Jatrana (जटराणा)[1][2] Jatrana (जटराना)[3][4] Jatrana Jatu (जाटू)[5] Jatoo (जाटू)[6] Jatri (जत्री), Jitrana (जिटराणा) Jatu (जतू)[7] /(जातू)[8] [9] is a clan or gotra of Jats. [10] They are found in Uttaranchal, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan,[11] Delhi in India.


Nagla Salaru, Mannakhedi and Udhal Hedi are main villages in Haridwar district. In Muzaffarnagar Khedagadhi, Datiana and 12 villages and Sof, Mayapur villages in Bijnor district are of Jatrana Jats. One of the villages in Bagpat (earlier came under District Meerut) is Dhanora Silver Nagar or locally called as Puthhi Dhanuara. They also live in Nangli Poona village of north Delhi.

H.A. Rose[12] writes: Jatu (जाटू), said to be a Tunwar (Tomar) clan who once held almost the whole of Hissar, and are still most numerous in that District and the neighbouring portions of Rohtak and Jind. When the great Chauhan Bisaldeo overthrew Anangpal II, the Tunwar (Tomar) king of Delhi, the Tunwar (Tomar)s were driven from Delhi to Jalopattan in the Shekhawati country north of Jaipur and there Dul Ram, a descendant of Anangpal, ruled. His son Jairat extended the Tunwar (Tomar) dominion to Bagar in Jaipur and the tract is still called the Tunwarwati. In fact the Tunwar (Tomar) of Hariana are said to have been divided into three clans named after and descended from, three brothers, Jatu, Raghu and Satraula, of which clans Jatu was by far the largest and most important, and once ruled from Bhiwani to Agroha. They are the hereditary enemies of the Punwar of Rohtak, and at length the sandhills of Mahm were fixed upon as the boundary between them, and are still known as Jatu Punwar ka daula or the Jatu-Punwar boundary. In Karnal, however, the Jatu describe themselves as Chauhan also.

Jairat (जैरात), the Tomar, had a son, Jatu, (so-called because he had hair, jata, on him at the time of his birth) by a Sankla Rajputni, and his son migrated to Sirsa where he married Palat Devi, daughter of Kanwarpal, a Siroha and sister of the mother of the great Guga Pir. Kanwarpal made the tract about Hansi over to his son-in-law and the latter sent for his brothers Raghu and Satraula from Jilopattan to share it with him. Jatu's sons, Sidh and Harpal, founded Rajli and Gurana villages, and on the overthrow of the Chauhan Rai Pithaura by the Muhammadans the Jatus extended their power over Agroha, Hansi, Hissar and Bhiwani, their boast being that they once ruled 1,440 kheras or settlements. Amrata also seized 40 villages in the Kanaud (Mohindargarh) ilaqa of Patiala. The three brothers, Jatu, Raghu and Satraula divided the pargana of Hansi into three tappas, each named after one of themselves. Umr Singh, one of their descendants took Tosham, and after him that ilaqa was named the Umrain tappa, while that of Bhiwani was called the Bachwau lappa, after one Bacho, a Jatu. At Siwani Jatu's descendants bore the title of Rai, those of Talwandi Rana that of Rana, while those at Kulheri were called Chaudhri.
