Khilchipur State was a princely state in India. The seat was in Khilchipur. It had an area of 710 square kilometres (273 sq mi), and a population of 31,143 in 1901. Its estimated revenue in 1911 was 70000 rupees, and it paid a yearly tribute to the Maharaja Scindia of Gwalior of 700 rupees.


Founded in 1544 by Dewan Ugra Sen, a Khichi Rajput, a section of the great Chauhan clan, who was forced by family dissensions to migrate from the Khichi capital of Gagraun. A grant of land was subsequently made to him by the Mughal Emperor, which included the adjoining Zirapur and Machalpur parganas, later a part of Indore State, and Shujalpur, later in Gwalior State.

Khilchipur was formerly the capital of this princely state, under the Bhopal Agency of British India's Central India Agency. Its rulers were Khichi Rajputs of the Chauhan clan. The rulers acceded to the Government of India after India's independence in 1947, and the Khilchipur became part of the new state of Madhya Bharat. Madhya Bharat was merged into Madhya Pradesh on 1 November 1956.[1]


The rulers of Khilchipur were titled "Rao Bahadur" from ca 1870 until 1928.[2]
