Introduction / History

The Jaiswal of Delhi are mainly Hindus. They eat wheat and rice. Marriages are usually by discussion and a dowry is given. Marrying again is allowed. On the death of the father, sons inherit the property with the oldest son becoming in charge of the home. There are birth and marriage rituals. The dead are cremated. Business and trading is their main work. They believe in education, modern medicine and family planning.

In Rajasthan the Jaiswal follow the Jainism religion. They speak Khadiboli and Marwari and read and write in Devanagari. They are vegetarians. Divorce and widows marrying again are not allowed.

In Madhya Pradesh, Jainism is the religion they follow. They speak Hindi.
