Jind State (also spelled Jhind State) was a princely state located in the Punjab region of north-western India. The state was 3,260 km2 (1,260 sq mi) in area and its annual income was Rs.3,000,000 in the 1940s.
The Jind State was founded in 1763. It was part of the Cis-Sutlej states until 25 April 1809, when it became a British protectorate. On 20 August 1948, with the signing of the instrument of accession, Jind became a part of the Patiala and East Punjab States Union. Jind town and district now form a part of Indian state of Haryana.
Postage stamps prior to King George V consisted of Indian stamps over printed as "Jhind State", with the letter 'H' in the name. On the George V stamps, the 'H' is omitted and is overprinted as "Jind State" (Reference actual stamps from the Victorian, Edward VII and George V eras).
