Chhillar (छिल्लर)[1][2] Chhilller/Chhiller(छिल्लर) Chheelar (छील्लर) [3] Chhail (छैल)[4] Chillar (चिल्लर) gotra Jats live in Jaipur district in Rajasthan. Also found in Jhajjar and Bahadurgarh districts in Haryana and in Delhi State and Moradabad district in Uttar Pradesh. Chillar (छीलर) and Chhikara (छिकारा) both are same. They do not have inter marriges.



Ram Swarup Joon[5] writes that Chhillar and Chhikhara Both these gotras are related to each other and to Dalal and Deshwal gotras too. The Chhillar gotra is found in the Punjab. It appears that Chhail and Chhilar are one and the same gotra. Near Bahadurgarh in district Rohtak (Haryana) they have a few villages in a compact area. They are considered to be the descendants of Mann.

The Vayu Purana (47, 44) and the Matsya Purana, (121, 45) mention that: The Chaksu or Oxus river goes to the sea after irrigating the lands of the Sandhrans (Jats) , Tukharas (Takhar Jats), Lampakas (Lamba Jats), Pahlavas (Pehlavi-Iranians) Daradas (of Kashmir) and Chhakans (Chhikara Jats).[6]

Dasharatha Sharma in book "Early Chauhan Dynasties" [Page-171] while discussing Udayasimha Chauhan of Jalor writes that Iltutmish pushed on, and managed to reach Udayasimha's desert capital. Udayasimha opened negotiations; and the Sultan though he could hardly have been satisfied with the token tribute of a hundred camels and two hundred horses offered by Udayasirhha, accepted it and confirmed Udayasimha in his possessions. Nearly five years later, perhaps in V. 1278 when Iltutmish once again assumed the offensive against Rajasthan, and after sacking Nagda advanced even upon Gujarat, Udayasirhha joined as already stated above, the league organised by Viradhavala Vaghela of Dholka and his minister Vastupala. The drama gives the name of the Muslim invader as Milachchhrikara (मीलच्छ्रिकार), which Dr. G.H. Ojha equates with Amir-i-shikar, a title once borne by Iltutmish. Drs.D.R. Barnett and H.C, Ray object to the identification, saying that Milachchhrikara cannot phonetically be the Sanskritised form of Amir-i-shikar. It is no doubt so; but it can be easily the Paisachi form of Mir-i-shikar. The Muslim ruler and his minister talk with each other in Paishachi; so it is only natural that he should have a Paisachi name. The dramatist changes Mir into Mila and shikar into chhrikara through the intermediate Sanskritised form Shrikara. The usual sandhi rules thereafter give us the Milachchhrikara, actually used in the drama. As regards the date of this expedition we put it about V. 1278 (1221 A.D.)

Jatland considers that Milachchhrikara may be a combination of Meel + Chhikara, representing the combined forces of the two clans.

छीलर-छिकारा का इतिहास

छीलरछिकारा एक ही नाम है, केवल भाषा-भेद से दो नाम बोले जाने लगे। छीलर व छिकारा एक ही रक्त के हैं, इसीलिए इनके आमने-सामने तथा भानजा-भानजी के आपस में रिश्ते-नाते नहीं होते हैं

दलीप सिंह अहलावत[7] लिखते हैं कि इतिहासकारों ने यह सिद्ध किया है के छीलर-छिकारा चीमा जाटों के वंशज हैं तथा उसी की शाखा हैं। पंजाब में चीमा एवं छिकारे जाट एक ही स्थान पर बसे हुए हैं।

चीमा चन्द्रवंशी जाट गोत्र है। यह गोत्र वैदिककाल से है। चीमा जाट आर्यावर्त से चीन देश में गए और वहां बस्तियां बसाईं तथा राज्य किया। (अधिक जानकारी के लिए देखो तृतीय अध्याय, चीना या चीमा प्रकरण)।

छीलर व छिकारा एक ही नाम है, केवल भाषा-भेद से दो नाम बोले जाने लगे। छीलर व छिकारा एक ही रक्त के हैं, इसीलिए इनके आमने-सामने तथा भानजा-भानजी के आपस में रिश्ते-नाते नहीं होते हैं। यह इन दोनों का रक्त भाई का ठोस प्रमाण है।
