KATHIAWAR AGENCY 1822 - 1924

Kathiawar (or Saurashtra) is the peninsula or western portion of the province of Gujarat, Bombay. Its area is about 60,722.55 kmē and the population is 2,645,805 (1901). Of these totals, an area of about 3,224.55 kmē, with 173,436 persons, belongs to the Maharaja of Baroda; about 3,361.82 kmē, with 128,559 persons, belong to Ahmadabad District, and about 51.8 kmē, with 14,614 persons, belong to the Portuguese possession of Diu, while the remainder (an area of 54084.38 kmē and a population of 2,329,196) is the territory forming the Political Agency subordinate to the Government of Bombay, established in 1822, having under its control 193 separate States. The Kathiawar Agency is divided for administrative purposes into four prants or divisions — Jhalawar, Halar, Sorath, and Gohelwar — and the States have since 1863 been arranged in seven classes. The first-class States number 8, second-class 6, third-class 8, fourth-class 9, fifth-class 16, sixth-class 30, seventh-class 5, and the remaining 111 are combined into thana circles. Of these states, fourteen exercised independent jurisdiction, while the rest were to varying degrees under British administration. The headquarters of the political agent (who oversaw the affairs of the princely states on behalf of the Governor-General) was at Rajkot, in the centre of the peninsula.. The estimated gross revenue of the several states was 1,278,000 rupees in 1911; the total tribute (payable to the British, the Gaekwar of Baroda and the Nawab of Junagadh), was 70,000 rupees.
