Sarva-mānya.—(IE 8-5, SITI; CITD), a free tenure; a rent-free holding; land exempted from taxes; lands and villages fully exempt from all taxes. This corresponds to the iṟaiyili class of land mentioned in the Coḻa inscriptions. Often this is associated with aṣṭa-bhoga, i. e. the eight forms of enjoy- ing the land. For a discussion of this form of land tenure, see JAHRS, Vol. X, pp. 123-32. It is noteworthy that even the so-called tax-free (iṟaiyili) lands paid to the king certain dues of the nature of taxes. See K. A. Nilakanta Sastri, The Coḻas, 2nd ed., pp. 534-35. See sarva-namasya, etc. Note: sarva-mānya is defined in the “Indian epigraphical glossary” as it can be found on ancient inscriptions commonly written in Sanskrit, Prakrit or Dravidian languages.
