Sushil Kumar Kaul Arazbegi says "Arazbegi" is not a surname. This designation during the Maharaja's rule in J & K state referred to the senior officer who would present the peoples petitions(araz)to the maharaja for his consideration - in present day times it would be more like the Secretary to maharaja. The first Arazbegi was Pt. Ramji Laul & it was a mere coincidence that his second son Pt. Raja Kaul (1825 to 1900 AD)later also became an "Arazbegi" & also headed CID Police. Pt. Raja Kaul was a great literary scholar & his book of persian poetry "Diwan -e- Diary" was published by Cultural Academy, Govt. of J&K a rare collection of persian poetry eminating from Kashmir. Pt. Raja Kaul was a Chess champion of his times & besides had interests in astrology & sign languages. He invented a sign language called "Abjad". The "Arazbegi" family house is at Sathu, Barbarshah (on the bund)- this is the only arazbegi family in Kashmir & besides the one there are no other Arazbegi families in J&K . The surname of the Arazbegi family is Kaul & the gotra is "Dattatriya".
