paṭṭī (पट्टी).—f (S) A strip, slip, shred; a narrow and long piece (of cloth, metal, wood &c.) 2 A slip (of ground or land.) 3 A clamp. 4 A roll or list of a general collection, as by Government from a village; of a general contribution for a charitable or other purpose; of an assessment, amercement, or exaction in general. Note. The idea of Roll or list being dropped, paṭṭī comes to signify simply Cess or tax (the subject-matter of the roll); and, with the designating noun prefixed, forms compounds quite numberless. The examples subjoined therefore, and the few instances occurring in marginal order, are as specimens only; but they will be accepted as ample:--khārī- paṭṭī Cess to defray the expenses of a jaunt or an excursion of the Raja or other grandee; pālakhī- paṭṭī Exaction, for a service, of the palkhis of the people; gōsāvīpaṭṭī Cess to meet the wants of a swarm of Gosavis arrived at a village; khuśālapaṭṭī Cess to defray the expenses of some festal occasion (as the birth of a son &c.); lagnapaṭṭī Cess to pay a marriage; kērapaṭṭī Cess to pay the sweepers entertained for a village, or for an occasion; kōmbaḍī- paṭṭī Exaction of fowls or a fowl; black mail; ghara- paṭṭī, jhāḍapaṭṭī, mhaisapaṭṭī Tax upon houses, trees, buffaloes &c. &c. 5 The paper containing the list of a general assessment or collection or contribution. 6 A fold, plait, ply, ruffle (as of a turban &c.) 7 A roll (of the betel-leaf &c.) 8 A division of a village; a part, a quarter, a region. 9 The front-portion of a side of the hair of women as combed smoothly towards the two sides and divided by a line in the middle. 10 The flowered or ornamental edge (of a garment or cloth), the border. 11 A string of flowers. See under turā. 12 A line or row (of the doctors and literati) in a sabhā, as assembled to chant the Veda &c.: also a row of Brahmans at a meal. 13 With paṭṭī, in a humorously figurative application of the fourth sense, very numerous compounds occur, all bearing the general import of Vehement vituperation or scolding. See khaḍasapaṭṭī, kharaḍapaṭṭī, jhāḍapaṭṭī, bhōsaḍapaṭṭī, phōdalapaṭṭī, dhūḷapaṭṭī, udhaḷapaṭṭī, bhādarapaṭṭī, jhavarapaṭṭī, ghasarapaṭṭī. paṭṭī kāḍhaṇēṃ g. of o.
