History :

Punjay and Haryana State Division

From 1952 to 1966 (this is the year Haryana was carved out of Punjab) Chandigarh was the capital of Punjab. Citizens of the chandigarh city were represented in the state's Legislative Assembly. While Punjab had remained undivided, Chandigarh, like other large cities of India, fitted into the larger framework of the state administration. When Punjab was divided, both Punjab and Haryana claimed the new city for its capital.
