Full text of "The Punjab Record"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

EXCISE DEPTL. ORDERS. 



CIRCULAR No. 1 of 1902. 
To 

All Dbputy Commibsioners in th» Punjab. 

Dated 21th January 1902. 

It 18 notified, for general information, that the Charas Manual (printed in 
the year 1897) is, with the approval of Government, superseded by Eections VII 
and IX of the Pifeliminary Edition of the Revised Excise Pamphlet, Part I. 
The sections of the Excise Pamphlet in question have been, and are being, 
oorrected so as to contain all requisite information, but no correction of the 
copies of the Charas Manual, which were distributed in the Province, will any 
longer be attempted, as these Manuals will now drop out of use. 

2. Attempt will only be made, until a final edition of the Revised Excise 
Pamphlet appears, to correct those copies of the Charas Manual which are in the 
possession of offices iu other Provinces, to which it is not possible to supply \any 
copies from the limited stock of copies of the Preliminary Edition of the Revised 
Pamphlet. 



. CIRCULAR No. 2 of 1902. 
To 

The Deputy Commissioners of Rawalpindi, Jheldm, Gujrat, Gujranwala, 

AND SlALKOT. ' 

Dated 29th January 1902. 

Attention is invited to the Notifications by Govei-nmcnt and by the Financial 

^ 100 jio^ J i^ 1 it ,... -r -.^r.. , Commissioner noted in the mar- 

Nos. J33 and 134, dated the I4th January 1902, and •„ ^„M;ei.;„„ * i.« «rxr,^;*;^„o 

No. 4, dated the 15th January 1902, iu tho Punjub ^^"; P^^'\^^i»"g, ^'^^ conditions 

Gazette of tho 16th January 1002. under which State spirit may 

be conveyed from tho Srinagar 

State Distillery by railway from Rawalpindi to Jammu, through the intervening 

Punjab districts. 

2. It will bo noticed that whenever tho Resident in Kashmir issues a pass 
for conveyance of spirit from Srinagar by this route, he is required to send a 
copy of the same to the Deputy Commissioner, Rawalpindi, who will thus be 
f^ven opportunity, as often as he considers it necessary, of liavin;^ tho conm^n- 
ment examined on arrival in tho Rawalpindi district, prior to its being entrained 
for removal to Jammu. 

There is not much likelihood that consignments will disagreo in atiy apprc-i 
ciable particular with entries made in any copies of passes received by tho 
Deputy Commissioner, Rawalpindi, or that seals will be broken or ^asks tani[tcrcd 
with ; bat Rule 7 provides that the Deputy Commissioner of Rawalpindi, or the 
Deputy Commissioner of any district on the line of rail between Hiiwalpiuiii and 
Jammu, may, if there is reasonable cause therefor, detain any congigumeut pend- 
ing a reference for orders. 

3. These rules have been framed to suit tJie convenience of tho Kashmir 
State Excise authorities, because it is easier for them to despatch 5|mnt miido ai 
the Central Distillery at Srinagar to Jammu vid the Punjab, than by iiny other 
route. The spirit despatched is thus to be regarded and treated as spirit dea^ 
patched in bond, it being destined for consumption in Jammu. ^' -

CIRCULAR MEMO. No. 1 or 1902. 
To 

All Dbp€TT Commissioners in ths Punjab. ^ 

Dded 26th Fe^rudry W02, 

With this Circalar Memo, arc forwarded seta of Wank forms (as noted in 
Imperial Returns *'^® margin) for use in preparing* -the Excise Statistics for 
I to V. Provincial the year 1901'02. , Thc3c rotarn^ are do© iv jbhis oflSce by 
Statements A to O, the 25th April next, accompanied by a report. 
Appen€iMa A and B. 

2. ik>th the returns and report are intermediate, in that they relate to no 
triettfiial period, but only to the one year 1901-02. 

3. For facility of reference a reprint of the manner in which the Gnotvcrn- 
ment of India desire that reports should be prepared is appended to. this 
Circular Memo* ; and in order that the instructions (ij, (u), (wi) and (tt;) con-, 
tained in the reprint may be the more easily followed, blank subject-sheets 
with printed headings relevant to the statistics contained in each of the returns 
are b^ing forwarded for nse, along with this Cironlar Memo. • 

. 4. AtJ/entionis also drawn to the letter No. 1717, dated 20th December 
1901, also reprinted at the end of this Circular Memo. 

In conformity with the intentions of this letter, the Deputy Commissioner 
of Mianwali is required to submit repbrtand returns for the four tahsils com- 
prising his district irrespective of tho fact thait tbc^ lately belonged to the 
Banna and Dera Ismail Khan Districts. 

Similarly the returns for the Rawalpindi District should include the figures 
for the Attock TahsiL 

5. It is requested that Appendix A may bo particularly carefully pre- 
pared.. It should be noted that in filling in Appendix A, no liquor, opium or 
drug receipts should bo entered cxcopt those actually paid into the .'Tn^asory of 
fcho district for which the Appendix is being prepared. That is, the- etitrieB in 
columns. I.t0j26 of -the same should agree with the credits under corresponding 
heads in the Treasury Accounts under ** V. — Excise *' Bocoipt8% SiniUariy, tln^ 
entries in Imperial Return No. II should agree with the entries in the Treasijiy 
Charges Account under/* 7. — Excise." To avoid ■ unnecessary correspondence 
h&s^BJttGTf the receipts and charges should be very oarefuUy made to ddrr^tpond 
^ith tke'TrdaHury Accounts.

10. In order to be really valuable for these purposes a report shonld consist 
o{<acciirate fact^ and figures with concise $tnd intelligent criticism of them^ •both 
facts aiul comments being contained within reasonable compass. In proportion 
Iksjts space is opcu^pied by discussio^s, even though they may be useful o)r 
interesting in themselves, or by the record of the writer's views ^n ^pointe 
cognate with the subject matter of the report, its utility will be diminislxedi' A 
narrative is required, as well as tabulated statistics, in order to ad^quaiely 
exhibit the facts of the year's administration, but there is a tendency^ on the one 
hand, to introduce into the narrative much that might be compressed into brief 
statistical tables, and, on the other hand, to embody tabular statistical tables in 
the letter press of a report because the writer is inclined to exhibit the facts in a 
form prepared mechanically by ministerial subordinates, rather than hdopi ihk 



Antt 190S. ] BXOISE DEPARTMENTAL OR0EBS. 3 

non laborious and more useful process of digesting them into a concise and 
lucid narrative. The multiplicity of tables by no means ensores brevity 
of narrative, and the object in view is so to distribate the information between 
narrative and statistics as to present the record of the year's work in the most 
interesting and comprehensible form. 

In order to attain this object, the following principles shonld be strictly 
followed ; — ' 

(t) the report should contain only the explanation of really important or 
suggestive variations in the statistics, and the statement of really 
noteworthy facts in the history of the year's administration ; 
(ii) no mere paraphrasing and reproduction of the statistics shonld be 
allowed in the report ; 

(in) all attempts to offer explanations of variations in the figureif, which 
are not important or unusual, shonld be excluded, unless the 
fact alleged in explanation is in itself important enough to de- 
mand mention ; 

(iv) the idea that it is necessary to say something shonld be discarded, 
and it should be recognized that the briefer a report is the better, 
if it says all that need be said to show an intelligent com- 
prehension of the meaning of the facts and figures and of the 
salient features of the year's work. 



Copy of letter No. 1717, dated 20th December 1901, from the Judicial and General 
Secretary to Oovemment, Punfab^ to all Beads of Depaftments. 

A QUISTION having arisen as to how the statistics of the districts and tahsils 
transferred to the North- West Frontier Province should be dealt with in con* 
nection with the preparation of the several annual departmental reports for 
both the calendar year 1901 and the official year 1901-02, the Lieutenant- 
Governor is pleased to order that the information supplied by the districts and 
tahsils referred to shall be excluded from the Punjab reports wherever the 
period covered by a report extends beyond the 8th of November 1901, particulars 
for Mianwali being obtained from Bannu and Dera Ismail Khan and incorporated 
in the Punjab reports. 



CIRCULAB LETTER No. 326 of 1902. 
To 

All Deputy Commissioners in the Punjab. 

Dated 9th April 1902. 

I HAVE the honour to forward, for information and such action as you may 
think it desirable to take, copy of an extract from an inspection note, dated 
26th February 1902, made by me concerning Excise management in the Jhelnm 
District. 

The system of collecting vend statistics, which is in vogue in this district, 
seems i practical one, and it certainly secures much better results than are 
observable in most districts in the way of collected statistics. 

• •«««••• 

The monthly retarns of retail sales of all the ezciseable articles are well furnished 
by the licensed vendors. The collection of the r ;tnrns is facilitated owing to the contracts 
of all articles bat liqaors being in the hands of one contractor for each tahsil ; bat there is 
a system here, which might well be imitated eUewhere, of insisting upon the contraotor4 
banding in their returns of sales during an expired month at the time when they pay in 
the iostabiiint of fee for a comiDg month at the tahsili. These collected retarns of sales

are then deapfttched from the tahsils so as to reach the sadr not later than between the 
6th and 10th of the month. This is a good system, as, in heavy distriota especially, 
attempts by the Daroghas to collect the sale-fignres themseWos, or to have them faroiahed 
direct to their officesi generally more or less completely break down. 

CIRCULAR No. 3 op 1902. 
To 

All Deputy Commissioners in the Ponjab. 

Dated 2Uh April 1902. 

The following letter to the address of the Deputy Commissioner, Amritsar, 
is circulated for the information and gnidanoe of all Deputy Commissioners. 
The letter shows that although the creation of the North- West Frontier Pro- 
vince will cause some amendments in the rules and procedure in connection 
with the removal of exciseable articles into the North- West Frontier Province 
from the Punjab and vies vBfsdf procedure must for the present continue accord- 
ing to the rules as they at present appear in the Excise Pamphlet, just as if no 
separation had taken place. When the roles are amended what are now trans- 
ports between the two Provinces will be treated as cases of export-import. 

Copyofaletter,No,Z6^ dated I9th April 1902, from Major C. G. Parsons, I. 8. C^ Com- 
missioner of Excise, Punjab, to the Deputy Commissiorier, Amritsar. 
WiTfT reference to yonr letter No. 920, dated the 15th instant, I have the hononr to say 
thiit at present transports of exciseable articles to the North-West Frontier Profince 
from the Punjab are proceeding exactly as if no separation has occurred. This is inevitable 
because we g^t no opportunity to revise the rules in respect of either Province before the 
separatiun, and the revision is a matter of some difficulty as reciprocal amendments are 
necessary. 1 have just been to Peshawar, and have prepared draft schedules of the amend- 
ments needed. You are quite right in assuming that removals of char as from your ware- 
house to the Frontier Districts will eventually have to be made under transport-in-bond 
passes, but this cannot be done yet as arrangements are not complete. 

2. You should, therefore, continue to levy duty and grant ordinary transport passes 
to cover such removals. The same procedure mnst alfo be followed until forther notice 
in the case of acy removals of hhar^g from yoor district. 

3. The same procedure must also be followed in the case of any removals of spirits 
from the licensed distillery in your district. Indeed, in the case of i^pirits, the question of 
Appropriation of duties is not likely to be settled for some time, as it will not be settled 
by a mere amendment of the rules, as will be the case in connection with the dntiefl on 
bhang and charas. 

4. In the case of opium, ordinary transport passes should also be given until further notice 
When the rules are amended export panses will be granted in place of transport passes. 

5. Action should be taken on this letter until the amendments required to the rules 
concerning each commodity appear in the Punjab OazeUe. They will probably be timed 
to appear simultaneously with the reciprocal amendments applicable to the Korth-West 
Frontier Province, which will, of course, appear in the Gazette of India. 

6. All effort has been made in this office to get the needed amendments ready, bat 
the cass has been delayed owing to the necessity for the taking of legal advice and to the 
impossibility of altering the rules as they will stand in respect of the Punjab, without, at 
the same time, consulting the authorities of the North-West Frontier Province as to tbe 
amendments needed (reciprocal or other) in the rules as they will stand in respect of that 
Province. 

