Rajgarh is a guaranteed bhumiat of Dhar. The bhumia of Rajgarh holds one village and three Bhil hamlets from Dhar, two villages directly from the British government, and two other villages from Indore. In 1867, Indore and Dhar pressed their claims on the villages of Rajgarh and Dhar, but the Government of India decided that the bhumia should enjoy complete authority in those villages.
In 1886 and 1903, the Government of India recognised the right of the government of Dhar to exercise jurisdiction in the guaranteed thakurats and bhumiats subordinate to it. Upon this right being recognised, the government of Dhar conceded limited civil and criminal jurisdictional powers to the estate holders deemed capable of exercising them, Rajgarh included.
