Nallā is the name of a tax meaning “tax on cattle”, according to [medieval] temple inscriptions.—When lands were made over to temples as devadāna by kings, chieftains or other local residents, the temple became entitled to collect all the tax [viz., Nallā] from that land. In return the temple also had responsibilities towards that land. It is also known as Narpaśu, Narkiḍā or Nallerudu.
