PREDECESSORS AND SHORT HISTORY: The
state of Jashpur was ceded to the British Government by the provisional
agreement concluded with Mudhoji Bhonsle in 1818. Although noticed in
the
second part of this agreement as a separate state, it was at first
treated
as a fief of Surguja to some measure. The relations of the chief are
regulated
by the provisions of the sanad granted in 1899 and later
reissued
in 1905. The Raja maintains a military force of 2 guns (in 1893).
