Bhatti (Punjabi: بھٹی/ਭੱਟੀ) is a Punjabi clan[1] of Rajputs and Jats.[2][3][4] The Bhattis along with Bhuttos and Bhatias claim to have originated from the Hindu Bhati Rajputs.[5]

The Muslim Bhattis had control over Bhatner and settlements around it. The Bhattis later lost Bhatner to the Rathores of Bikaner, who renamed Bhatner as Hanumangarh.[6] In the years preceding the Indian rebellion of 1857 the British East India Company assigned pioneering Jat peasants proprietary rights over forested lands frequented by the Gujjars, Bhattis, Banjaras, Passis, and other wandering pastoral groups in Delhi and western Haryana regions.[7]
