Manuscripts are such primary sources which reflect the social-cultural-historical-religious-political-economic-scientific-educational-medical-technological information of specific times beyond common tools of information. This paper deals with the initiatives taken by Punjab Government in preserving the rarest of ancient cultural treasures of the times in the form of manuscripts by means of digitizing them and making them accessible for the researchers of art and history in particular and for universal education and common information use in general, particularly by the Punjab State Archives Department, Languages Department of Punjab and Directorate of Cultural Affairs, Archaeology and Museums, Punjab (India). Types, material and size of manuscripts available with these government departments are also broadly discussed.

Keywords: Manuscripts, Digitization of manuscripts, Punjab State Archives Department, Languages Department of Punjab, Directorate of Cultural Affairs, Archaeology and Museums, Punjab
