G- Ghiyasuddin Tughluq

    Soon after his accession, Ghiyasuddin Tughluq set himself to the task of restoring administrative order by removing the abuses of the preceding regime. Ghiyasuddin ordered a strict inquiry to be made into all claims and jagirs. Unlawful grants were confiscated to the state. the little unpopularity that he incurred by this measure was soon removed by his wise liberality and beneficent measures for the welfare of his subjects. He appointed upright governors in the provinces. Agriculture, the main industry of the people in this land, received special encouragement. Canals were excavated to irrigate the fields, gardens were planted and forts were built to provide shelter.

     Reforms were introduced in other branches of administration, like justice and police, so that order and security prevailed in the country. The postal system of the country was reorganized to facilitate communications and the military department was made efficient and orderly.


     But the days of Ghiyasuddin  were numbered. On returning from Bengal expedition he died in February-March 1325, from the collapse of a wooden structure which his sonJaura had built at Afghanpur, at a distance of five or six miles from Tughluqabad, the city founded by Ghiyasuddin  near Delhi.

  3. @Bikram the Punjab province of British India was divided between India and Pakistan. The Indian Punjab was divided in 1966 with the formation of the new states of Haryana and Himachal Pradesh, as well as the current state of Punjab