'^ At the present moment I am about to put the draft schedules of amendments before 
the Financial Commissioner. 



CIRCULAR No. 4 of 1902. 

To 

All Deputy Commissionebs in tbb Punjab. 

T)ated 2ith Jun§ 1902. 

Undir the Btanding ordera of the Governmeat of India (s§e the Besola- 
tiona reproduced at pages 8 and 9, Part II, fitcise Pamphlet, 1900) all cases of 



JcsK 1902. ] EXCISE DEPARTMENTAL ORDERS. 5 

opiam Bmnggling are reported on either at the time of their occurrence, when 
important, or in a collated quarterly statement, whon petty, 

2. The Government of India requires no submission to itself of reports 
upon cftsefl under the Excise Act, but, in order that the Excise Commissioner 
might be kept informed of the extent and nature of offences under this Act, 

Excise Commissioner's Circular No. 1, trial-result reports were, with the ap- 
da ted 22nd January 1889. proval of the Financial Commissioner, 

Excise Coinmissioiier's Circular No. 9, required by the Circulars marginally noted 
dated 13th November 1889. jj^ ^j^^ ^^^q of ^y^^.y magisterial proceeding 

occurring under any section of the Excise Act (see page 11, Part I, Excise 
Pamphlet, 1900). 

A little later similar result reports were, by Circular No. 11, dated OCh 
December 1890, required in the case of all offences under the Opium Act, other 
than those smuggling cases already reported on in the special way required by 
the Government of India. 

3, Experience bas shown that few, if any, important cases tinder the 
Opium Act occur wbich are not in some way connected with smuggling or with 
smuggled opium, as the occasional illegal cultivation of a patch of poppy, the 
pos.^ession of a few tolas of illicit opium for personal consumption, and the 
prosecution of cultivators for not accounting for the wbole of their outturn (in 
the Lahore District such prosecutions are often instituted by the score), can 
hardly be considered important, or, at any rate, important enough to call for a 
separate result-report in each case. 

Similarly in the case of offences under the Excise Act, the really important 
cases concerning which it is desirable that the Excise Commissioner should 
- have concurrent information, ' are cases of illicit distillation and cases of 
smuggling of spirits or drugs, while it is not necessary that he should be kept 
concurrently informed of the result of prosecutions for petty breaches of the 
conditions of vend-licenses, such as the keeping of* shops open after hours, 
failure to submit vend »*eturns, etc., etc. 

4. The submission of trial-result reports under all the circumstances 
mentioned must be a considerable tax upon Excise ofiQces, and as, out of the 
Ti ambers of reports received in this office, only a minority attract attention or 
occasion a call for the files of the proceedings, it is, with the approval of the 
Financial Commissioner, hereby ordered that trial-result reports need not, in 
f ature, be submitted — 

(a) in connection with offences under the Opium Act, except in the way 
required by the Government of India Resolutions appearing in 
the Excise Pamphlet, Part II ; 

(h) in connection with offences under the Excise Act, except when the 
proceedings disclose — v 

(i) illicit distillation or attempts thereat ; 

(ii) illicit removals from a distillery, or any frauds in connec- 
tion with still-head duty ; 

(ill) smuggling of spirit or of hemp drugs into British territory 
from foreign territory ; 

(iv) illegal possession of spirit, charas or hhang^ and when the 
amount seized is as much as one gallon, quarter of a 
ser or 15 sers, respectively ; 

(r) illicit sale of spirit of hemp drugs.

FINANCIAL CIRCULAR ORDERS. 



CIRCULAR No. 1 op 1902, 
To 

All Commissioners kVD Deputy Commissioners in the Punjab. 

Dated 6th February 1902. 

In this OflBce Circular No. 2, dated 20th March 1901, instructions were issued 
for the preparation of District Reports and Returns of Income Tax Operations 
for the year 1900-1901. It was then stated that, as the Provincial Report would 
be for the triennial period 1898—1901, a fuller report than would otherwise have 
been necessary would be required. The Government of India subsequently, 
however, directed that the triennial Report should be postponed for a year and 
should deal with the three years 1899 — 1902. It becomes necessary, therefore, to 
a^ain call for information of the kind which was ^iven in the Reports of 1900- 
1901. The following instructions are accordingly issued for the Reports and Re- 
turns for the year 1901-1902 and for the Returns for the three years 1899—1902. 

2. Attached to this Circular will be found four returns, w.. Government 
of India Returns Nos. II, III, V and VII, which have to be filled in by District 
OfEcer.s and are submitted annually. These returns will contain the figures for 
the year 1901-1902 Only. They are the same returns as have been furnished 
hitherto, with different numbers, so as to conform with the numbers of the Pro- 
vincial Returns which are submitted to the Government of India. 

3. Also attached to this Circular are six returns, viz,, Government of India 
Returns Nos. II, III, V, VII, VIII and X, in which should be entered the triennial 
average of figures for the years 1899—1902. Of these, Nos. If, III, V and VII 
correspond with the annual returns of the same number, whilst Nos. VIII and 
X are special triennial returns. 

4. On all these returns instructions for* their preparation have been entered 
in the form of notes, and these should be carefully studied. Returns Nos. Ill and 
VII should be sent to the Accountant-General for verification as soon as possi- 
ble. They will then be submitted to this office with the other returns after 
clearing up any discrepancies which may be discovered. District Reports and 
Returns are duo from Commissioners by the 1st of May 1902. Divisional Reports 
are not required. Commissioners should endorse their remarks on the margin of 
the District Reports and should have the returns checked in their offices before 
Bubfnission to the Financial Commissioner. In all the returns only whole rupees 
shoald be entered, fractions of rupees less than 8 annas being neglected, and 8 
annas or more being shown as whole rupees. 

5. The following matters should be dealt with in the body of the report : — 

(t) Important increases and decreases in the final demand should be dis- 
cussed under each part separately. 

(iV) The Initial demand under Part IV should be compared with the Final 
demand, and the result of proceedings in revision by the Collector 
and Commissioner should be noticed. The total number of objec- 
tions preferred to, and disposed of, by the Collector and his sub- 
ordinates should be shown separately both for the year 1901-1902 
and for tho three years 1899 — 1902 with tho amount of remissions 
ordered. Details should also be furnished for the samejperiods as 

Digitized by VjOOQIC 



FINANCIAL CiaCULAB ORDSBS. £ 



to the objections disposed of, i.e., how many accepted in fall, fao«i^ 
many accepted in part, and how many rejected. Similar informa* 
tion should be supplied as to appeals to Commissioners. The per- 
centage of objection^ to the total number of assessees, of remissions 
to initial demand, and of snccessf nl objections should also be simi- 
larly given. 

{ui) Under Part IV an analysis should be givea, showing in which claM 
of assessees ^as denoted by Return No. Ill) changes have been 
most remarkable. The percentage of tax paid by assesdees of each 
class and the incidence of the tax on assessees of all classes should 
be given. Mention should also be made of the changes shown in 
Return V. 

(iv) The total balance nnder each part should be stated v?ith the reason 
for non-recovery, and the balance on account of previous years 
f»hould be separately noticed. The balance under Part IV should 
receive particular attention. 

(v) Fines and penalties, if any, should be noticed, and an explanation 
given of the nature of offences for which they were imposed. 

(tTi) Any special cases which may have occurred should be noted, and any 
remarks which the Collector desires to make on the working 
of the Act may be added. 

Further, attention may be called to anything striking that has occurred in 
connection with the tax during the three years 1899 — 1902. Collectors should 
though endeavour to be as brief in their remarks as is comj^tible with a clear 
explanation of the figures which they submit. 

6. The Deputy Commissioner of Mianwali should submit his i-oport for the 
whole year and not only from the date of the creation of the District. To do this 
be will probably ha^e to obtain the necessary figures from the Deputy Commis- 
sioners of Bannu and Dera Ismail Khan, and no time should be lost in so doing, 
or the Provincial returns will be delayed.

1 Some difficnlty having been felt in the interpretation and working of eectionO, anb- 
aection 3. of Act XIII of 1900 (Punjab Alienation of Land Act), the Hon'ble Judges are pleased 
to issue the following instructions :— 

2. The diflBcnlty of interpretation is in connection with 
Subject. ^^^^ words " proceedings for the enforcement of a condition 

Interpretation and working of gection intended to operate by way of conditional sale. 
9, sub-section 3, of Act XIII of 1900. 

The question has been raised whether they mean proceedings taken under sections of 
Regulation XVII of 1806 cmly^ or whether they include proceedings in suits, appeals or execntion 
of decree as well. 

This Court has now held that the words above quoted mean proceedings under section 8 
of Regulation XVII of 1806 on/y— ride this Court's ruling in Punjab Record, 'So. 26 of 1902 
(Civil). 

3. The difficnlty in the working of the subsection relates to the stage at which a reference 
Bhonld be made by the Civil Courts to the Deputy Commissioner. The question is whether the 
Civil Courts should not postpone reference until it has recorded a finding as to the validity of 
the mortgage or on any dispute concerning limitation. The section itself is silent on the subject, 
but the Act must be construed reasonably, and it is obvious that, unless the nrortgageisa 
subsistinsr one and is not time-barred, to refer any matters connected with it to the Deputy 
Commissioner is to waste time. 

The Hon*ble Judges accordingly direct that Civil Courts shall Hot make referencea to the 
Deputy Commissioner under section 9, sub-section 8, until they have disposed of any objectioni 
brought by the mortgagor against the validity of the mortgage, or of any plea raised by him 
on the point of limitation.

March 
Treasury 



1902, with a view to securing a better control of the working of the 
Department in its relations with the Sadr Tahsil : — 

2. — Pforedure in TahsiL 

(1). When n?oney is entrusted to a Mazkuri or Chaprasi to bo taken to the 
Treasury, his signature must always be taken in thn column " Alabd Girinda '' in 
the dakhila register as required by the second clause of paragraph 10 of Revenue 
Circular No. 40. If he cannot write, his name should be entered there and his 
ihnmb mark attached. 

(2). No Mazkuri or Chaprasi who is employed to take money to the Treasury 
should be allowed to assist in the preparation of the dakhilag, of the Register 
A madam Rozmarra Tahsil, or of the Goshwara which is sent to the Treasury. 

(8), If the Mazkuri or Chaprasi who was sent with money to the Treasury 
brings back with him two dakhilas instead of one only, the Tahsildar should at 
once draw the attention of the Treasury Officer to the fact. Only one copy of the 
dakhila ought to be given by the Treasury Amla to the Mazkun. The second copy 
ought to be sent to the Tahsil by a different hand after the Treasury Accounts of 
the day have been closed. 

(4). A locked box should be provided with duplicate keys, one of which will 
be kept by the Head Treasury Clerk, and the other by the Tahsil Wasil Baki Nawis. 
The Treasury Amla will put the copy of the dakhila which is to be sent to the Tahsil 
into this box, and send it the same evening or next morning to the Tahsil. The 
Tahsil Wasil Baki Nawis will take out the dakhilas, ascertain that the full 
signatures, not merely the initials, of the Accountant and Treasurer are upon them, 
and return the box, sending a receipt for the number of dakhilas received. This 

...... ^oogle 



JO FINANCIAL CIRCULAR ORDERS. [ Rk«>bi>, 



system will apply equally whether the item to which the dakhila refers was paid 
into the Treasury by a \fazkuri or Peon or by a Lambardar or some other person 
from whom money is due to Government. Until a box can be provided, the copy 
of the dakhila to be sent to the Tahsildar ^Wll be sent either by post or by the band 
of a Treasury Chaprasi. But as soon as the required arrangements have been 
made,*the Tahsildar will decline to receive the dakhila from the Treasury otherwise 
than in the manner above descnbed. 

(5). The daily Goshwara is to be prepai'ed by the Wasil Baki Nawis, and 
after being signed by the Tahsildai* or, in his absence, by the Naib-Tahsildar should 
be transmitted to the Treasury at latest on the fii-st working day after the date to 
which it belongs. At the foot of the Goshwara a list should be given in red ink of 
all dakhilas issued either on that day or previously for which the Treasury has not 
yet sent receipts. 

