Raja Jahandad took the title of Khan Bahadur on 24 May 1881 and the Companion of the Order of the Indian Empire (CIE) on January 1, 1904.
Raja Jahandad Khan remained Assistant Commissioner, Punjab. He was sent as an ambassador of the British Government of India to Afghanistan to congratulate Amir Habibullah Khan on the latter's accession.
As a young man, Raja Jahandad inherited Khanpur (NWFP) estate containing 84 villages from his father Raja Haider Bukhsh. Khanpur estate was founded by Fateh Khan son of Said Khan probably in or around 1537.
Raja Jahandad Khan married the daughter of the Afghan Amir Sher Ali Khan and had three sons - Captain Raja Haider Zaman (MBE, Delhi Durbar Medal, Dehli Coronation Medal, Chairman District board Hazara); Raja Manochehar Khan and Raja Safdar Khan. His descendants are still styled as Chiefs of the Gakhars and hold considerable influence in parts of the Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa.
