Panchkot Raj, also known as Panchkot Zamindari or Kashipur Raj, was a family of Zamindars who ruled in the western fringe areas of present-day West Bengal and some of the adjacent areas in present-day Jharkhand .
Post-independence, when the Parliament subjected the Right to property to certain restrictions and states began to initiate aggressive agrarian reforms by passing laws that abolished the Zamindari system, the family approached the Supreme Court.Subsequently, in 1951, a five-bench-judge unanimously ruled in favor of the government.
