The origin and position of all Jadon Kotris of Karauli —–

The Karauli family all bear distinguishing appellation of Pal in token that they ,as descendants of Sri Krishna ,as protectors (pal) of cows,Where as the Lion (singh) does not respect the sacred animal.

Leading Personages——

The leading men of Karauli are the nobles who are divided into Thikanedars , Bapotidars , and others;hereditary office -bearers ,and other officials.

The Aristocracy—–

The feudal aristocracy of the estate consists entirely of the Jadon/Jadaun or Jadu Thakurs connected with ruling house.They pay as tribute(kandi) a fixed sum ,which through nominally one -fourth of the produce of soil ,is in reality much less ,in fact less than half the share paid by common land-holders.This tribute is in lieu of constant military service, which is not performed inKarauli .But when military emergencies arise or state pageants occur the thakurs come with their retainers ,who on these occasions are maintained at the expense of the state or Darbar.The total “kandi” amounts to about Rs.23,000.No tax is ordinarily exacted in addition to the kandi, except in cases of disputed succession to estates when nazrana has been recently taken from the successful claimant.The thakurs ,specially the chief ones ,levy “bhum ,”or custom duty,on goods in transit or sold on their estates.

The Thakur Families( Kotris)—–

The Thakur’s families (Kotris )paying tribute (kandi) are thirty-seven (37) in number ,of which those of Hadoti , Amargarh , Inaiti , Raontra  and Barthun are called as Thikanedars .The remainder are styled Bapotidars.The other families of nobles are of little importance and belong chiefly to the Haridas and Mokand Kotris or to the Pal Family.
