Aim of this paper is to highlights the Rajput Policy of Akbar and Aurangzeb. Mughal emperor Akbar implemented many policies during his reign, which also included 'The Rajput Policy'. Abul Fazl says that in order “to soothe the mind of the zamidars, he entered into matrimonial relation with them”. In course of time, Akbar expanded and elaborated this policy. The Rajputs were the greatest obstacle in his pursuance of policy against the Hindus. Aurangzeb attempted to destroy the power of the Rajputs and annex their kingdoms. The mutual relations of the Mughals and the Rajputs have a great importance in the history of the Mughal period.
