Bhūmi-cchidra-nāyena.—or ºcchidra-pidhāna-vyāyena, ‘in accor- dance with the principle of cultivating the land for the first time and enjoying it free of taxes as a result’. The word chidra in the first means ‘cultivation’ and chidra-pidhāna in the second ‘reclamation of uncultivable land for the first time.’ Some- times vidhāna is wrongly used for pidhāna. See Ind. Ep., pp. 397-98. Note: bhūmi-cchidra-nāyena is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
