Amils is a clan of Lohana. The word "Amil" has its origin in the Persian word "amal" (as "administer"). In Sindh this clan ranks first in the hierarchical ranking among Lohanas, followed by Bhaiband and Sahitis. The Lohana Amils held the highest administrative offices under Muslim rulers, beginning in the mid-eighteenth century. They speak Sindhi. Amils consist principally of bankers, clerks, and minor officials.
