Punjabi University (PU), Patiala established in 1962 was started as a unitary multi-faculty teaching and research university and primarily meant for the development and enrichment of Punjabi language and culture, but alive to the social and educational requirements of the state, it grew into an affiliating one in 1969. It has since developed in significant dimensions and acquired a distinctive character among the centres of education and research in the country.
The University has achieved a couple of milestones during its move towards furthering the overall development of Punjabi. In addition to accelerating the pace of meeting its primary obligation to fostering the academic, intellectual and scholastic standards, the University has been making genuine and unstinted efforts for the rural upliftment of society through various means.
