About: Indpaedia is an unfunded, volunteer-run archive-cum-encyclopædia that hopes to contain information about every Indian (if possible, South Asian) topic of general interest. Since 2013 we have uploaded around 15,000 articles, and we add or update roughly fifteen articles every day. Our country-wise links (above) are not working too well right now, but we already have a few hundred articles each about Bangladesh, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan. We have uploaded 13,500+ articles about India so far. You can find the information you want through the ‘Search’ box (top right) or these country-wise indexes.

General knowledge for researchers—and for the civil services and other ‘competitive’ exams: Detailed, year-wise statistics are available on Indpaedia about almost every topic likely to be of use to those studying India (and, wherever possible, South Asia).

Indpaedia’s goal is to have a page about every sub-caste and tribe (we have covered around 5,100 Communities so far); every town, no matter how small (we have already uploaded over 5,250 articles about Places); every animal and plant; every higher secondary school and college; every aspect of our Economy-Industry-Resources; everyone connected with Cinema-TV-Pop, currently or in the past; indeed, every aspect of our sub-continent.

For this, Indpaedia plans to enable readers to post new articles and updates directly. Till then you can send new articles, and update or correct existing pages, and/ or send photographs to the Facebook page All information used will be duly acknowledged. If you find anything posted on Indpaedia offensive or if your article or photograph has been used without your permission, please report it to the same page.
