For those who come across this article, I've flagged it as needing cleanup. While it contains some good information, it would be greatly improved if it were brought into accordance with the Manual of Style standards, and began by defining what a chhimba was: it's still not clear after reading, at least to someone relatively ignorant about these things as I am, what their role is in modern times. Some of the other text, e.g. a list of historical castes, might be better placed in another article. I did some basic clean up of this article, but as the subject is something I'm not familiar with, I can't rewrite it very well. Fogster (talk) 01:18, 20 May 2008 (UTC)


Over two years on, and this article remains a confusing mess. Is it about a caste, or about printing? Currently it seems to be a mixture of the two with no clear information on either subject. Are the two at all related? Should this be two separate articles? Which info belongs to which subject? --Escape Orbit (Talk) 21:40, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

It's about a caste or sub-caste of the kshatriyas. The profession of chhimbas was printing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:18, 9 January 2012 (UTC)

The main profession of Chhimba people is stitching clothes. I ,myself, belong to Chhimba caste — Preceding unsigned comment added by Charanjaitu (talkcontribs) 07:01, 19 April 2012 (UTC)

Citation Needed[edit]

After going through the article I do not understand whether people like Mahatma Gandhi and V.V. Giri were belonging to CHHIPA. If anybody has any proof, citation, reference etc. please clarify this point. Saint Namdev of Maharashtra were born in this caste and it is a fact. The main business of CHHIPA is stitching and/or printing. I belong to the same caste and there are ample families of this caste in Rajasthan. The population of 3300 (Rajasthan)as mentioned in the article is much less than the actual figure. Requesting people of this caste to please provide material on the issue if they have one. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Esskay303 (talkcontribs) 07:49, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Saint Namdev was a Maharashtrian Bhavsar as his surname was Relekar. Please see the articles on Namdev & Bhavsar.— Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:11, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
