The Sardars of Shahkot and Dhandowal are Badecha Jats, and are descended from the same ancestor Chaudhary Amrika, a resident of Dhianpur, Amritsar. About one hundred and fifty years ago he settled in Kang and inherited the property of his mother’s father. Amrika’s sons Sujan Singh (who was killed at the capture of Nakodar), Man Singh and Dan Singh became members of Lara Singhs band, and were given villages about Shahkot, Bopara and Raipur Bahia, in Nakodar, and some in Dharamkot, Mari and Tihara, to the south of the Satlaj. On the break-up of the Dalawala Confederacy the descendants of Dan Singh seem to have been completely despoiled ; but those of Sujan Singh and Man Singh retained part of Shahkot and Dharamkot on submitting to Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

This grant was changed to a conquest jagir in 185S.The family of Dan Singh live in Shahkot, where they own Jagir.