(6). The Tahsildar must enforce the order prohibiting the employment of 
unauthorized candidates and unauthorized assistants in the Tahsil OflBce. 

3. — Procedure i'l Treasu'y. 

(1). When dakhilas are brought to the Accountant prior to the payment of an 
item into the Treasury, he must remember the distinction between the dakhila which 
serves as a chalan and the dakhilas which serve a^ receipts. If there is no objection 
to the receipt of the money he will initial, not sign all 3 dakhilas, which will then be 
taken with the money to the I'reas irer. He will only complete his signature when 
they have boon bi*ought back to him bearing the full signature of the Ti'easurer's 
Go mash ta, which shows that the money has been actually i-eceived. 

(2). Whau tb3 dikhila^ are brought biok from th3 Treasurer's olfice to the 
Accountant, the latter will enter each item direct in the cash-book or appropriate 
subsidiary register, and the praclica, wharj it exist=», by which such amounts aro first 
entered into a rough register, must be discontinued. 

(3). After the entries havj boon raada in the cash-book and the dakhilas have 
been signed by the Accountant one copy of the dakhilas should be returned to the 
person who brought the money. The copy to be sent to the Tahsil should never be 
given to him in any circamstiucBs, whsthei* ho is a Tahsil Mazkuri or Peon or 
Lambardar or other person from whom money is due to Government. The copy to 
be sent to the Tahsil will be treated as described in paragraph 2 (4) above. 

C4). If the daily abstract Goshwara of Tahsil income, signed by the Wasil 
Baki Nawis of the Tahsil and by the Tahsildir, or, in his absence, by the Naib- 
Tahsildar, is not received at latest on the second working day after the date to which 
it refei-s, the attention of the Treasury OflScer must at once.be drawn to the matter 
by the Head Treasury Clerk, and the Treasury Officer will make a reference to the 
Tahsildar. 

(5). When the daily abstract Goshwara is received, it will be the Head 
Treasury Clerk's duty to compare it carefully with the Treasury Accounts. If it is 
necessary to return it to the Tahsil for correction or explanation, the Head Treasury 
Clerk is responsible that a reminder shall be sent after the expiry of three days at 
the latest. 

(6). In future all the registers of the Treasury Office must be locked up by 
the Head Treasury Clerk when leaving for the day and taken out in his presence 
for the commencement of work next morning. The Ti*easury Officer ghould 
see to the construction of the required almirahs and the purchase of the required 
locks and keys.

CIRCULAR LETTER No. 5146 o» 1902. 
To 

All Commissioners and Depott Commisbioners in the Punjab. 

Dated 1st October 1902. 

1 AM desired to invite attention to the notice published at page 1281 of the 
£unjab Oovernment Gazttte^ dated September 25, 1902, from which you will 
observe that an area of 5,500 acres, more or less, of Government wast© land in the 
Shahpor and Bhera Tahsils will be sold in lots at Bhera on the 9th instant, 

2. The Financial Commissioner considers that this is a good opportunity 
for the iL vestment, iu certain cases, of surplus funds of Wards' estates. Any 
Deputy Commissioner who decides that bids should be made at the auction on 
behalf of any Ward's estate or estates under his control should at once apply 
by telegram to this office for sanction to the pioTisicn of the neecful funds out 
of the balance of the Ward's money now available. The telegram should state 
the amount of such balance and the sum proposed to be thus invested in Jhelum 
Colony land. Sanction to the applications so made will carry with it, without 
any further express direction, sanction to the deputation, by the Deputy Commis- 
sioner, of a trustworthy subordinate, below the rank of Extra Assistant Commis- 
sioner, to inspect plans and bid at the auction. Instructions should be given to 
snch subordinate as to the maximum sum which ho is to offer per acre. The 
deputations should be arranged without the provision of substitutes, but the travel- 
ling allowance and the reasonable extra expenses of the persons deputed should 
be chai'ged to the Ward's estate concerned. These items may be defrayed with- 
out f nrtiier sanction. 

3. In deciding whether advantage should be taken of the present opportunity, 
it should be remembered that the acquisition of small properties in another 
district at a distance from the parent estate may entail more trouble than they 
aie woiih ; and no such acquisition should be contemplated if there is reason to 
believe that the estate could not afford the permanent cost of management. The 
cases for selection will therefore be those on which a considerable sum is available 
for investment, and in which the estate, and the Ward himself, when of age, is 
likely to be able to maintain on the spot a suitable resident agent. Funds for 
the remuneration of such an agent will doubtless be forthcoming fx'om the profits 
of the land purchased if the area bought is a pretty large one. 



CIRCULAR LETTER No. 5148 op 1902. 
To 

All Commissioners and Deputy Commissioners in the Punjab. 

Bated Ut October 1902. 

I AM directed to draw your attention to the possibility of certain frauds in 
oonnection with contingent bills and to the necessity for the strict observance of 
the roles relating thereto. 

2. In the first place, I am to refer you to the general rule of conduct laid 
down in Article 79 of the Civil Account Code, The officer who signs the abstract 
bills, certificates and contingent register should invariably satisfy himself that the 
amount has actually been disbursed and that the expenditure was duly authorized. 
The disbursement of money should never be left to a low-paid clerk ; this duty 
most be performed by the Nazir or Naib-Nazir himself. The Head Clerk should 
be required to satisfy himself from time to time that all sub-vouchers are kept in a 
place of security and are not accessible to any but a responsible officer. The 
jn-actice-of keeping them in an open unguarded box is highly objectionable.

3. Under Article 83 of the Civil Account Code, entries in the contingent 
register, from which the abstract contingent bills are prepared, most be checked 
with the snb.voochers supporting them ; it is most desirable that this procedure be 
strictly adhered to. 

4. Article 88 of the Civil Account Code directs that the officer who fdgns 
contingent bills should certify that he is i-esponsible for the destruction or 
defacement of all vouchers for sums of under Rs. 10. Mr. Tupper would point out 
that the responsibility here laid down is not intended to be a merely nominal one, 
and that Government is prepared to enforce it strictly wherever inexcusable 
neglect is proved. The attention of all officers is invited to the wording of the 
certificate in question : it is not sufficient that vouchers should be simply marked 
" cancelled " ; the cancellation should be such as to render it impossible that they 
could be used a second time; and this cancellation, Mr. Tupper considers, should be 
done either by, or in the presence of, the head of the office at the time of signing 
the certificate. The date of cancellation, in cases where the vouchers are not 
actually destroyed, should be shown on the voucher itself. 

5. I am fuiiher to convey the instructions of the Financial Commissionar, to 
the issue of which the sanction of Government has been obtained, regarding the 
delegation of powers with reference to Articles 8^^ and 88 of the Jivil Account 
Code. 

Article 88 i-ufei-s to bills not payable at the Ti-easury, and pi-ovision is there 
made for delegation. The rule should be strictly enforced, and no delegation permit- 
ted, except with general or special sanction of the Commissioner, which should 
be given only to provide for cases when the Deputy Commissioner is away. 

For the pui-poses of Article 83, when the Deputy Commissioner is absent on 
tour, the head of the office shall be deemed to be the senior fully-empow^:^ 
Assistant Commissioner at head-quarteis, of not less than two years* standing, or, 
if there is no such Assistant Commissioner, the senior English- speaking Extra 
Assistant Commissioner at head-quarters. 

6. The issue of this circular has been necessitated by the circumstancee of 
a recent case in which nearly Rs. 1,700 were embezzled by a Bills Clerk owing to 
neglect of the rules relating to contingent bills. An extract from the report of the 
J^eputy Commissioner of the district where the case occurred is appended for 
information. 

Extract, paragraphs 4 and 5, from a letter^ No, 294— 1439-E., dated 14th September 1901, from 
the Deputy Commissioner, • * • , to the Commissioner, • • DiWsioD. 

Para 4. The misappropriated items were all di-awn between July 14th, 
1899, and May 9th, 1901. 



They are made up as follows : — 



Rs. 



a. p. 



Class A (Repair of f urnitui'e and tents, hot and cold weather 
chai"gcs, conveyance of corpses and wounded persons, car- 
riage of treasure within district, carriage stationery, etc). ..• 180 2 10

charges and medico-legal examination fees) ... ... 1,397 5 3

All these items appear in the English Contingent Register and in the Treasary 
Accounts. They do not appear in the Nazir's Vemacalar Acconnts, and the inves- 
tigation has shown that they were not disbursed. Every one of the items is recorded 
in the Treasurer's bahi as paid to * * * , the English 

Oflfice Bills Clerk, and cannot be traced beyond him. 

5, The Contingent Kegister prescribed by Article 80 of the Civil Account 
Code, and the Abstract Bills on which contingent charges of all three classes are 
drawn from the Treasury, have been initialled by the Head Clerk, and, in the 
case of the latter, subsequently signed by a Gazetted Officer without examination 
of the vouchers by which the charges are supported ; and the vouchers for sums 
not exceeding Rs. 10, which according to the ceitificate appended to the bills ought 
to be "so destroyed, defaced or mutilated that they cannot be used again " 
before that certificate is signed, have been cancelled en mcLSse at uncertain 
intervals without any refei'ence to the accounts, which depend upon them for 
verification. The Head Clerk has relied completely on the Bills Clerk, who brought 
him the register and the bills to be initialled, and the Gazetted Officer who has 
subsequently signed the bills has relied completely on the initials of the Head 
Clerk, and has attached his signature on the faith of them. That fictitious 
acconnts purporting to be based on vouchers not exceeding Rs. 10, and, therefore, 
not submitted to superior authority, should have been passed for payment, in such 
circumstances as these, is a fact which needs no further explanation.

CIRCULAR LETTER No. 6952 or 1902. 
To 

All Commii.siokibs A!id Depitt Comiiissionsrs in thi Punjab. 

BcUed llth N<w«mfwr 1902. 

I AM directed to coovey the following instiactbng of the Financial Com- 
migsioner regarding — 

(a) the COD sequences of the acceptance by a zaildar, inamdar or lambardar 
of a colony grant subject to the condition of residence, and 

(6) the eligibility of colony grantees for the appointment of zaildar 
inamdar or lambardar in their home districts. 

2. When a zaildar, inamdar or lambardar accepts a colony grant subject to 
the condition of his residence in the colony, the Deputy Commissioner may — 

(1) reqaii© him to vacate his office immediately, or 

(2) under Land Revenue Rule 188 permit him to be absent from his 

circle or village for a period not exceeding one year and appoint a 
substitute to discharge his duties. 

The second course should ordinarily be taken if it is considered expedient to 
keep the substitute, who would probably be the successor, on trial. It must be 
distinctly understood that a residence condition, which has not been waived at the 
time of making the grant, must be fulfilled. The rural office-holder, who becomes a 
colonist subject to such a condition, has no right to retain his office. If he is permitted 
to do io for a time this should ordinJinly be done only for some reason oonnected 
with the convenience of the administration. He must vacate his office at latest at 
the end of the year allowed by Revenue Rule 188; or sooner if so required. 

3. No person holding a colony grant subject to the condition of his residence 
in the colony is eligible for a zaildari, inamdari or lambaidari outside the colon j. 
If any such person becomes a c-indidate for such aa appointment, intimation of the 
fact should at once be sent to the Colonization Officer conceraed ; and a candidate, 
who wishes to maintain his candidature, must either resigci his grant or, with the 
sanction of the Financial Commissioner, get it transfeiTed to a relative or other 
suitable person, to be approved by the Colonization Officer. Should the candidate 
become aware of this necessity only when his case is heard by a Revenue Officer, 
such officer may adjourn the case for a sufficient period, not exceeding six months, 
in order to give the applicant time to apply for sanction to a transfer. A copy of 
the order granting such adjournment should be forwarded to the Colonization 
Officer for information. 



CIRCULAR LETTER No. 7015 op 1902. 

All Commissiowebs and Deputy CoMMissiONBRt in the Punjab. 

