Krayavikrayānuśaya (क्रयविक्रयानुशय) refers to “cancellation of sale purchase”, 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.

Krayavikrayānuśaya is mentioned in the following sources as one of the eighteen vyavahārapadas: the Manusmṛti (8.4-7). In the Arthaśāstra this is known as Vikrītakrītānuśaya (‘cancellation of purchase or sale’) and in the Yājñavalkyasmṛti and Nāradasmṛti as Krītānuśaya (‘cancellation of purchase’).
