FAZALDAD KHAN CHIB (d. 1864), son of Raja Umar Khan Chib, was recipient of a pension of rupees four thousand from Maharaja Ranjit Singh which was originally granted to his elder brother Amir Khan as compensation for the confiscated territory of his father. Fazaldad Khan was taken into service by Prince Kharak Singh to whom the area of Khari Kariali, the territory which had belonged to Fazaldad Khan`s ancestors, was given in jagir. Ten years later some sovars or horsemen were also allowed him. Fazaldad Khan accompanied Sher Singh Atarivala to Multan in 1848, but did not join the rebellion. He died in 1864.