J)ated 23rd December 1902. 

It will probably be remembered by most Commissioners and Deputy Com- 
missioners that the Financial Commissioner and the Local Government have 
lately been considering the question whether the method of treating cesses when 
suspending and remitting land revenue or recovering suspended land roTenue 
which obtains in the United Provinces should be adopted in the Punjab. 

2. The result is that the Lieutenant-Governor has directed that the present 
Punjab procedure shall be maintained in every respect, except that —

(1) the Qsual practice in crediting collections of Buspended land reveuue 

and cesses, when realized, in the tahsil accounts iu to be generalized, 
exceptions which occur in some districts being disallowed ; and 

(2) a new rule is to be introduced affecting zaildars. 

On the first point detailed instructions will be given in the Revised Revenue 
Gircolars. 

3. As to the second point, I am to say that the last sentence of paragraph 
11 of Revised Revenue Circular No. 27 is cancelled. In lieu thereof it is now 
directed that when the remuneration of the zaildar is assigned from the revenue 
of a particular village and the whole reveooe of that village is suspended, the 
zaildar shall receive his remuneration in full from the reveuue of some other vii- 
bge in his zail to be specified for the purpose hj the Deputy CommissioDer. 
Similarly, if the coUections from the village upon which the remuneration is as- 
signed are less than the proper amount of the remuneitition, the balance due may, 
by order of the Deputy Commissioner, be assigned from some other village in the

With reference to the Resolntion in this Department, No. 2421-S. R., dated 
the 7th May 1901, prescribing revised forms for the preparation of the annual 
r€ tarns of expenditure on stores purchased in India, I am directed to 
explain that the returns should include in the columns headed '* ll—Stores 
manufactured in India ** all stores of Indian manufacture other than those v^hioh 
aro inyariably or by general usage obtained exclusively in India. Articles of 
any one class or description of which the aggregate value does not exceed 
Bb. 1,000 in the year should, however, be excluded from the returns. 

Similarly, in the columns headed " I— Stores manufactured in Europe," 
artioles the aggregate value of which does not exceed Rs. 1,000 in the year, 
ahould be excluded. 

2. As some misapprehension appears to exist as to the exact meaning of 
the columns numbered 3 and 6 in Statement A, I am to say that column 3 is 
intenled to show the "average price or rate" of each article, not the total 
price, less incidental charges, as has been done in some of the returns recently 
received, and column 6 the date of order on which the particular purchase was 
Blade, not the date of any standing order under which the purchase is permis- 
sible.

REGISTRATION DEPTL. ORDERS. 



CIRCULAR No. 1 of 1902. 
To 

All Registrars in the Punjab. 

Dated Ibth February 1902. 

As yon have already been informed by telegram, dated 4th February 1902, 
Goveroment have now decided that the Registration Report for 1901-02, which 
is a triennial report, shall, in order that triennial statistics may be rounded off, 
be sabmitted after the con-pletion of the financial year; the system of sabmittingf 
reports by the calendar year being deferred until next year. 

The Government of India passed these amended orders on the 22nd of 
January, and this oflBce received notice of tbera on the 3rd of February, when 
telegraphic communications were at once sent; three districts having already 
submitted their reports by the calendar year, in response to this office Circular 
No. 10, dated 28th November 1901. These reports have had to be returned. 
There was natural regret for the time and trouble wasted over the compilation 
of statistics for the nine months ; but any representation of this was useless, as 
the orders passed applied to the whole of India. 

2. The 15th May is the date by which reports for the financial year were 
formerly duo in this office, and it is requested that reports may now be furnished 
by this date, the figures for the current quarter being added to the figures already 
collated in the statements, and the reports themselves, if, as is fear^, many haye 
already been drafted, being re- prepared in accordance. 

3. A fresh set of blank forms for the statements and fresh heading sheets 
for the report have been printed, as there were insufficient spare copies in 
stock of the original lot. These papers are forwarded to you with this Circular 
for utilization. 

4. Apart from the change of dates, the instructions given in this office 
Circular No. 10, dated 28th November 1901, apply in full, as to the manner of 
preparation of the Report and statements accompanying it. 



CIRCDLAR No. 1 op 1902. 
To 

The Managers of Joint Stock Companies reqistbrbd in the Punjab. 

Dated 28th May 1902. 

Intimation is hereby given to the Managers of all Companies registered 
in the Panjab under the provisions of the Indian Companies Act, VI of 1882, 
that His Excellency the Governor- General in Council has been pleased to remit 
the fee of Rs. 5 hitherto charged for registering annual Balance-sheets filed 
under section 74 of the Act. 

2. In future, in forwarding these Balance-sheets to this office, no fee 
need accompany them.

Government, Financial Department, Resolution No. 299, dated the 5th February 
1876, the duty of the Collecting officer is declai-ed to be " to see that all income

of the Controlling authority *' to check a^jd supervise the proceedings of officers 
primarily responsible, and to see that the amounts reported as collected have been 
duly credited in the accounts.'* Registrars can best perform the duty thus im- 
posed on them as ** Collecting officers ", by examining the monthly Return No. Ill 
submitted by Sub- Registrars, to see that the full amount of fees, etc., has been 
levied on each transaction and by comparing the total of such fees, e»c., with the 
Treasniy accounts. The stamp duty leviable on all sucli transactions should also 
engage the Rgistrar*s attention.

Indpector-General to pei-form, in part, the duty of " Controlling authority " over

No. T. This Return will be in the same form (Form A, Appendix VI) as is 
prescribed for Sub- Registrars, except thit it will be in English. 

The Registrar will first fill in the transactions of his own office for the quarter ; 
incases whei-e he exercises the disci-etion given him in section 30 of the Act, he should 
not only enter the number ot documents registered, with their proper fees under 
Aiiicle I, in the usual manner in columns 2 to 7, but also the additional fees (if any)

The Registrar will next transcribed from the v^nacular returns the transactions 
of the several Sub- Registrars siibji-dinato to him, each office being entered sepa- 
rately; but cai-e must be taken always to preserve the same oi-der o\ offices, as want 
of uniformity in this resjxict causes inconvenience in the pi^eparalion of genei*al

ately under notice, but to all ix>turns, whether monthly, qnai'terly or annual. 

Finally, the several columns will bo totalled up so as to show the aggi*egate 
business of the district during th^ quarter under leport. Any increases or deci-easos 
in the amount of business, either as compared with previous quarters, or with 
corresponding periods of former years, should be explained in the column of remftrks. 
These remarks should be wi-itten or dictated by the Registrar himself, and not

return will be entered any travelling allowance levied for visits paid or commissions 
issued • as well as a certificate of the dates on which the iron safe for deposit of 
sealed wills, etc., was opened and its contents examined during the month, as

CIRCULAR No. 2 of 1902. 
To 

All Rkgistbaks in thb Punjab. 

Dated 29th September 1902. 

In Circular No. 1, dated 22nd January 1897, issued by the Inspector- General 
of Registration, instructions were given concerning the taking of thumb impres- 
sions of persons presenting documents for registration, and of persons admitting 
execution of documents presented. These oilers still hold good as well as the 
instructions as to the manner of taking the thumb impresBions in question. 

2. At the same time, Qovemment have decided that it is not safe to use 
Printers' ink for the taking of thumb impressions, since, when such ink is used, 
it is possible to forge finger prints by taking copies of the original impressions 
and making fresh prints of these copies on the documents to be forged. 

3. Government have therefore ruled that an ink, such as the ordinary blue- 
black writing ink supplied by the Stationery Department, Calcutta, shall be used 
for tlie taking of the impressions. 

4. Registrars are therefore requested to indent upon the Stationery OflSce 
for such supply of packets of blue-black ink-powder, as may be necessary, for 
providing the Registry OflBces in their districts with the ink needed. It could 
either be distributed in powder or in the form of ink. 

5. In future, in the annual indents for stationery, the requirements of the 
Registry Offices should be included.

In continuation of Circular No. 2, dated 29th September 1902, the following 
letter to the Deputy Commissioner (Registrar), Simla, is circulated for the 
information of all Registering Officers. It will be noticed that Registering Officers 
Blionld, when complying with the departmental orders on the subject, take 
impressions of the thumb of parties only, and not of the thumb , and fingers of the 
right hand. The latter proc^ure, although it has been enjoined in other Depart- 
znents, is not applicable to the Registration Department : —

I'he instractions to be followed in Registry OBSces are those laid down in Circular No. 2, 
dated z9th September 1902, issued by the Inspector-General of Registration, in which Circular 
only thumb impressions are referred to as required. In this Circular any iustractions for the 
taking of impressions of fingers, as well as of the thamb, were, with the approval of <»overn-

CIRODLAR No. 4 of 1902. 
All Depott Commissioners (Regxstbabs) in the Punjab. 

Dated 2eth November 1902. 



In paragraph 10 of Circular No. 9, dated 15th November 1901, issaed by 
the Inspector- General of Rejs^istration, it was pointed out that, although the law 
does not admit of no fine beinpr levied for delay in presentation of a document for 
registration, even Avhen the delay may be due to no fault of the presenter, but 
simply owint(to the necessity for obtaining the order of a Deputy Commissioner 
under the Punjab Alienation of Land Act, yet hardship upon the presenter could, 
and should, be avoided in the cases indicated, by the fines inflicted being made 
nominal only. 

2. The rule which contains the scale of fines to be levied under the sections 
•Sections 24 and of the Act in question* is Departmental Rule 10, appeanngat 
34 of the Reeistra- pjigo 51 of the Registration Manual. Had this rule, as 
tion Act, III of 1877. originally framed in 1880, been allowed to stand unaltered 
the lowest fine which could have been levied would have been an amount equal to 
t.vice the proper i*egistratiou fee. 

But in order to meet cases of the kind mentioned above a proviso was added 
to Rule 10 by the Inspoctor-Generars Notification No. 54, dated 13th November 
1901. 

The terms of this proviso admit of a Registrar limiting the fine to one anna in 
the case in question, and when -the presenter is obviously not to blame for delay it 
would bo Ruificient to levy this nominal amount. The proper way to pass the 
order would be to direct registration upon payment of a fine equal to the proper 
registration feo plus one anna. The order'should be worded in this way, localise 
Rule 10 provides that no ros^istration fee shall bo levied in addition to the fines 
imposed under the sections ni^med. 

This Circular is issued with particular reference to that part of paragraph 9 
of tho Provincial Registration Report for the triennium ending March 1902. which 
deals with delayed registrations, and with reference to the remarks made by 
Government in paragraph 6 of their Review of the Report, directing tbat the 
imposition of fines in such cases as are referred to should be carefully watched. 



CIRCULAR LETTER No. 348 of 1902, 

To

Dated 2nd December 1902. 



In connection with my Circular No. 13, dated 21st December 1901, on the 
subject of decreased registration business, and the consequent desirability of reducing 
establishments in some Registry oflices, 1 have the honour to inform you that in 
paragraph 5 of the Review of the Provincial Registi-ation Report for the triennium 
ending March 1902, Goverament decided that the best way to treat the case will 
be when the figures of business do not seem to justify the retention of one or more 
of the clerks employed, to call upon the Registrar to show cause why reduction 
should not occur. 

At the same time Government call for carefnUconsideration as to whether it is 
advisable to retain all the existing non-official Sub-Kegistrarships.

2. I forward with this letter two Btatements. The first shows the business 
done last year in the Registry otficas of year district compared with the establish- 
ment entertained, and the figures of bu'^iness for the first half of the current year 
are appended, for facility of reference, at the end of this letter. 

It appears from the figures of business that establishment is not in excess in 
any Registry office in your district, and I am not therefore asking you to consider 
any reductions. 

