The Chib or Chibb are a clan of Chandravanshi Rajput dogra found in the northern parts of India and in Pakistan and also a Hindu Rajput clan of Jammu and Kashmir. They form a part of dogra culture. The majority of Chib Rajputs 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 Chib in the newly designated Pakistan moved to India.
