According to Atkinson (Himalayan Districts), the 90 % population of Bith or Savarn (Upper Caste Claus) was from Khas castes. The Atkinson report stated that only 10% Brahmin and Rajput were pure among Bith/ Savran. Today, there is no difference between Khasiya and Rajput. In census of 1865, there were Khursiya, Khasiya as Khas; Chhatri, Thakur or Rajput as Rajput. Harijan were called as Domeor Muslim.
There were tens of Khas sub groups. Their sir name (Jati) was derived from their villages. There were Khas Brahmin and Khas Rajput. Therefore, there was no much cultural differences between Khas Brahmin and Khas Rajput. The Khas Brahmin used to marry with daughters of Khas Rajput as was seen a few years back in jaunsar, Jaunpur, Ravain, Taknaur, and Nagpur regions.
Khas were old inhabitants or original inhabitants of Garhwal. Khas used to marry their daughters with upper caste Rajput and Brahmins migrated from other parts of India to Garhwal.
As far as Bijnor and Haridwar districts are concerned, after separating from Shah /Pal regime, Khas of Bijnor and Haridwar lost their identity and blended with other castes. Still, at the bordering line of Garhwal -Bijnor and Haridwar-Garhwal; the Khas Shilpkar or Khas Rajput /Brahmin live there.
