Introduction / History

The Kamboj of Haryana speak Haryanvi and Hindi. They read and write in Devanagari. They are not vegetarians who eat wheat. Birth and marriage rituals take place and the dead are cremated. The divorced and bereaved can marry again depending on the age of them. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. They are landowners and work mostly in agriculture. They are reasonably well educated and use modern medicines and family planning. Hinduism is their religion.

In Uttarh Pradesh the Kamboj speak Hindi and read and write in Devanagari. Divorce is allowed within the first two years of marriage. Many work on the land, in business, for the government and for others. They have a caste council to look after them. There are Hindus, Muslims and Sikhs among them.
