  1. Ranka

    The Ranka are an ethnic group belonging to the Marwari community of Rajasthan. The history of Ranka is related with two key persons. Kaku and Pata were two Goud rajputs, residing in city Vallabhi. When Vallabhi was destroyed, they settled in Marwar. In their 5th generation were Ranka and Banka. Both the brothers were farmers in a village near Pali. When Acharya Shri Jinvallabh Suri arrived in the village they also went to listen the sermon with the villagers. They were impressed and became Jain. As per the instructions of the Acharya they left the farming and started business. They both earned wealth and fame. Acharya Shri Jindutt Suri made them Oswals in VS 1185 and their gotras were named Ranka and Banka. SETH, SETHIA:- Once the king of Sidhpur Pattan needed a loan. These two brothers gave a loan of 65 lacks in golden coins, so the king honoured them with the titles 'SETH' and 'SETHIA' and gave them the right to wear gold crowns. Hence they were named Ranka-Seth and Banka-Sethia. ACCORDING TO MAHAJAN VANSH MUKTAVALI:- One day Acharya Shri Jinvallabh Suri arrived in the cottage of Ranka and Banka for alms. After taking alms the Acharya told them to leave the farming and to do business, and follow Jainism otherwise a snake would bite them, but they did not care.
