He has been helping in organizing Punjabi Wikipedia Article Writing Competition, Punjabi Wikipedia 13th Anniversary Edit-a-thon and Punjabi Wiki Workshop, Chandigarh. He has also played an important role in getting Punjabi Wikimedians recognized as an official Wikimedia affiliate.
- One of the nominated candidate gave his opinion that Punjabi Wikimedians should focus on Non-Patiala candidates and select them to represent Punjabi Wikimedians at Wikimedia Conference and 2 participants endorsed him as well.
