Chaukidar Meenas

.The Chaukidar Meena belongs to the Meena community. They were warriors by profession and status-wise as well. Chaukidar Meenas are a branch of those Meenas, who during the later middle age adopted fighting against external attackers. Normally they are found in north-east Rajasthan of India.

They kept raging guerilla warfare against Rajput rulers after the downfall of Meena rule. Later they chose to guard villages instead of farming. They were of brave and independent nature and showed never bending attitude to Britishers and local Rajput rulers.

They were well known for their military services. In old days they used to guard the royal treasure along with Rajput coworkers. Physically in general, Chaukidar Meenas were tall, handsome, well build and courageous and brave people.

They were one of the biggest threat to the British government in North India because they used to loot Britishers and local rulers and murdered some British officers who used to harassed poor people. and participated during the mutiny of 1857 against the British government, therefore, the British government declared them criminal tribes and imposed some regulations after this those who didn't use to do farming started doing farming like jamidar Meena.

In present time chaukidars are also landlords equally well off like jamidars.

The largest population clan in Chaukidar Meenas is Kanwat, Bhorayat, Bagari, Jhirwal, khoda, Jeph, and Mantwal.
