It seems likely that you are referring to the rank "Jemedar" ( also spelt "jamadar") which is a rank for junior commissioned officers (JCO).   JCOs, who were known as Viceroy's Commissioned Officers during the time of the Raj, were roughly equivalent to warrant officers in the British and other Western armies.  Apparently the  use of "jemadar" has been discontinued, and "subedar" (sometimes spelt "subadar") is now used in its place.  

There are three ranks of JCOs.  The article below may be useful.
