However, after defeat of Marathas, they were recognized by British as feudatory chiefs in 1865 conferring the title and sanad to Mahant Laxman Das.[4] Mahant Ritu Purna Kishor Das, the last ruling Chief of Chhuikhadan signed the accession of the State to the Union of India on 1 February 1948.[5] [6]
