This Order was established by Maharaja Sir Jagatjit Singh in 1898 as an order of merit, which was organized into 3 classes and awarded to State Officials and members of the Kapurthala Royal Family.
In 1914, the Order was reorganized into a single class, with the 2nd and 3rd class being replaced by the Order of Pride (see IND246). As a single class, this Order was conferred in recognition of outstanding service. It was only awarded to members of the Kapurthala Family or other Princes.
