JĪVAN SIṄGH CHHĀCHHĪ (d. 1852), son of Uttam Siṅgh, a Kohlī Khatrī, was a military commander in Sikh times. His father and grandfather had also served under Mahārājā Raṇjīt Siṅgh. Jīvan Siṅgh's contingent, consisting of sixty-five horse, five zambūrās or camel-swivels, and a kettledrum, was known all along the north-western frontier for its swift movement. He served at Bannū, Ṭonk, Miṭṭhā Ṭiwāṇā, Peshāwar and Jamrūd. For about eight years, he was stationed at Ḍerā Ismā'īl Khān where he had to face the hostility of the border tribes. He took part in the two Anglo-Sikh wars. He died on 22 September 1852.
