Kharsawan is a city and a notified area in Seraikela Kharsawan district in the Indian state of Jharkhand. Kharsawan (also spelt as Kharsuan) was founded around 1650. It was one of the Oriya Princely states of India during the period of the British Raj, and its last ruler signed the accession to India after India gained independence. The major language spoken in this area is Oriya. It is now a part of Jharkhand state and one of its districts is named Seraikela Kharsawan district. Kumar Aditya Narayan Singh Deo and his father Maharaj Kumar Rudra Pratap Singh Deo appreciated the name change of the district. The Maharaja of Darbhanga used to visit this state to pay respects as the trade route to the east coast ran through the thick jungles of Singhbhum and safety was guaranteed only to those who were in the good books. The title of Raja was granted to Kharsawan rulers in 1902, beginning with Raja Ram Chandra Singh Deo. The state had a privy purse of 33,000 Rs. The present head of the royal family is Raja Pradeep Chandra Singh Deo.
