Jodhpur

MoD orders probe into land `scam’ in Jodhpur - The Times of India
Already grappling with scams like Adarsh, Sukna, Malad and Srinagar, the defence ministry has now ordered an inquiry into another land scandal in Jodhpur, which revolves around the transfer of 4.84 acres of defence land worth almost Rs 16 crore to a private trust.
[...]
The allegation is that the 4.84-acre defence land, located in the heart of the city, was transferred to a private trust belonging to a royal family of Jodhpur in 2007 without requisite government orders or approvals. The transfer was apparently done on the basis that the plot concerned constituted ``excess land''.

Patiala

Capt. Amarinder Singh trying Hattrick from Patiala
PPCC chief, Ex Chief minister, descendant of Patiala royal family and MLA of Patiala for two consecutive times - Capt. Amarinder Singh is contesting to achieve hat trick from here in upcoming assembly elections. The Patiala assembly seat in Punjab is one of the most important assembly seats as Amarinder Singh is seeking re-election from here on a Congress ticket.
While the Ex-Chief Minister, pitted against Surjit Singh Kohli of the SAD, is busy campaigning for his party candidates in other parts of the state, the task of garnering support for him has been taken up by his family members led by woman power -- his MP wife Preneet Kaur, daughter Jai Inder Kaur, as his daughter-in-law Rishma Singh is busy in campaigning for her husband Raninder Singh Tikku in neighbouring assembly constituency Samana.

Struggling royals cast off their jewels - India - DNA
A first-of-its-kind auction of “unusual jewellery” by Bid & Hammer tomorrow in Bangalore will see 138 lots of such items going under the hammer. While estimates for the pieces sourced from Rajasthan, Central India (MP and Chhattisgarh), and the old Nizamshahi (AP and some parts of Karnataka and Maharashtra) start from Rs15,000 and go up to Rs75 lakh, many expect the auction to collect many times over.
[...]
A member of the Shekhawati royal family in Rajasthan told DNA, “Most people assume royals are well-off. But nothing could be further from the truth. With the abolition of the privy purse and the absence of any income in the form of revenue, maintaining palaces, temples and their lifestyles has become very difficult.”

Saif Ali Khan
Saif Ali Khan and Amrita Singh’s young and beautiful daughter Sara Ali Khan is seen for the first time on a magazine cover.
The young girl looks confident as she stands next to her elegant mom for the Hello magazine’s January issue. [...]
Both Amrita and Sara have worn dresses by Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla since they are part of the magazine’s special story on celebrity mother-daughters, who swear by the designer duo famous for their rich ethnic designs.
Amrita takes pride as she shares about her sweet 16-year-old daughter. While talking to a tabloid, she says, “Sara is a bright student of Science, and like all good students, aspires to be a doctor.” And that “she could also turn out to be a sharp lawyer.”Amrita also worries about Sara’s next two years which are going to be critical as she will finally decide on her career.

Faridkot

In Faridkot, two families stay away from election hullabaloo - Indian Express
The royal family of Faridkot and the family of former president Giani Zail Singh have chosen to stay away from all election hullabaloo associated with the January 30 polls.
These families, once influential, were not heard of during the elections so much so that Maharani Mehtab Kaur Sahiba — the lone surviving heir of Maharaja Harinder Singh Brar, the last king of Faridkot — did not even come to the city to cast her vote.

Balangir

Royals rule the roost in Balangir campaigning - The Times of India
Royals of Balangir are out to strengthen their grassroots base with members flunging themselves headlong into campaigning for the panchayat polls. This time the royal canvassing is significant because young turks of the blue-blooded clan are also on the trail.
[...]
In 2009, five members of the Balangir royal family contested the parliamentary and assembly elections, while seven others campaigned for them. Prakriti Devi, wife of Sree Vardhan Singhdeo, who is the younger brother of KV, was the MLA candidate for BJD from Patnagarh in the last election. She was contesting against her brother-in-law K V Singhdeo. Her mother-in-law Premalata Singhdeo and sister-in-law Mitrabandha Panwar were campaigning for her. Premalata is the wife of erstwhile king Rajraj Singhdeo.
