*Thind is the most prominent clan name found among the Kamboj people living in Greater Punjab. The Thind Kambojs are well known in the areas of agriculture, military, sports and Punjabi literature. Thinds are numerously found as Sikhs, Hindus and the Muslims. The great patriot, soldier, saint and spiritual missionary of twentieth century, Dr Bhagat Singh Thind [] , Ex Deputy Chief Minister of Panjab, Sardar Balwant Singh Thind, Ex Finance Minister, Sardar Atma Singh Thind ,Ex Minister Dr Upinderjit Kaur Thind and S. Tarsem Singh Thind(Chief Engineer PSEB) are some of the well known Thinds of recent past. The world-famous Olympian Sardar Prithipal Singh, a field hockey fullback, was also a Thind. World renowned scientist of Biological Sciences Dr Kartar Singh (Panjab University Chandigarh) and the foremost Panjabi intellectual and writer Dr Karnail Singh (Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar) are also Thinds.

*Thind clan name is also said to exist in two villages in Ludhiana district belonging to the Jatt brotherhood. In fact, these so-called "Jatt Thinds" are believed to have initially been Kamboj and, at a point in time in not too distant past, they shifted from the tribal domain into caste domain under social, geographical and temporal exigencies and therefore, they eventually merged into the greater Jatt brotherhood. There are many Kamboj clan names which overlap with those from the Jatt brotherhood-- "again for similar reasons". Besides with the Jatts, numerous Kamboj clan names also overlap with other occupational castes like the Rajputs, Kshatriyas, Brahmins, Sainis, Arains etc ---"again for similar reasons".
