The Kachwaha are a group or a community that has originated in India. Generally, they were a peasant community who were considered as Shudras (lower caste people). Nonetheless, they were skilled agriculturalists.
In the late 20th century, Kachwaha or Kushwaha people began claiming that they were a Rajput clan. They stated that they were descents from Kusha, a son of mythological avatar of lord Vishnu, Rama.
This enabled their claim to be of the Suryavansh Dynasty but it is just a myth that originated in the 20th century.
