He was born in the village Khanlyglar. Chingiz Dilbazi was an educated man, had a good mastery of Russian. He was one of the highly re- spected people in old Gazakh. He may be considered one of the first noblemen to do busi- ness. Besides the lands and livestock farm in Khanlyglar Chingiz aga also owned shops and houses in Gazakh. As a man of wealth he was engaged in charity. In 1918-1920 yy. he provided support and assistance to the refugees who fled to the Erivan province (Nowadays Yerevan Armenia). He opened the doors of his store house and handed out the wheat.

Though some communist did consider Chingiz aga to be a secret an enemy of the Soviet power the punitive bodies dared not arrest him because of his high respect among the refugees and the local poor.
