Dosar Vaishya is a Hindu Vaishya community [1] that originated from the Dhosi hill region near Rewari. They are also known as Dhusar.

They have established academic institutions and industries in Kanpur and other cities.[2] They are often big merchants of a good socio-economic status.[3] Hemu Vikramaditya, who was defeated deceitfully by Akbar's forces, is said to have been from Dosar Vaishya community. The author of the famous Jhanda Geet (विजयी विश्व तिरंगा प्यारा, झण्डा ऊँचा रहे हमारा), Shyam Lal Gupta was a Dosar.[4]
