List of Jat clans compiled by census takers for 1911 census of India.

This article is simply a reference point for anyone interested in the distribution of Jats tribes in the Punjab province of Pakistan, prior to the huge changes brought about by partition.

Please note that appearance of the particular tribe as Jat in the list does not in itself confirm that the tribe is Jat or otherwise. Identity tends to change with time, and some groups on the list may no longer wish to be considered as Jats.

The list is ordered by administrative divisions, starting with the Lahore Division, and only refers to Muslim Jats.
