According to Imperial Gazeteer of India v-8,p-22, the Bhadra tehsil was formerly the estate of one of the principal Thakurs ; but he was in constant rebellion against the Darbaris and was finally dispossessed in 1818. More than 44 per cent of the population were Jats at that time.
According to James Tod as mentioned in his book "Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan (1829)" the Jangladesh region was inhabited by Jats or Jits, who had for ages been established in these arid abodes. At every stage of invasion to India the invaders had to encounter with the Jats of this region. At what period the Jats established themselves in the Indian desert is not known. By the 4th century they had spread upto Punjab in India.
Nearly the whole of the territory forming the boundaries of Bikaner was possessed by the six Jat cantons namely:—
Each canton bore the name of the community, and was subdivided into districts. Number of villages in each canton and Districts included in them were as under :
Political Influence of Jats
