History

Dr. Girish Chandra Dwivedi [3] has mentioned in his book The Jats - Their Role in the Mughal Empire about historical records maintained by Khaps. A Sarva Khap Panchayat was held here in samvat 1718.

Jahangir sometimes showed the top Jat leaders the unique favour of calling them to his audience and giving Khilats. [4] But Aurangzeb reversed this policy. He “restricted the activities” of their customary institutions. This along with his religious fanaticism, created concern among the Jats. They discussed this issue in a meeting at Chhaprauli (1718 V.S) and decided to protest against the new laws and pleaded for the reversion of the policy of the Delhi court. [5], [6]
