Chandigarh, Jan 22: The Punjab government has decided to enable the teaching of the Punjabi language online as part of efforts to popularise it around the world.

Towards that end, a comprehensive roadmap is being chalked out in association with the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) while the government would also rope in Punjabi University at Patiala for its mission. This information was shared by Education Minister Dr Daljit Singh Cheema at a meeting here yesterday.
