JAI SIṄGH KAMLĀ (d. 1827) served, like his father Uttam Siṅgh, under the Bhaṅgī chief, Gulāb Siṅgh, on whose death in 1800 he joined Raṇjīt Siṅgh, who had occupied Lahore barely a year earlier. Jai Siṅgh was a good soldier and took part in many of the Mahārājā's campaigns. As a reward, he was granted jāgīrs in Sheikhūpurā district. In 1817, when he was too old for active service, he was appointed a judge at Amritsar.

         Jai Siṅgh died in 1827. Of his sons, Maṅgal Siṅgh had been killed fighting against the Nawāb of Mankerā in October 1821. His second son, Jaimal Siṅgh, rose to be a commandant in the Chāryārī Horse.
