(1901), 137,554, showing a decrease of 24% in the decade due to the effects of famine; estimated revenue, 20,000; tribute £4600. The chief, who is descended from the old Gond royal family, received the title of raja as an hereditary distinction in 1898. The state includes a fertile plain, yielding rice and cotton.
