Fatehpur is a village and gram panchayat [1][2] in the Yamunanagar district of the Indian state of Haryana. Also known as Fatehpur-123, it comes under the jurisdiction of Jagadhri tehsil.

History[edit]

Fatehpur village came into existence in the mid-19th century. It was founded by Fateh Singh Kamboj, after whom the village is named. It became a gram panchayat and its first appointed nambardar was Ch. Kundan Lal. Fatehpur Gram Panchayat used to consist of two villages namely Fatehpur and Behrampur. But in 2010 Behrampur got its own gram panchayat.

Demographics[edit]

As of the 2011 Census of India, the village had 301 households with a total population of 1,484 of which 755 were male and 729 female.[3] It is culturally a very diversified village as it is a home to many communities despite being a small village. Kambojs constitutes more than half of the total population. The rest of the population is constituted of Brahmins, Dalits, Banias and a few Muslim Telis.

Infrastructure[edit]

Like all other villages of the state, Fatehpur has concrete roads and paved streets. Solar street lights are installed in every corner of the village under the Surya Urja Scheme. There is a government school in the village which provides education up to matriculation standard. It was established in 1983. The village has a post office, an old age home and a veterinary hospital. Separate chaupals have been built for Kambojs and Valmikis[clarification needed]. There is also a community hall in the village which is hardly used by anyone.
