Best Answer

Ghirth is a separate caste, they want to step up in social hierarchy that's why they want to be called as Jatts. but they are different.

According to a legend, the Ghirths are so called because the Hindu god Shiva made them out of ghee (ghrita in Sanskrit). This etymology is reflective of the community's traditional occupation of animal husbandry and agriculture. However, some members of the community trace their ancestry to a sage called Ghrit Rishi, and claim connections to the legendary Kauravas mentioned in the Mahabharata. The community also claims descent from the Rajput Kshatriyas.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Ghirths were the dominant low-caste cultivators and marginal landholders in the Himachal region. Since they were considered as a 'clean' (not untouchable) low caste, they were employed as domestic servants by the higher castes: their 'clean' status allowed them to perform tasks such as fetching water or cleaning cooking utensils, which the untouchable servants were not allowed to do. Nevertheless, the Rajput, who were the dominant landholding caste of the region, had imposed social restrictions on them. Around 1926, the Ghirths started a movement to achieve upward social mobility, and started opposing these restrictions. They refused menial work, creating difficulties for the higher castes that earlier employed them as servants.

Ghirths is another caste of Himachal Pradesh. They just want to appear higher and to do so they are trying to align themselves with Jatts but this information is not correct.

This is just a utopian fantasy of them :D

Ghirth is a low caste. Some of them are doing Propaganda to lift themselves, which is not wrong but to mix up with another caste is totally a wrong doing.

By proclaiming themselves as Jatts, they are just showing their insecurities and losing respect in society.

They migrated from Haryana & Rajasthan, they are not Jatt, But Certainly have strong bodily strength and stamina(few scholar consider them as jatt due language and cultural similarity) they are largest contributor of indian army from HP, they have big role in making kangra a Bir bhumi.

Certainly economically they are not as strong as Jatt of Plain reason may be scarcity of land and climate. this also apply to brahmin and rajput who indulge in meat eating, Alcoholism and polyandry. Thus all caste of hills are socially and economically backward than their counterpart in plains.

Many scholars consider the Ghirth to be Jats This is supported by the fact that during the initial days of Sikhism and even well into the late 1800s, the eldest sons of many Ghirth families became Sikh warriors, a common practice among Jats. A large number of Ghirth currently serve in the defence forces.

Ghrit is a agricultural caste living in the Kangra valley of Himachal Pradesh. They are Honest, brave and hard working race. originally they were migrated from Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh. Many Jat websites and JATs historian of Rajasthan and Haryana associated them with JAT tribe and also reflecting the same on their website and it is true that Ghrit are JAT like Anjana and Ror, However, they are not directly associated with JAT, but in future they will certainly associated with them. However, some idiots of a so called caste (maximum of them are become Fake (Farzi) Rajputs from other caste) are misinforming that they are lower caste, so kindly visit to any place in Kangra and ask about ghrit, they are not a lower caste. This is a peace loving community but it does mean that they are weaks.

हिमाचल में जाट गोत्र: हिमाचल में जाट समुदाय में आने वाली कई गोत्र हैं। इनमें गिल, माहल, मान, बराड़, कौंडल, कोंडल, सयाल, रियार, कंग, रंधावा, संधू, सिद्दू, सहोता, भाटी, खैरे, बादल, चावला, कांगरी, नेरा, भक्कल, दयाल, काहलों, नंदा, बैंस, डढवाल, रियालच व बग्गा आदि हैं।

हिमाचल के जाटों का इतिहास: जहां तक जाटों के इतिहास का सवाल है, तो यह क्षत्रिय वर्ण के हैं। महाभारत काल में हिमाचल के जनपदों का जिक्र मिलता है। उस समय कुलूत (मौजूदा कुल्लू), और त्रिगर्त (अब कांगड़ा)) का जिक्र है। इसी तरह कुलिंडा का भी वर्णन है, यह क्षेत्र अब शिमला के पहाड़ी इलाके और सिरमौर के नाम से विख्यात हैं। चंबा-पठानकोट तक क्रमशः गब्दिका और औडुंबरा के नाम से जाने जाते थे। उक्त समुदाय के लोग मूल रूप से क्षत्रिय हैं। बाद में इन्हीं में से एक वर्ग अलग होकर जाट कहलाया। कद-काठी में बेहद आकर्षक-मजबूती इन्हें औरों से अलग बनाती है। महाराजा रणजीत सिंह की सुरक्षा गार्द का खास हिस्सा रहे जाट वीर हरि सिंह नलवा ने उनके राज्य की सीमा को अफगानिस्तान से लेकर बर्मा तक पहुंचाने में अहम रोल अदा किया। ब्रिटिश काल में इस वर्ग के लोगों ने दहेज और सती प्रथा का हर मंच से विरोध किया। बहरहाल हिमाचली जाट विभिन्न क्षेत्रों में देश-दुनिया में देवभूमि का नाम रोशन कर रहे हैं।
