Rithala, known in the past as Lathi Wala, was established by Rana Rajpal Singh of Sumal Gotra of Tomar

The village has a protected water supply in addition to tube wells and hand pumps. In recent years due to a
small scale industry and real estate price boom the village has become very congested leading to a slight
