Maharaja Randhir Singh (died 1823) was the Jat ruler of the princely state Bharatpur in India and successor to Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

Randhir Singh ascended the throne after death of his father, Maharaja Ranjit Singh in 1805. He tried to improve the state administration in various ways. He abolished the huge army that was creating disturbances and rebels due to delay in payment of salaries in order to maintain peace and reduce taxes in the state.

Singh helped the British colonial power to reduce the terror of Pindaris during his 18-year reign in Bharatpur. He also constructed a chhatri and palace in memory of his father.

Singh died without a male heir in 1823. His successor was Maharaja Baldeo Singh.
