ploughing or allowing others to plough (the lands in the aforementioned village) as he might wish so long as the moon and the sun endure. This grant should always be protected, honoured and consented to by future rulers whether of Our family or others, who should be afraid of falling into the deep vale of evil deeds and apprehensive of the agonies caused by falling into the hell Avīchi, terrible with thousands of sparks of burning fire.

..Whoever, with his mind clouded by the mass of the darkness of ignorance, would confiscate this gift or would allow it to be confiscated, would incur the five major sins together with the minor ones.

...(Line 72) And it has been declared by the holy Vedavyasa :—
...(Here follow twelve benedictory and imprecatory verses.)

.. (Line 85) The Mahāmaṇḍalēśvara, the illustrious king Aparājitadēvā records his approval of the grant as detailed above by the hand of the scribe.

.. “This has been approved by Me, the illustrious King Aparajitadeva”.

.. (V. 46) While the illustrious Amātya named Ammaṇaiya is in office with the approval of the king who is the hero of heroes, and while the illustrious Jhañjhamaiya is holding the office of the Minister for Peace and War, Uddāma, born in the family of the Kāyasthas, who is a son of Chakkaiya, has indeed written this charter approved by all for the Kramavid Kōlama.

.. (V. 47) Whatever is written or not written here, whether proper or improper, whether (explicitly) stated or not, whether good or bad—all that should be regarded as authoritative at all times.


..THESE plates were found together with those of Set I by one Bala Tukaram, while digging in the court-yard of his house at Chikhala-pākhāḍī, a part of Muruḍ-Janjirā in the Kolābā District of Māhārāshtra. They were sold to the Baroda Museum through the efforts of Prof. H.D. Velankar of the Wilson College, Bombay. They have since been deposited in that Museum. Mr. A.S. Gadre of the Archaeological Department, Baroda State, edited both the sets in the Important Inscriptions from the Baroda State, Vol. I, pp. 35 f. Mr. Gadre’s transcript of the inscription is accompanied by the facsimiles of only the second sides of the second and third plates. I edit the plates here from fresh impressions obtained through the kindness of the Curator of the Baroda Museum.

.. The copper-plates, three in number, are slightly smaller in size than those of Set I. They measure each 23.50 cm. by 17.78 cm. They were held together by a ring passing through a hole at the centre of the top of each plate. The ring and the seal which must have been soldered to it are not forthcoming now,. The ends of the plates are made slightly thicker for the protection of the writing, which is still in an excellent state of preservation. The first plate is inscribed on one side only, and the second and third plates on both the sides. The record consists of 100 lines[1], of which twenty-five are inscribed on the first plate, twenty lines on each side of the second plate and nineteen and sixteen on the first and second side respectively of the third plate. The engraving is bold and carefully done.

.. The characters are of the Nāgarī alphabet and resemble those of Set I, The language

[1] Gadre has wrongly given the number of lines as 99. He has not counted 1. 34.
