Past Perfect Continuous Tense

Past Perfect Continuous Tense is used to express a continued or ongoing action that started in past and is continued until sometime in past. There will always a time reference like – for a few days, for ten months, for 2 years, since Wednesday, since 2011, since January etc. If there is no time reference, then it is not a Past perfect continuous tense. Without time reference, it is Past Continuous Tense.

e.g. - I was learning English in this school - Past Continuous Tense
I had been learning English in this school for 20 days - Past Perfect Continuous Tense



पास्ट पर्फेक्ट कंटिन्युअस टेन्स बताता है कि कार्य या एक्शन भूतकाल में लगातार जारी रहा था । इसकी पहचान है -वाक्य के अंत में 'रहा था', 'रही थी', 'रहे थे' का प्रयोग होता है । परंतु ऐसे वाक्यों में लगातार समय का प्रयोग जरूरी है । अगर वाक्य में कार्य या एक्शन एक नियत समय से लगातार जारी था और वाक्य के अंत में 'रहा था', 'रही थी', 'रहे थे' हो, तो वह पास्ट पर्फेक्ट कंटिन्युअस टेन्स है । अगर लगातार समय नही दिया हुआ है और वाक्य के अंत में 'रहा था', 'रही थी', 'रहे थे' हो, तो वह पास्ट कंटिन्युअस टेन्स है । वाक्य में लगातार समय का प्रयोग ही पास्ट कंटिन्युअस और पास्ट पर्फेक्ट कंटिन्युअस टेन्स में अंतर (डिफरेंस) बताता है।
