    The department of Sociology and Social Anthropology of university had submitted a proposal to the government prepared under the supervision of Dr Birinder Pal Singh, Professor in the Department and Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences. After accepting the proposal the government sanctioned Rs 8,36,400 for the purpose of carrying out the study on the lifestyles and socio-economic conditions of the Dakhni Sikhs of the southern states and Assamiya Sikhs of the north eastern states.

    Talking about the significance of the study, Dr Jaspal Singh said that the Sikhs settled in south and north-eastern states have lived through unique kinds of ordeals and troubles which needed in-depth study.

    "They have their own sets of demographic and psychographic orientations which tend to make them an exclusive entity in themselves," said VC.

    Commenting upon the nature of the study, Dr Birinder Pal Singh said that collecting data about these communities will open up new vistas to understand the socio-historical and cultural aspects of these communities whose ancestors settled there long ago and also inspired other local people to adopt the Sikh religion.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
