The Jhinwar are a Hindu caste and Sikh caste found in the states of Haryana and Punjab in India. They are also known as Kashyap Rajputs or simply Mehra or Mehre Community. A smaller number of Jhinwar are Sikh. This community is associated with many labor and administrative jobs in ancient times.Examples like Royal Guards(best depicted in hindi film Eklavya: The Royal Guard). Eklavya,the tribal warrior prince from Mahabharata is considered to be part of Kashyap Rajput clan , and other jobs like Horse cart carriers (buggyeman or tangawala),army soldiers and policemen. Jaimal and Patta Singh two, brave army chieftains of Mewar resistance during Mughal wars, were Kashyap Rajputs.Administration jobs like village and town accountants and some small scale businessmen etc.Few Jhinwar were water carriers and palanquin bearers also but both these occupations have been abandoned.Some are also associated with fishing. They are found mainly in Kotli and Mirpur districts.A small number are farmers, but a greater number are working class people with less or no agriculture land.A large number of the community are now operating road side restaurants/dhabas, a trade that seems to have been monopolized by the Jhinwars.