3. The second statement forwarded with this letter shows the emoluments 
drawn by the various Sub- llegistrars in yonr distnct. In cases in which the 
emoluments drawn are particularly small, it is evident that some i-emedy is desir- 
able ; and if there are any such cases in your district, I would be glad to know 
whether you consider the remedy of taking the office out of non-official hands 
altogether and of putting it in charge of the Tahsildar could, or should, be 
resorted to ; or, if the office in question is nob at Tahsil head -quarters, if you 
would consider whether it could, or should, be abolished altogether. IVom the 
remarks made by Government in their review, it appears that they are inclined to 
consider the reduction of non-official agency where the emoluments are too petty. 
Bat in many cases geographical considerations render desirable the retention of 
offices in charge of non-officials, erven if the business done is petty ; and in other 
cases non-officials have been appointed Sub- Registrars as a mark of distinction, etc., 
and they might not Hke to throw their offices up even although the receipts are 
small. 

I may add that, as an alternative remedy for the circumstances in question, I 
am examining the system of remuneration in the United Provinces, where Sab- 
Registrars are remunerated partly by fixed salary and partly by a percentage of 
fees, with the result that no Sub-Registrar can possibly get less than Rs. 30 per 
mensem. 

I hope to be able soon to put the details of this system before Government, 
and it is possible that Government might agree to adopt a similar manner of 
remuneration in the case of offices in which receipts are petty, but which it is 
neither desirable to close nor to withdraw from the hands of non-official incum- 
bents. •

being no triennial report this year) is limited to two printed pages, district notes 
should be kept within a similar compass. 

2. The statistics to be supplied will relate to the calendar year 1902, and at 
the foot of the statements the totals for the calendar year 1901 will be entered for 
parposes of comparison. The statistics for the first three months of the calendar 
year 1902 were included in the statements for the financial year 1901-02 ; but now 
that the calendar year system is being resorted to, the statistics for these three 
months will have to be again included in the present statements. Similarly, to 
obtain the statistics for the calendar year 1901, it will be necessary to take figures 
from the statements which were prepared both for the financial years 1900-01 
and 1901-02. 

The Deputy Commissioners of Mianwali, Dera Ghazi Khan and Rawalpindi 
will, in preparing the statistics for the calendar year 1901, be guided by the 
instructions contained in paragraph 5 of this oflBce Circular No. 10, dated 28th 
November •1901. 

3. The District notes should be in narrative form in taking each statement in 
turn, with a view to noticing any remarkable variations which appear in the figures 
contained therein, and this being done any noteworthy features in the administra- 
tion of the year may be added in a paragraph at the end of the note.

CIRCULAR No. 7 of 1902. 



All DEprjTY Commissioners (Registrars) in the Punjab. 

Dated lltk Deamher 1902. 

In CircAlar letter No. 348, dated 2nd December 1902, issued from this oflBce, 
(a) Possible redac- which dealt with the matters noted in the margin, mention 
tion of Clerical Es- was made of the existence of some sub-offices which were created, 
tablishments in sob- or have devolved, less in the actual interests of the public than 
offices. -with the object of conferring dignity upon, or retaining dignity 

(6) Possible aboli- to, the incumbents. It was hinted that, although for public 
tion of some sab- purposes the retention of offices of this kind might be useless, 
°®^^' . yet, nevertheless, in some cases Deputy Commissioners might 

be unwilling to reconunend abolition for extraneous reasons, etpecially when the 
devolution of incumbency has come to be regarded as almost, if not quite, 
hereditary. 

2. In some cases of this kind, it is obvious that if the offices are retained, and 
if Government approve of remunerating Sub- Registrars in the future partly by a 
fixed stipend and partly by a percentage on the fee income, the fixed stipend would 
be thrown away in return for litle, if any, consideration. >

But it is part of the scheme which I am putting before GoverDment that the 
roles to regulate remuneration shall be elastic, so as to admit of remuDeration 
being confined entirely to a percentage on fee income in particular cases. 

Should these sugjj^stions be approved by Government, to restrict remuneration 
to percentage only would obviously be expedient and justifiable in the cases in 
question, when the business done is often merely nominal. 

I think, moreover, that incumbents of the cla^is under consideration might well 
be distinguished by the title of " Honorary Sub-Registrars." 

3. If, therefore, when replyin r to the Circular Letter No. 348, dated 2nd 
December 1902, a E^gistrar is not in favour of abolishing a sub-office, which is of 
little use for public purposes, for the reasons already indicated, I would be glad if 
he would expressly state whether in his opinion the incumbent should not be listed 
as an " Honorary Sub- Registrar," upon the understanding that he would receive 
no stipend, but only a percentage of fee income, supposing that the suggestions in 
that behalf which are being made by me to Government are eventually approved.

The following defects, which have come to light in the review of audit of 
pension payments, appear to occnr, more or less frequently, in most distriots, 
and I shall be obliged by yoar issuing instructions to your Treaanqr Officers 
to prevent their recurrence : — 

f 1). Pen.sioners, who do not appear in person at the Treasury to receive 
payment of their pensions, are in the habit of sending by their agents their seals 
and a cancelled receipt stamp to be affixed to the pension sohedules. This 
practice is irregular. In accordance with Article 846, Ci^il Account Code 
pensioners who do not appear personally are required to furnish a separate 
receipt in each case, signed (or sealed in the case of illiterate pensioners) and 
where necessary, stamped by themselves. This receipt should be attached to 
the schedule, note being made on the receipt of the name of the person really 
receiving the money. 

. (2). Life certificates are in many cases not obtained in the form prescribed 
in paragraph 3 of this Office General Letter No. 40 of 1900. 

(3). The seals or marks of illiterate pensioners must be affixed in the last 
column of the schedule in addition to their thumb impressions; the latter bv 
themselves do not constitute a sufficient receipt. 

(4). Marrlafi^e certificates of female pensioners should be attested by well- 
koown and trustworthy persons, and not by other female pensioners. ^

paragraph of the Revenue Circular amended, but in the meantime it is nec^ 
sary to issue instructions in the matter in order to prevent, as far as possible, 
the recurrence of fraud. The matter is an important one, and I trust that it 
will receive your personal attention. 

2. Principally with a view to ensuring the observance of the very neces- 
sary check of the Accountant's Brancli over the Treasurer's Branch and t ice 
tersd which is required by the rules of the Account Code quoted above, bat 
which is not imposed by paragraph II of the Revenue Circular, I have the 
honour to request that the procedure described in the followiug paragraph 
may be strictly followed, aud that you will personally take steps to ensure- its 
observance. 

3. When the collections of a head-quarter tahsil are received at tlie 
District Treasury, the memorandum of payments tendered (arz irsal) is presented 
at the tahmi, where the c^aMtVa is prepared in triplicate, and is signed by the 
Wasil Baki Navis (no Siyaha Navis being kept) and the Tahsildar. The person 
tendering the payment is then sent to the Treasury with the three copies of the 
dakhila. He presents the three copies in the first instance to the Treasury 
Accountant, who, if there be no objection to the receipt of the money, initials 
(but does not sign in full) the three copies. Next the three copies will be pre- 
sented, by the person tendering the money, to the Treasurer, who will receive 
the money, enter the amount in his cash-book, and sign in full the three copies 
of the dakhila after entering in each any deductions for short weight or bad 
coin which may be found necessary. The three copies of the dakhila should 
then be brought back to the Treasury Accountant, he will enter the amount in 
his cash book and complete his signature on the three copies of the daJthila. 
One copy he will return as a receipt to the person who tendered the money, first 
obtaining, in the case of sums of Rs. 500 and upwards, the signature of the 
Treasury OflScer ; the second copy of the dakhila should be forwarded to the Tahsil- 
dar when the accounts of the day are closed ; the third copy represents the chalanf 
and is kept in the Treasury for record. 

Columns I, 3 aud 13 of the Dakhila Register should bo filled in by the 
Wastt Baki Navis when the dakhila is issued, and^tho remaining columns when 
it is received back, and enquiry must be made about any dakhilas not rctnrned 
by the Treasury on the same or the following day. 

Where the Government Treasury is managed by the Bank of Ben^l a 
similar course is followed, the triplicate dakhila being presented with the money 
at the Bank instead of at the District Treasury Office. 

The goshwara, prescribed in paragraph 15 of Revenue Circular No. |-?, 
should be sent daily to the Treasury and carefully examined at the Treasury to 
see that all items have been duly credited in the Treasury Accounts. 

4. I have the honour also to request that you will give your personal atten- 
tion to the following matter with a view to remedying any defects in procedure 
in Sub-Treasuries in your district, which defects may give opportunities for fraud. 

5. It is understood that the procedure prescribed in Article 308 of the 
Civil Account Code and Rule 3 under it is not in all cases properly observed in 
Sub-Treasuries having cash transactions (i.e., Sub-Treasuries other than those at 
Sadr). It has come to notice, for instance, that in certain Sub-Treasuries it ir 
the practice for the amounts tendered to be entered in the books of the Siyaha 
Navis before they are presented to the Tahsildar. This is, of course, quite 
irregular. The Siyaha Navis ought not to enter any amount in his books, nor 
should a receipt be given to the person who tendered the money, until the 
chalan (or whatever takes its place) is brought to (he »Siyaha Navis with the 
signature of the Tahsildar on it to show that the money has been actually 
received.

To 

All Deputt Commissioners in the Punjab, 

Dated lOih July 1902. 
In my General Letter No. 42.C. D., dated the 15tli March 1893, you were 
requested to instruct yonr Treasury Officer to check the monthly statement 
prepared by the Superintendent of the Jail with the Treasury Accounts before 
despatch to the Inspector- General of Pi-isons. 

2. Hitherto the practice of your Treasury Officer has been to verify jthe 
totals under the minor heads " Jails " and " Jail Manufactures " only instead of 
under the several detailed heads subordinate to those heads, and the result has boon 
that in several instances there have been differences between the Treasury figures and 
those communicated by the Jail Superintendent. To obviate unnecessary corre- 
spondence, I request that you will be so good as to issue instructions to your 
Treasury Officer that in future, before signing the agreement certificate at foot of 
the statement, he should check the figures under each head subordinate to ** Jails " 
and ** Jail Manufactures" and under the heads " Recoveries on account of printed 
work performed by Jail Press for Local Bodies and Individuals " and " Cost of 
printed work performed for Public Departments by Jail Press " subordinate to 
** XX II I— Stationery and Printing " as recorded in the Treasury Accounts anch 
those shown in the Jail Statement. 



No. 4796 OP 1902. 
To 

The Officer in Cuargb of the Central DmiNFEcnoN Dep6t 

FOR THE Punjab, Jullundur. 

Dated 10th July 1902. 
With reference to the Punjab Government letter No. 333, dated the 28th 
February 1902, addi'essed to the Deputy Sanitary Commissioner, Punjab, sanction- 
ing the establishment of a Central Disinfection Depot for the Punjab at Jallundur, 
I have the honour to issue the following instructions, in connection with Account 
matters relating to the Dep6t, and to request that they may be adopted at once in 
order that the Accounts of the Dep6t may be kept from the first on a right basis. 

