KAHLÚR, also called Biláspur, one of the petty hill states in the Punjab, India, lying between 31° 12′ 30″ and 31° 35′ 45″ N. lat., and between 76° 26′ and 76° 58′ E. long. The area is 448 square miles, and the estimated population 60,000. The principal products are opium and grain; woollen goods are manufactured. The estimated revenue is about £10,000. The Gurkhas overran the country in the early part of the century, and expelled the rájá, who was, however, reinstated by the British in 1815.
