Education in Punjab

After the partition of the country in 1947, the Punjab Education Department functioned from a camp office set up in Shimla’s Metropole Hotel. At that time, the Education Secretary was also Director of Public Instruction. On February 15, 1959, the office was shifted to Chandigarh, the new capital of Punjab. In 1966, when the southern districts of Punjab were constituted as the new state of Haryana, the department was reorganised with some staff going to the new state.