2. All Dep6t charges, with the exception of payments to local firms, will be 
drawn on bills in the form ordinarily used for such charges fix)m the Jullundur 
Ti-easury, where a separate subsidiary register will be maintained to facilitate a 
proper recoi'd of the charges paid on account of the Dep6t. At the time the bills 
ai'e sent for encashment at the Treasury the amounts will be entered in the Dep6t 
Accounts on the payment side. '1 he charges to be drawn in this manner include 
the initial expenditure mentioned in the first part of paragraph 4 of the Govern- 
ment letter, also the allowance to the Civil Surgeon, establishment and contingent 
charges, and the cost of disinfectants and appliances purchased for the Dep6t. 
No sums, other than petty contingent charges, should be drawn in caph. For 
instance, sums required for the purchase of chemicals should not be drawn in cash, 
but the bills should be accompanied by a formal application for the issue of a 
Remittance Transfer Receipt under clause (I) of Article 143-1 fa) of the Civil 
Account Code. There is, however, an exception to this rule, and that is when 
payment has to be made to a local firm ; in that case the supplying firm will 
submit its bill in duplicate (one copy having a printed heading in red ink 
** Onginal ** and one ** Duplicate ") on foi-ms supplied by the Dep6t. The bill 
headed " Original," if accepted and in order, will be endorsed by the ofiicer in 
charge of the Dep6t for payment, and will be delivered to the local firm for 
payment at the Treasury. At the time the bill is delivered to the local firm the 
amount will be entei-ed in the Depdt Accounts on the payment side, GoOqIc

3. No cash should be received at the Dep6fc oflBce on account of the sale 
proceeds of articles sapplicd to Local Bodies and Government officers. The issues 
of disinfectants will be made on indents (in the form pi-escribed by the Chief 
Plague Medical Officer) from the officei-s requiring them, and as goon as the 
articles are despatched fi-ora the I)ep6t a bill should be prepai-ed in quadim plicate 
by the Depot (in the form prescribed by the Chief Plague Medical OflScer). 
[It would bo advisable to have printed bill books for ihe purpose ; the form of bill 
should show the name, quantity, rate, etc., of the articles supplied, together with 
the total cost chai'ged.] One copy of the bill will be retained in the Depot as an 
office copy, and the other thi-ee sent to the Indenting Officer, who will, after check 
and countersign at nrr, return immediately the second copy to the Dep6t as a 
receipt; the third copy he will send to the Officer or LocaI Body, who is to bear 
the chai-ge, for payment of the claim into the Treasury to crrdit of tlie Depot (in 
the case of a \jOcal B.»dy the payment will be by cheque, while, if Government is 
to bear the charge, the officer ronceraed will present at tL-e 'J'reasury or Sob- 
Treasury a contingent bill for the amcunt, supported by the third copy of the 
Depot bill, as a sub- voucher, and the amoui.t will be paid by the Treasury or Snb- 
Ti^easury by transfer ci^dit to the Depot account) ; the fcurth copy of the bill will 
be kept by the Indenting Officer in his office as a i-ecord to be tiled with llie oflBce 
copy of his indent. 

As soon as the claim has been paid and a Treasur}' or Sub-Treasuiy receipt 
obtained, such receipt should at once be sent by the Local Body or Officer concerned 
to the Dep6t, and the amount will then be credited in the Dep6t Accounts. 

[It will be convenient if the items on the Receipt side of the Dep6t Cash- 
book ai-e numbered with an annual series, the same number being endorsed on 
the actual receipts received from the Treasury, which receipts should be tiled in 
order in sepai-atc files.] 

4. Apart from the Depaitmental Accounts required to be maintained under 
the orders of the Chief Plague Medical (Officer for accounting for the receipts and 
issues of disinfectants, chemicals, etc., the Depot should maintain: — 

(a) A Cash-book in the usual foim (Civil Account Cede, Form No. 3o) for the 
recoi-d of receipts and payments, in which the balance should be worked out daily. 

(d) A register of issues of chemicals, etc , in the form annexed, in which 
provision has been made for watching i-ecovenes of the cost'of articles supplied. 

At the close of each month an Abstmct Account of the Dep6t, showing (I) the 
balance (generally a debit balance) of the Depot at the beginning of the month; 
(2) total payments daring the month ; (H) total receipts during the mouth ; and 
(4) the balance (generally a debit balance) at the end of the month, together with 
an extract from the Register of Issues, with the columns 8, 9 and 10 omitted, 
showing the issue 8 made during the month, should be sent to my office for audit 
purposes.

to stocks and appliances now in the possession of Local Bodies, which, according to 
the Punjab Government letter No. 333, dated the 28th February 1902, arc to be

I HATE the honour to invite your attention to the provisions of Article 393 {f) 
of the Civil Account Code, which lays down the procedure to bo followed at Trea- 
suries in the case of Remittance Transfer Receipts and Supply Bills payable by 
tranaferto some head of account. It has come to notice that this procedure is not 
l)oing observed in the Pnnjjih and North-Wesfc Frontier Province, but Ihat it is, 
generally speaking, the practice merely to make an endorsement in such cases in the 
manner described in Rules 2 and 3 of Article 311 of the Civil Account Code. I have 
the bonour to request that, iu future, the procedure laid down in Article 393 (/) may 
ba strictly followed. It will be observed that in the case of a Remittance Transfer

Receipt the fact that it has been credited by transfer, and the date of credit, and tJu 
daily item, in the Accountants Register in which it is included, should be noted on 
the reverse of the llemittance Transfer Receipt under the signature of the Treasury 
OflScer, the receipt of the payee being scored through. The object of noting the 
above particulars on the reverse of the Remittance Transfer Receipt is to ensure 
the attention of the Treasury Officer to the daily item in the Accountant's Register 
in which the per contot credit on account of a Remittance Transfer Receipt paid 
by ti-ansfer occurs and to secui'e his concun-ent audit of these tmnsactions. 

2. Ifc may in this connection be mentioned that the procedure prescribed in 
Rules2 and 3 of Ai-ticle311 of the Civil Account Code has not been properly 
obsei-ved in many cases in which it has been applied. In some cases neither tire 
major nor the detailed heads affected have been indicated ; in others, while the major

STAMP DEPTL. ORDERS. 



CIRCULAR No. 1 op 1902. 
To 

All Deputy Commissionkrs in the Punjab. 

Daied l&ih March 1902. 

With this Circular are forwarded (in duplicate) two sets of blank forms as 
Annual Stamp per margin for (I) recording the statistics relating to the 

StatementB I to VII. Stamp Revenue during Uio year 1901-02 and (2) the average 
Triennial Stamp yearly transactions of the triennium ending 1901-1902, 

Statements I to VII. compared with similar averages for the previous triennium. 

These statements- should be submitted to this office not later than the 20th 
April, accompanied by a report on the triennial period. 

2. As to the manner of preparation of the report, extract from paragraph 
10 of Government of India Resolution No. 987 — 1013 (Home Department), dated 
25th February 1901, is appended for guidance, and as it is desired that the 
reports may follow instructions (f), (n), (in) and (iv) contained in paragraph 10, 
subject sheets with printed headings relevant to the statistics contained in each 
statement are being sent to Deputy Commissioners for use. 

3 (a). The Deputy Commissioner of the new Mianwali District will, of 
course, submit to this office report and returns for the three tahails comprising 
liis district, irrespective of the fact that these tahsils lately belonged to the 
Bannu and Dera Ismail Khan Districts. There should be no difficulty in collate 
iug the statistics, as, although previously reported to head-quarters at Banna 
and Dera Ismail Ehan, they are still available at the tahsil offices. 

(6). The Attock tahsil was transferred back to the Rawalpindi DisMct 
with effect from the Ist November 1901. The statistics of this tahsil should be 
incorporated in the Rawalpindi statements. The Superintendent of Stamps, 
North-West Frontier Province, will, no doubt, direct them to be excluded from 
the Hazara statements. 

The instructions in clauses (a) and (b) above are issued in aocordance 
with Punjab Government (Home Department) letter No, 1717, dated the 20th 
December last, which is reprinted at the end of the Circular. 

4. In conclusion, it is asked that one of the two aocompanying bkink 
forms to contain a nominal list of Sub-Postmasters licensed to sell ITon- 
Jndicial Stamps may be filled up, and sent in along with the other papers, 
the duplicate copy being kept for record. 

S»tract, paragraph 10, from the ttesolution No. ^*,, dated 2Bth February 1901, of the ChvernnmU 

of India ^ in the Home Department. 

In order to be really valoable forthenf) pnrposeR a report should oonsist of aooarate 
facts and figures with concise and intelligent criticism of them, both facts and oommenti 
being oontained within reasonable compans. In proportion a<< its space is oocDpied by dla- 
ouBsions, even though they may be nseful or interesting in themselves, or by the record of 
the writer's views on points cognate with the flnbject matter of the report, its ntili^ will 
be diminished. A narrative i^ required, as well as tabulated statistics, in order to adeqoately 
exhibit the facts of the year's administration, but tliore is a tendency, on the one band, to 
introduce into the narrativ'c much that might be compressed into brief statistical tablts 



2 STAMP DEPARTMENTAL OBDBBS. [ RicoBD^ 

and, OD the other hand, to embodj tabular BtatiBtical tables in the letter-press of a report 
because the writer is inclined^ to exhibit the facts in a form prepared mechanically bj 
ministerial subordinates rather than adopt the more laborious and more usefal process of 
digesting them into a poncise and lucid narrative. The multiplicity of tables by no means 
onsures brevity of narrative, and the object in view is so to distribute the information 
between narrative and statistics as to present the record of the year's work in the most in- 
teresting and comprehensible form. 

In order to attain this object the following principles should be strictly followed : — 

(0 The report should contain only the explanation of really important or suggestive 
variations in the statistics, and the statement of really noteworthy facta in the 
history of the year's administration. 

(»») No mere parophrasing and reproduction of the statistics should be allowed in the 
report. 

(ttt) All attempts to offer explanation of variations in the figures, which are not 
important or unusual, should be excluded, unless the fact alleged in explanation 
is in itself important enough to demand mention. 

(tv) The idea that it is necessary to say something should be discarded, and it shoald 
be recognized that the briefer a report is the better, if it says all that need be 
said to show an intelligent comprehension of the meaning of the facts and 
figures and of the salient features of the year's work. 



Copy of PunjnhQovernment {Home Department) letter No. 1717, dated 20th December 1901, 
to all Heads of Departments in the Punjab, 

A question having arisen as to how the statistics of the district and tahsila transferred 
to the North- West Fixmtier Province should be dealt with in connection with the preparation 
of the several annual Departmental tteports for both the calendar year 1901 and the official 
year 1901-02, the Lieutenant-Governor is pleased to order that the information supplied by 
the districts and tahsils referred to shall be excluded from the Punjub reports wherever the 
period covered by a report extends beyond the 8th of November 1901, particulars for Miaa- 
wali being obtained from Ban tra and Uera Ismail Kliau and incorporated in the Ptmjfib 
reports.

difficnlty aboat sending packaGces of stamps to outlying Tabsils, I have the hosonr to advise 
you that when trustworthy mesitengors nre not available, the best way to send s^ch 
packages np to a weight of 5^ sors is to send them as registered postal parcels, for which 
the charges are as shown in the following table : —

It will be noticed that the minim. im insnramce fee is Bs. 2, but, nevf^rthelees, for parcels

resorted to, and, moreover, the limit of weight for registered post is 7^ sers. 



It must, however, be remembered thit parcels of a valoe of over Bs. 500 cannot be 
accepted for insurance by Station Masters, without the sanction 
of the District Tratfic Supeiintendente, to whom they are 
subordinate,* and therefore, when the despatch of a consign- 
ment of larger value is contemplated, the best plan would be to break it up into two parcels 
and inaoro vaoh.

No. 856, dated Calcotta, 28th November 1901. 

From— A. V^illiaVs, Esquire, OflSoiating Secretary to the Government of India, 
Home Department, 

To— The Chief Secretary to Government, Punjab. 

In continnation of the letter fi-om this Department, No. 845 of this date, 
I am directed to snj that the greater number of cases of coining to be repor^iBd 
in the retam thoroin rcf- rrod to will be merely cases of passing counterfeit coin 
(wbick is the most common practice resorted to) by applying a coating of ^ick- 
silver to a4jopp<3r coin to give it the appearance of a silver one— a practice whicb 
can -only impose on the ignorant, and does not constitute any real danger to ikfp 
coini^. The Gt)yernment of India therefore desire to receive separate infonoii^ 
tion regarding the actual manafactarc of coin and sweating coin, in order ^tjpi 
ascertain whether they are on the increase or decrease. For this purpose ^ 
return has been preecribed in the accompanying form, and I am to request tKnt^ 
with the permission of His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor, it may also be snt- 
mitted quarterly to the Government of India. Each return should be accompanicKi 
by a concise account of the more important cases, stating tlie process of mana- 
facture (especially whether moulds or dies were used); and the quality and 
appearance of the coin. To prevent cases from appearing twice over in the 
returns, and to ensure that the figures for trials and convictions shall relate ta 
the same set of cases as those relating to the number of cases investigated, it 
would be better if cases brought to trial are not included until the trial is con- 
cluded, and if " cases investigated " aro not shown until either it has been decided 
not toprosettute or the result of the prosecution is known. 

