requested articles as well as properly categorize all newly created articles and remember to tag with wikiproject India.

Kitchen

The Kitchen of WikiProject India has a list of Indian cuisine related personal user awards from where you can give food barnstars to others.

Project guidelines

Manual of Style

Main page: Wikipedia:Manual of Style/India-related articles

Indic scripts in lead

Per the Manual of Style page on India-related articles, avoid the use of Indic scripts in the lead sections or infoboxes. Instead, use International Phonetic Alphabet pronunciation guides, which are more international. Exceptions are articles on the script itself, articles on a language that uses the script, and articles on texts originally written in a particular script. This does not apply to articles that are not predominantly within the scope of WikiProject India.

Project organisation

Check Wikipedia:WikiProject India/Workgroups to see the Project organisation.

Project banner

Place this WikiProject notice ((WikiProject India)) at the top of an article's Talk page to direct editors to the Wikiproject India. Please refer to Wikipedia:WikiProject India/Project banner for banner usage guidelines.
