RAM SINGH NURPURIA, an associate of Bhai Maharaj Singh in his revolt against the British, was the son of Shiam Singh alias Shiama, a Pathania Rajput and Wazir or minister to Raja Bir Singh, chief of Nurpur, 25 km east of Pathankot (32° 18`N, 75° 40`E), a feudatory of the Sikh kingdom of Lahore since 1802. Nurpur had been annexed by Maharaja Ranjit Singh in January 1816 on account of the failure of its chief to attend the general review of the army held at Sialkot in October of the previous year and his failure to pay the mulct imposed for his default. Bir Singh took refuge in British territory.