2. The Government of India have also observed that in some instanceii 
the sentences passed by the Courts for offences relating to coiungo are inadequate. 
I am accordingly to request that, with the permission of His Honor theliieuten- 
ant-Governor, instructions may be issued for the careful scrutiny of the sentences 
passed in these cases, and that, in any instance in which the sentence <^ 
the Court U obviously insuflBcient, it may be considered whether appHcatio^ 
should not be made to the superior Court to revise and enhance the senteirce/ ',,

(1) All Heads op DiPAftTMEKTs in the Punjab, 

(2) All Commissioners and Superintendents of Divisions ik Tffr 

Punjab. . 

(3) All Deputt Cqmmissionebs in the Punjab. 

The Government of India, in their letter No. 5236, dated 16th September 
1901, communicated certain instructions regarding the holidays which are to te 
observed in future in public offices in the Punjab. A copy of that letter ww 
circulated with this office letter No. 1357, dated 16th October 1901, to all Herfs 
of Departments and Commissioners of Divisions for opinion on two points, nc, 
(a) whether a holiday should continue to be given under the Negotiable 
Instruments Act for the Baisakhi Festival, and (6) as to the number of local 
holidays which district authorities should be at liberty to grant in their parti- 
cular districts. 

2. As regards (a), 1 am to inform you that the Lieutenant-Governor h» 
decided, after a consideration of the replies received, that a holiday under the 
Negotiable luRtruments Act phall continue to be granted for the Baisakhi 
Festival. 

3. As regards (i»), it appears that in only a few districts in the Punjab are 
■lore than four or five local holidays during the year granted by Deputy 
Commissioners, exclusive of the last Saturdays of the months. In the districts 
referred to, local holidays, varying from eight to thirteen, have been granted^ $ftd 
some of these appear unnecessary. 

4. The Lieutenant-Governor has decided that in future the maximum 
number of local holidays which may be granted by District Officers shall he 
seven. This number should not be exceeded, and Deputy Commissioners shovl^ 
report to Commissioners before the beginning of each year the holidays propOQQ^ 
for their districts, and should fix them after the sanctipn of the Commissioner 
to the proposals has been obtained! Discretion is allowed to Heads of Depart- 
ments to grant holidays to their office establishments up to the same limit. 

6. The above rule does not apply to the last Saturdays of the months 
The Eead of an Office may give a holiday to his subordinates on the last 
Saturday of the month, provided that the state of work admits of his doing so.

Circular AV. 8-419-L. P., dated Uth March 1902. 
To 

All Commissioners and Superintendents of Divisions (Lahore 

excepted) AND TO ALL DEPUTY COMMISSIONERS IN THE PdNJAB. 

As the annual fair season in the Punjab has commenced, and applications 
made with the object of preventing the spread of plague, are now reaching this 
oflScc for either the partial or entire suppression of fairs, the Lieutenant-Governor 
considers it expedient that the procedure he is prepared to follow in such cases 
should be laid down for the guidance of all concerned. I am accordingly to 
address you as follows. 

2. Under a practice that past usage has now made customary, one or more 
6t the following measures may be adopted for the prevention of the spread of 
pi&gne at a fair, according as the fair is to be held in an infected or in a non- 
infected area, vis. : — 

(a) if the fair is to be held in a non-infectsd area, (I) the booking by 

railway at stations within infected areas may be prohibited in the 
case of all persons intending to proceed to the fair, and (2) the 
travelling by road from, or through, an infected area may be 
' prohibited in the case of all persons intending to proceed to the 

fair; and 

(b) if the fair 18 to be held in an infected area all persons may be pro- 

hibited from travelling in any manner to the place of the fair from 
places outside it. 

, ^ 3. In case such action as is indicated under either of heads (a) (1), (a) (2) 
x^ (6) in the preceding paragraph is considered desirable, I am to request that 
ike recommendations forwarded on the subject to the Local Government should 
Ije accompanied by drafts of such Notifications as are recommended for issue in 
hoth or either of the annexed Forms I, II, or in the annexed J^orm III. 

4. Should it be considered essential, in the interests of the public health, 
•that a fair should not be held at all, it is open to the Commissioner of the 
Division to stop it by the issue of an executive order. Such action should, 
however, not be taken without g«od cause, and each case of the kind should be 
■eported, with a statement of the reasons, to this office, for the information of the 
- Jiieatenant-Governor and with a view to the issue of a Notification in the Form 
III annexed. • r. .. C^nr^n](>

fers to the prosecution, under section 269, Indian Penal Code, of persons who 
may wilfully spread the infection of plague. The attention of the Lieutenant- 
Governor has, however, been called to the fact that a too liberal use of the sec- 
tioo in the prosecution of persons for carrying infection from village to village 
may not improbably result in the people distrusting the enquiries of the Plague 
officers and refusing to give information freely. His Honor observes that all 
that can be now done is to collect as correct information as possible about the 
epidemic and leave the people to deal with infection according to our advice 
or not as they think fit. He is, therefore, pleased to prescribe that prosecutions 
for spreading the infection of plague should not be instituted by Plague Officers 
themselves, but only be undertaken after the sanction of the Commissioner to 
such prosecutions has been obtained.

In the orders contained in the memorandum to the address of rH Com- 
missioners and Deputy Commissioners in the Punjab, No. 80, dated the 14th of 
January 1902, the pi*actioe of precautionary disinfection of healthy villages in 
plagne-infected areas was contemplated and periodical reports called for. li^ 
modification of these orders the undersigned is directed to invite atten- 
* Reproduo«d be- tion to paragraph 34^ of Resolution No. 3o9B.rL. P., dat^ 
low for facility of the 4th of March 1902, and to say that disinfection is lobe 
reference. applied with discretion only in places where it is likely to be 

effective. The periodical reports above referred to are now no longer reqoired. 

Extract from paragraph 34 of Besolation No. 359C.-L. P., dated 4th March 1902. 

34. * * Disiufection, of which the ralae has been kiWj established, will be applied only 
in places where it is asked for. In view, however, of the large scale on which measnres hkre 
now to be conducted and tbe impossibility of an indefinite increase of the establish n: cots ' on * 
pUgue duty, the resources of (government roast be husbanded and assistance in catryiB^^miU 
measures must therefore be given in places where the people are .willing to adopt those 
m^aaures under . conditions calculated to make them successful rather than in places where 
the people are not willing to do all that is requisite to ensure the best chances of success. 
Thus disiofectiou should not be applied by Government agency in the case of villages iinlei» 
it jgoes hand in hand with evacuation, and it should be refused in places where evacuation is 
not addpted as far as is possible : moreover, for the application of disinfection the irmined 
gangs, which have been arranged for, should be used, and to ensure that the ohemicala 
applied are good and of the proper strength they should be got only from the dep6t which is 
being started for the purchase and testing of disinfectants and for the preparation and issue 
of concentrated rolutions in a form most convenient for nse. If these conditions are not 
strictly attended to, the resources of Government will be frittered away, the disinfection 
done will be useless, and its apparent failure will give rise to a false and unduly low estimate 
in tbe minds of the people regarding the real efficacy of the measure, * *

CIRCULAR No. 1 of 1874. 
(No. 95). I 

Dated Srd January 1874, 
To . 

ALL COMMISSIONERS AND DEPUTY COMMISSIONERS, PANJAB. 
With refereiice to para 14 of the Government orders on the Municipal Report 
Inrtrrctionsfortheregu. ^^ 1872-73, enjoining tbe adoption of the system in 
lation of Octroi duties. . fo^'ce in the North- Western Provinces for the regulation 
of Octroi duties,, the annexed extracts from the North- 
western Provinces Municipal Report for 1871-72^ explaining the system and stat- 
ing the estimated annual consumption of various commodities^ are re-printed for 
the information of Civil Officecs and Municipal Committees. 

ExtraoUfron^ the Nbrth- Wutetm Pr<mnoe$ Mu^nieiwal' Revert for 1871-72. • 

16. PrimA facie a mnch higher rat& of incidence is aHowed in the Panjab than in the 
North- Western Provinces. This may be due to two causes— either that commodities are ad- 
mitted to the Panjab schedales of dutiable articles which are -excluded in* the North- Western 
Provinces, or that the rates of duty charged are higher, or possibly, there is a third cause that 
more than &0A^^tf local consumption is taxed* Bxperience in these pix>TiDce6 leads to the 
conclusion that, so long as the Octroi is restricted to- the classes of articles now taxable, and 
the duty on luxuries is kept within 3 or 4 per, cent, of value, while necessaries are charged 
much lower, say I4 or 2 per cent., the incidence of the Octroi cannot exceed a rupee per head 
as a nrnximmm, even v\ the most rich^^nd prosperous towns, without beooming » transit duty. 

In the pc»orer towns the best management will not bring the incidence to more than 10 or 12 anas. 
• ******** 

18. There are two ways in. which the Octroi may become a transit duty; The first and 
obvious ^ay is where a Municipality puts a tax on goods which enter at one gate and leave 
immediately at another. The Gk>vernment is in a position to state with confidence that this 
naked form of taxing the commerce of the country for the benefit of a few is not permitted in 
any Municipality. The second and less obvious method is where the tax is assessed on goods, 
which the importer, at the time of importation, cannot or does not declare to be for consump- 
tion or me, or for eventual exportation, but wbiot^. sooner or later, are re-exported without 
remission. <i the duty paid. For the protection of such goods two systems have been devised — 
bonded warehouses and refunds ; practically neither of these systems has worked uell. The 
Batives of the-coantiy have a strong ^sllke to the use of our bonded wareheuses. Amongst 
other reasons it is said that they destroy the secrecy of trade. 

19. Next as to refunds, the- Lieutenant Governor has insisted very strongly on these 
being granted without limit as to the time -when a persoa by whom the goods are re-exported, 
whether or not they have broken bulk or changed th^ form ; but, as a matter of fact, they 
are not claimed at all to the extent contemplated. It is urged, with some force, that the duty 
is so low that it is not worth the exporter's while, to go^ through the troublesome formalities 
necessarily involved in obtaining a drawback; 

20. These questions have had the Lieutenant Ooremor's grave consideration. On the ^ 
one hand there are the stringent orders of the Supreme Qovemment that bonded warehouses ' 
mxist be established by every Municipi^ty which levies an <>»troi^ and that drawbacks must be 
allowed on all re-exports. On the other, there is the strong wish of those most interested in 
the prosperity of business lor alow rate^of duty, with no horded warehouses and no refunds. 

21. The difficulty has been met by a compromise : the principle is this : — The Com*- 
mittees are required to determine a fair rate of duly not exceeding the maximum of 3 or 4 
per cent, on consumption for each commodity, or class of commodities, in which there is a 
trade. They are next required to estimate how much of the imports is locally consumed. The 
rate of du^ is then reduced* in the- proportion which the consumption is found to bear to the 
imports. To take an example- : A town imports Re. 1,50,000. worth of cloth, consumes two- 
thirds locally, and re-exports one-third ; a duty of 1 per cent, instead of 1 ^ is levied. Th* 
result is the same as if two-thirds ol the iii4M>rts paid the full rate, the duty being refunded on 
the remaining one-third. 

22. The equity of this principle ob^ously diepends on two points— /r#f, the fact that the 
import and export trade are in the same bands (else one man's gain would be another's 1ds8> ; 
the second, on the accuracy of the estimates of loeal consumption. As to the first, the system 
is nowhere allowed, except on the express assurance of a general identity of interest between 
the two vradep ; at> to the second, the importance ol obtianing reliable data has been earnestly im-^

pressec^on all the Committees concerned : — in fact no Committee is allowed to adopt the system 
until a trustworthy ebtimate has been framed by them and Bcmtinized and adopted by Government. 

24. A careful consideration of the returns for 1871-72 leads the Lieutenant Governor to 
believe that the following avera^ts of consumption per head for some of the chief articles are 
apprcMimately correct, and may, for the present, be used as standards for future guidance :— 

»» » • ♦ ♦ * * • • 

26. Making evt^ry allowance for less consumption by women and children, and adding in 

A CU«8 1.— Food grAinjL consumption by cattle and other animals and visitors, the true annual 

average consumption per head is probably not less than 7 maunds. 

