Proto historic period means period between Pre-History(no written text as source of information) and History (written text as source of information).
a
And we know that at some cities of IVC the gates has written text as well as there are other evidences of writting.
but these text are not deciphered and in very small volume.
Which confirms that writing was in it's initial phase.
Proto means beginning hence IVC period is Proto-Historic Period.

History is if two kinds pre- history which has no written evidence but only archeological findings
and proto- history that has written evidence but can't be deciphered.
thus IVC is a protohistoric civilization

Bhavye Bareja answered Aug 13, 2018
The Indus Valley Civilisation (IVC), or Harappan Civilisation, was a Bronze Age civilisation (3300–1300 BCE; mature period 2600–1900 BCE)[2] mainly in the northwestern regions of South Asia, extending from what today is northeast Afghanistan to Pakistan and northwest India.Along with Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, it was one of three early cradles of civilisations of the Old World, and of the three, the most widespread.

Aridification of this region during the 3rd millennium BCE may have been the initial spur for the urbanisation associated with the civilisation, but eventually also reduced the water supply enough to cause the civilisation's demise, and to scatter its population eastward.
