Abhyantara-siddhi.—(IE 8-5; EI 20, 22), same as ābhyantara-siddhi; internal income or revenue, or taxes payable to the village authorities as against those payable to the king; cf. tribhoga-abhyantara-siddhi, bāhy-ābhyantara-siddhi, bāhy- ābhyantara-adāya; also sarv-ābhyantara-siddhi (EI 20), and antaḥ- siddhika (CII 4), a privilege of the donee of rent-free land. According to some (CII 4), it refers to the privilege of the donee offering full power of adjudication in law-suits. But expressions like tribhoga-abhyantara-siddhi (q. v.) render it doubtful. See bāhya, siddhi, siddha-aya. Note: abhyantara-siddhi is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
