:::::::::Well, to be clear, [[British Raj]] is the overview article, and I don't support creating a fork of that. I would support a shortish super-disam page on the various uses of the term. [[User:Johnbod|Johnbod]] ([[User talk:Johnbod|talk]]) 17:12, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
{{od}} For starters, the sentence, "British colonial rule in India, loosely referred to as British India," is incorrect. There is no broad-sense meaning of British India that is ''geographically'' anything more than Presidencies and provinces of British India. The broad-sense connotations are not geographical; they are sociological, political, literary, and cultural. That broad-sense page outlined above cannot be called "British India." there is no precedent for that in the scholarly literature. I have already quoted and cited Hardy's book. I'm sure I can find dozens of others, all published by academic publishers. {{re|No such user}} Sorry.

{{od}} You could call the broadscale or multiscale dab page [[British rule in India]], which currently redirects to the Raj (which is incorrect).
