Dharmashastra (religious law)

[Asvamivikraya in Dharmashastra glossaries]

Asvāmivikraya (अस्वामिविक्रय) refers to “sale without ownership”, and is commonly classified as one of the eighteen vyavahārapada, or “law titles” in the ancient Dharmaśāstras. These vyavahārapadas are categories of ‘legal procedures’ and define a major type of crime for which a person may be tried. The term is derived from vyavahāra (“lawsuits” or “case”) which defines the case between the plaintiff and the defendant, which is often related to social and commercial transactions.

Asvāmivikraya is mentioned in the following sources as one of the eighteen vyavahārapadas: the Arthaśāstra (3.16.38), the Manusmṛti (8.4-7), the Yājñavalkyasmṛti (2.5) and the Nāradasmṛti (mātṛkā 1.30).
