The Chib (Chibb, Chibh) (Hindi: चिब, Urdu, Potwari: چب) are a clan of Chandravanshi Rajput dogra found in the northern parts of India and in Pakistan and also a Hindu Jat clan of Jammu and Kashmir. They are mostly a Kashmiri tribe. The majority of Chib Rajput have accepted Islam, while some remain Hindus and a very few are Sikhs. After the Partition of India in 1947, nearly all Muslim Chib migrated to Pakistan from the Indian areas, while Hindu Chibs in the newly designated Pakistan moved to India.
