In Pakistan and India, a Jagir was a small territory granted by the ruler to an army chieftain in fairly short terms usually of three years but not extending beyond his lifetime, in recognition of his military service. The grantee of the jagir, called a Jagirdar, was in effect the ruler of that region and substantial income that was earned (taxes, etc.) from this region went to the owner to maintain his family and his troops. The "jagirdar" would live at court in Delhi, keeping up his rank and appearing twice a day before the emperor; consequently the "jagirdar" preferred to receive his share of the dues from the estates in coin rather than in kind.
