Saṃvidvyatikrama (संविद्व्यतिक्रम) refers to “nonpayment of wages”, 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.

Saṃvidvyatikrama is mentioned in the following sources as one of the eighteen vyavahārapadas: the Arthaśāstra (3.16.38), the Manusmṛti (8.4-7) and the Yājñavalkyasmṛti (2.5).
