KAHN SINGH ATARIVALA (d. 1873), soldier and jdgirddr, was the second son of Sham Singh Alarivala, the celebrated general of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. He inherited only a small part of the jdgir of his father, subject to the maintenance of 97 horse, 25 foot and 10 zamburds. His contingent was assigned in 1848 to serving Raja Sher Singh Atarivala at Multan in 1848, but it left the Raja when the latter moved northwards to join his father, Chatar Singh, against the British.

Twenty-five of his horsemen remained with the Raja while the rest marched back with Shamsher Singh Sandharivalia. Kahn Singh`s dlwan, Narain Singh, supplied provisions and carriage to the British army at Ganda Singhvala and Kasur. For his loyalty to the British Kahn Singh was allowed to keep his jdgirs after the annexation of the Punjab. He died in 1873.
