Katodia is a village and former non-salute Rajput princely state on Saurashtra peninsula in Gujarat, western India.


It was a single village[1] princely state in Gohelwar prant, under Gohel Rajput[1] Chieftains.

It had a population of 347 in 1901, yielding a state revenue of 3,000 Rupees (mostly from land; 1903–4) and paying 221 Rupees tribute to the Gaekwar Baroda State and Junagadh State.[1] It was the lowliest of the princely states of the British Raj.[2] The talukdar of Katodia got a privy purse of just Rs 192 which was the lowest among all the former princely state rulers.[3][2][4]

During the British Raj, the petty state was under the colonial Eastern Kathiawar Agency.
