Location of Dulehra in Jhajjar district

Dulera or Dulehra (दुल्हेड़ा) village in Bahadurgarh tahsil, was previously in Rohtak, now in District Jhajjar in Haryana.

Interestingly, now it falls under Beri constituency of Haryana Vidhan Sabha, which perhaps makes no sense!

This is a large village, situated on the main road (between Bahadurgarh and Jhajjar). Chhudani (छुडाणी), Kharman (खरमाण) Daboda Khurd (डाबोदा खुर्द), Kherka Gujjar (खेड़का गुज्जर) and Kablana (कबलाना) are other neighbouring villages.

Jat gotras

Dulehra was founded many centuries ago, by migrants of Deswal gotra, from village Baliana.

The other neighbouring village is 'Kherka Gujjar' - there also, only one gaut - Deswal.

The village has two Govt. high schools, a small polytechnic and a separate boys' primary school, apart from some other private schools. The village has got a branch of a nationalised bank (Punjab National Bank), a post office, a Haryana Police post and a telephone exchange. Being in the NCR region and just 15 kilometres away from Delhi border and the fact that the proposed Kundali-Manesar-Palwal expressway will pass near this village, more developmental activities are in the pipeline. Land prices have gone very high.

Village Dulehra is having water supply system for a group of nearby villages. A very old time SHIVA Mandir road (near the sports stadium) and a committee consisting of all youth of the village are maintaining the Mandir. Recently a Sports Stadium has also come up in neighboring village Kherka Gujjar which will facilitate the youth to create constructive atmosphere.

BABA ASHANAND DERA is also situated on the road and on every Sunday, almost all villagers from Kherka Gujjar and Dulehra pay respect to dera.

The village has a Haryana Govt. dispensary, a veterinary hospital for cattle, two high schools (upto class XII) for boys and girls each, a Govt. Polytechnic institute, post office (PIN Code 124528), a computerised branch of Punjab National Bank, water supply system, and several chaupals. In addition, there are several private schools in the village. There is a telephone exchange (Area code 1276) also for the area, which has started providing Internet services. Major mobile phone companies have set up transmission towers in the village, on account of its prominent location.

दुल्हेड़ा बाराह संगठन

यह 12 गांवों का संगठन है जिसे दुल्हेड़ा बाराह खाप भी कहते हैं। आजकल प्रो० उमेदसिंह देशवाल (दुल्हेड़ा निवासी) इसके प्रधान हैं। यह संगठन समय-समय पर सामाजिक हित में फैसले करता आ रहा है जिनका इसके आधीन आने वाले सभी गाँव पालन करते हैं। इन गाँवों के नाम इस प्रकार हैं -

1. दुल्हेड़ा, 2. खेड़का गुज्जर, 3. गोयला कलाँ, 4. छुडाणी, 5. भदाणी, 6. भदाणा, 7. कबलाणा, 8. गंगड़वा, 9. गुभाणा, 10.माजरी, 11. जरगदपुर 12. अस्थल धाम - यह एक धार्मिक एवं ऐतिहासिक मठ/मंदिर है जिसे छत्रपति शिवाजी ने बनवाया था। यह दुल्हेड़ा और खेड़का गुज्जर के बीच में बसा है।

इन 12 गाँवों का आपस में भाईचारा है और इनमें आपसी रिश्ते (ब्याह-शादी) नहीं होते।


According to 2001 census, the population of Dulehra was 7304 (Male: 4054, Female: 3250)[2]

12-Khap decision


Ravinder Saini, Tribune News Service Jhajjar, October 22, 2018

Representatives of the Dulhera khap, which wields influence in 12 villages of the district, on Sunday resolved not to solemnise weddings at night. This has been done so to prevent commotion as well as drunken driving which leads to road mishaps.

At a meeting, they took a pledge to keep the number of “barartis” fewer and not to give or take dowry.

The khap that represents Dulhera, Khedka, Gola, Asthal, Gubhana, Majri, Gangadwa, Jalgadhpur, Chhudani, Badhani, Badhana and Kablana villages also imposed a ban on celebratory firing and playing of DJ music in weddings.

A committee in all 12 villages has been formed to ensure the execution of the khap’s decisions. Village sarpanchs will lead the committees.

Umed Singh Deswal, president of the Dulhera khap, said: “At night weddings, ‘baratis’ consume liquor and then quarrel with others. They drive back home in an inebriated state, raising the possibility of road accidents. So, the khap has decided to organise weddings during the day as ‘baratis’ generally hesitate to consume liquor at that time.”

He further said fewer “baratis” would lessen the financial burden on the bride’s family. “Only family members and relatives will be allowed to be part of the ‘barat’. Most of the villagers agreed to limit the numbers of ‘baratis’.”

“The khap’s decision against celebratory firing will turn out to be instrumental,” Deswal added.
