State in old Rajputana (3)
I believe the answer is:
'state' is the definition.
'in old rajputana' is the wordplay.
'in' indicates a hidden word.
'PUT' is hidden in the letters of 'old rajputana'.
(Other definitions for put that I've seen before include "Place in a location" , "Place, lay" , "Place; placed" , "Set (in place)" , "Place in a position" .)
