The Founders


Year of establishment of the village Ramawas Khurd is not clear, however, as per baiye-khatas maintained by Bhats it is assumed to be around 1500 A.D. The conglomeration as village might have taken at a later period as population grew and people from different caste systems weaved a structure for self sustenance through other business and barter system.

In earlier days, the commodity trading was typically through barter only and coins or currency was hardly used for service exchanges.
