Avisaṃvāda (अविसंवाद) [=Avisaṃvādaka?] refers to “(that which is) reliable”, according to the Īśvarapratyabhijñāvivṛtivimarśinī 2.161.—Accordingly, “[...] Therefore what [we] call an inference is [not just any] conceptualization, [but only one] that consists in a means of [valid] knowledge since it is reliable (avisaṃvādaka), [and one] that concerns an object possessed of a specific time and place, [therefore being] fit to be [something on which] an activity [is exerted]”.
