WELCOME TO BALOCHISTAN ARCHIEVE DEPARTMENT
The Balochistan Archives is an executive agency of the Government of Balochistan which serves as the main repository for official records and documents of historical significance. The Archives contain evidence of financial and legal commitments, provide information about significant historical events, and help protect the civil and legal property rights of the citizens. In short, archives are the pillars on which the foundation of history stands and, therefore, require preservation and special care. We are the guardians of the most significant national and provincial level documents in Balochistan Province. Currently, we hold more than 30,000 files, printed (5,000 Rare Books) papers, books, and manuscripts pertaining to the colonial and post-independence period in Balochistan.
Balochistan Archives seeks to become a center of excellence for the provision of archival, research, and educational services in Balochistan Province over the next five years. We envision the extension of our services to the general public and researchers interested in Balochistan’s culture and history across Pakistan and abroad over the next decade.
