The Mirdha family of Jodhpur managed the postal system in Marwar, known as Mirdha Dak. The Quaysides (couriers) working under the Mirdhas covered normally 15-20 miles a day but when there was urgency they could 50 to 70 miles a day. Impressed by this feat, Maharaja Bakht Singh gave the Mirdhas the privilege of riding horses (the title of Godha-Quasid), something that was exclusive to the higher classes in those days. On conquering Ahmedabad Maharaja Abhey Singh awarded a village known as Kuchera to the Mirdha family. When Maharaja Bhakt Singh, 1751 A.D., came to power he gave Mangal Ram Mirdha, the then Chief Postal Administrator, the village Silas. An additional gift was made to the Mirdhas by giving them power to collect land revenue up to Rs.500 annually. Raja Man Singh also awarded the grandfather of Shivji Mirdha the right to collect revenue in the village of Bhakrod, Dhudia at Nagaur.
