Came across more information 

Names of some Dals

1. Misal Shaheedan Tarna Dal
2. Ranghreta Dal
3. Panth Akali Guru Nanak Dal  Marrianwal
4. Bidhi Chand Tarna Dal. 

Baba Bidhi Chand Sampardai was organized in 1929. The Nihangs identified with Bidhi Chand, a devout follower of the sixth Guru of the Sikhs, are confined to village Sur Singh in Punjab’s Tarn Taran district to which he belonged.

Headquarters of each Dal

Buddha Dal headquarters is located at the Talwandi Ber Sahib Gurdwara.

Whereas the Tarna Dal headquarters is at Baba Bakala. 

The Nihang Tarna Dal is self-governing. The headquarter is located in Harian Belan, Bajraur, 10 km from Hoshiarpur near Chabbewal (Harian means green and Belan are vines). The Gurudwara Harian Belan is administered by the Nihangs of the Tarna Dal.

There are more than 30 factions of Nihangs in Punjab, big and small. 

Panth Akali Guru Nanak Dal  Marrianwal has a facebook https://m.facebook.com/pg/Akaal.shayee/posts/?ref=page_internal&mt_nav=0

Also, Baba Bidhi Chand Dal published a booklet on the history of the Dal, which you can download in the link

BUDDHA DAL and the Taruna Dal, names now appropriated by two sections of the Nihang Sikhs, were the popular designations of the two divisions of the Dal Khalsa, the confederated army of the Sikhs during the eighteenth century. With the execution of Banda Singh Bahadur in 1716, the Sikhs were deprived of a unified command. Moreover, losses suffered by the Sikhs during the anti-Banda Singh campaign around Gurdaspur and the relentless persecution that followed at the hands of 'Abd usSamad Khan, governor of Lahore, made it impossible for the Sikhs to continue largescale combined operations. Hunted out of their homes, they scattered into small jathas (groups) to find refuge in distant hills, forests and deserts, but they were far from vanquished.