26. The data for the calculation of the average consumption of this commodity are uncer- 
Sngar. tain. Many of the returns sent in by the Municipalities are defec- 
tive, as not distmguiehing imports of the manufactured article 

(sugar) from the raw material (rub and giir, i. ^., syrup and molasses). Again, part only of the 
raw material is manufactured, the rest being consumed unrefined by the poorer classes. 

27. With the data at present available. His Honor would not put the average higher than 
15 or 16 sdrs. The consumption is probably greater in the sugar-producing tracts than where 
Fugar is imported from a distance. 

* ♦ * ♦ • • • * 

JiO, A ssu m i ng the ghi-consuming population at about quarter of the whole and the ordi- 

flhi ^^^7 daily consumption at half a chit4ek, and allowing that a part 

of the cons\imption in the town is supplied by milch cattle of the 

town, while adjoining village** diiw i ale or nothing from the town, His Honor thinks thit 

liom 3 to 4 s^rs is a fair aveia^e oti the total population. 

• ♦ * ^ i • • * 

84. Allowing one chitt^k per diem for every family for all purposes, lighting as well as 
Clan IIL food, the averapre consumption is hardly less than 4^ s^rs say at 

the rate of Rs. 2 per head. Evasion, rather than undue taxation, 
is apprehended in respect of commodities in this class. 

36. Articles used for building jrielded Rs. 64,065, or six pie per head, representing at Bs. i 
. ciMi IV. V^^ ^^^- (rates vary), imports in value Rs. 32,03,260, or an average 

expenditure per family of five persons of nearly Rs. 8^ per annnm. 
30. In class V (Drugs, Qums, Spices and Perfumes) many heterogenous commodities have 
CitM V. ^^° brought together, and the calculation of the averages of 

consumption is extremely difficult. Drugs, gums, and perfumes 
may be left out of account as generally unproductive, but spices form an important item of 
domestic consumption, and require special notice. The total realizations, Rs. 82,384 (the best 
part of which are from spices, though the exact sum cannot be si)ecified), in this class fall at 
eight pie' per head, representing at Rs. 4 per cent., imports in value Rs. 20,69,600, or an expen- 
diture per head of Re. 1-2-4. 

♦ ♦ • ♦ • • * 

38. A competent native observer puts the average at Z\ s^rs, and the Collector of Meerot 
Cinaa VL , estimates it at two s^rs three chit ticks. Perhaps three 86rs m^ 

l>e taken as approximately correct. 

39. Piece goods and other textile fabrics, and manufactured articles of clothing and dress 
ei^gg VIL produced Rs. 1,81,636, or one anna seven pie per head. Excluding 

those towns where the tax was in force for a part only of the 
year, we have in thirty-eight towns an average annual exi)enditurc per head of Rs. 9-13-8, and of 
Rs. 6-12-1 for ten selected towns, where the imports are not markedly high or low. 

40. An estimate of the average annual exj>enditure, framed by Kaur Lachhman Singh, De- 
puty Collector of Bulandshahar, which is interesting, as coming from a native gentleman who is 
known to have paid special attention to the subject, puts the annual avei-age expenditure per 
head at Rs. i-5-6 ; similarly the Secretary to the Sahdranpiir Municipal Committee has estimated 
it at Rs. 4 per head. His Honor is not disposed to put the general average at a higher figure 
than this, but it may rise beyond it, without necessarily implying improper taxation in the case 
of towns having a rich luxurious population, or which largely Kupply by retail the country 
round. It follows then that more goods have been taxed in this class than were locally con- 
sumed ; but it must be borne in mind that the towns which are apparently the most changeable 
in this respect have not levied the full rate of 1^ per cent, ad valorem. Many charge (upon the 
principle already explained in reference to sugar) as low as eight anas, others 12 anas, and in all 
cases His Honor has directed the fixation of the duty on a well-ascertained estimate of the re- 
lation which consumption bears to imports. 

41. No reliable information as to the real average consumption of goods in this class has 
(;«I«8a VHL— Metali. ^^^ heeu obtained, the realizations were Rs. 49,367, giving an inci- 
dence of five pie per head, which is hardly felt. The average 

annual expenditure in twenty-six towns, which were taxed for the whole year, is Rs. 2-8-4 ; and 
in eleven selected towus, where the imports were not pronounced markedly high or low, Rs. 
2-1-6. This is probably high, seeing that the cooking and drinking utensils, which are the main 
urtidei ou which the tax falls, do not require to be replaced every year.

BOOK CIRCULAR No. 1 of 1874. 

CIRCULAR No. 3 of 1874. 
(No. 558.) 

DaUd 2Jiik January 187 J^. 

To 

COMMISSIONERS AMBALAH, JALANDHAR, LAHORE, MULTAN, 
DERAJAT, AND SETTLEMENT COMMISSIONER. 

In 1860, on a reference from the Derah Ghazi Khan district, the orders of the 

'p..^-*^™^^* «* i««^a f,K.«- Government of India were issued regarding the jurisdic- 

Treatment of lands trans- ^. tj.. i.ijx i!»ji_i-/» 

ierred by avulsion from tion and dommion of lands transferred by avulsion from 

British to Independent one bank to the other of a river which ordinarily forms 

Territory. the boundary between British territory and Independent 

• • States. 

^. It has now been decided that the orders of the Government of India given 
in 1860 are applicable to all such cases. 

An extract from the Government of India letter* is therefore herewith ciroula- 
• Foreign Department ^^^ ^^^ the guidance of those officers before whom cases 
No. 3631 dated 24th August of river boundary between British and Independent 
1860. territory may be brought for decision or record. 

3. It will be seen that the rule of maintaining the deep stream as the 
boundary, which obtains in cases of gain by gradual accretion or loss by gradual 
erosion, does not apply to cases of the nature referred to. In cases of avulsion 
the land transferred is held to undergo no change in respect of jurisdiction Gt 
dominion. 

It has been further ruled by the Panjab Government, that the rule affirmed by 
the Government of India is to be regarded as having been in operation from the 
date of issue of the orders hereto appended, and for no anterior period. In decid- 
ing future boundary disputes to which the rule is applicable, reference must accord- 
ingly be made to the status of August 1860 as the basis of decision, subject to 
such modification as, under the operation of the rule regarding gradual accretion or 
erosion, will have to be made ; but no transfer, by avulsion, of land capable of 
identification, which has taken place subsequent to the (urders of I860, will be held 
to have affected the boundary. 

4. The question of proprietary or other subordinate rights in the land is not 
affected by these orders. 

Extract, paras 9, 10, and 12, of a letter No. 3631, dated 24tth Augiigt 1860, from the Depwty 
Secretary to the Government of India^ to the Secretary to the Government Panjab, 

9. The Governor General in Council directs me to observe that is not correct 

in assuming that, as betwixt sovereigns, the only safe rule of practice is, that the main river 
should be the boundary irrespective of all other considerations. The rule is such only in cases 
of alluvion, and not in those of avulsion. 

When a boundary river suddenly quits its bed. and cuts for itself a new channel, it ceases 
to be the boundary, and the Government which ruled over the territory cut ofE by the change 
in the river continues to rule it. 

10. The above principle has been laid down in the case of the rivers which are in some 
places to form the new boundary between Nepil and Oudh. It has been ruled that these 
rivers shall continue to be the boundary, if their encroachments on either side are only gradual, 
and in the ordinary course of alluvion and diluvion, but not in the case of sudden changes in. 
the bed of the deep stream whereby land capable of identification is cut away. 

12. The question of proprietary right in the land, I am to add, is a totally different one 
and remains unaffected by the decision on the general question.

1 Moharrir ... 14 

1 Chaprasi ... 7 

and an allowance of 2 per mensem for stationery is in each case allowed. The pay 
of the chaprasis has been fixed at Rupees 7, in order that persons who can read and 
write, and will therefore be able to relieve the Moharrirs, may be appointed. 

5. The Commissioner of Customs has signified his readiness to assist in the 
registration of trade along the Dehli, Hissar, and Satlaj Customs lines. The posts 
on these lines selected for registration are given in Appendix 11. For the 
remuneration of the oflScers of the Customs Department appointed to register trade 
at these posts, an amount of Rupees 150 per mensem has been sanctioned by 
Govemmnnt, the distribution of which will rest with the Commissioner of Customs. 



6. The East India Railway trade enters and leaves the province at tho 
Jamna bridge only, and it has been ascertained that a return of this trade can b« 
famished by tho Company without additional expense. 

7. The aggregate of the external traffic, which is conveyed by the Scinde 
Panjab and Dehli Railway can only be obtained by a compilation from the invoices 
of goods received and despatched at each station on the line ; and to effect this 
compilation a separate establishment of 2 clei'ks on an aggregate of Rupees 100 per 
mensem has been sanctioned. 

8. Returns of the amount of timber imported into the province from the 
north by the main rivers of the Panjab will be obtained from the Forest Depart- 
ment. 

9. The import and export trade by the river Indus will be registered, as here- 
tofore, by the agency of tho Superintendent of Indus Conservancy at Sakkar, and

each consignment of goods in order of transit, the number and description of loadg, 
and the weight of each class of goods. The latter will be determined, in case of an 
invoice accompanying the goods, by such invoice, or by the declaration of the person 
accompanying the consignment. 

12. To provide for oases in which an estimate of weight will have to be com- 
puted upon the amount of carriage, a schedule of standard loads will be supplied to 
each statistic writer by the Deputy Commissioners (Appendix VI). The register 
will be in the form of a book, and each consignment will be entered as it passes the 
registration post, without classification under the separate descriptions of goods. 
Two registers (III and III A) will be maintained for imports and exports. In column 
1 of these registers, the number to be entered will be that standing opposite the 
same description of goods in column 1 of the classified list of articles with their 
tariff values (Appendix VI). 

13. The contents of the day book will be abstracted each day in^^a Khationi, 
II —Khationi Registers, t^® form of which is given in Appendix IV and IV A. 

These Khationis will comprise separate entries for each 
description of goods upon different pages of the register, two or more pages being 
allotted to each class of goods, and the entries for each class being continued on 
another page when these are completed, to which reference will be made at the 
close of the previous entries. This system of account is well known to natives, and 
is used by Patwaris in the form of a diary and abstract, as well as by wholesale 
dealers. The Khationi registers (one for imports and one for exports) will show 
for each description of goods the date, the weight of the goods in maunds, extracted 
from the daily register, the value of the goods, and the place of despatch of the 
consignment. The value will be computed by reference to the tariff value, which 
will be given in one of the columns of the classified list (Appendix VI), and which 
will be previously determined by the Deputy Commissioner according to the market 
value of each class of goods. The number assigned to any description of goods in 
the classified list will be entered, together with the names of the goods, at the 
heading of the Khationi Registers. The total amount of any description of goods 
passing the station in one day will be entered in one line in the Khationis, and the 
totals of weight and value struck for the day. 

14. A monthly abstract of the Khationi Registers, in the form given in 
^ Appendix V and V A., will be prepared for each post 

of^o^^BigteteTs by the statistic writer aad forwarded to the Deputy 

Commissioner. 

15. The preceding paras explain the duties of the statistical writer, which may 
be thus summarized : 

I. To keep daily registers of Imports and Exports in the forms given in Ap- 
pendix III and III A. 

II. To abstract daily the entries in these Registers into the Khationi Regis- 
ters, the forms of which are given in Appendix IV and IV A. 

III. To submit monthly abstracts of the Khationis in the forms given in Ap- 
pendix V and V A. to Deputy Commissioners. 

16. Forms of the above mentioned Appendices must be supplied to the statis- 
tical writer by Deputy Conimissionei-a. The classified list with tariff values (Appen- 
dix VI) must also be supplied to him to enable him to fill up the numbers in co- 
lumn 1 of Appendix III and III A. and in the headings of Appendix IV and IV A. 
the weight of goods (when it has to be calculated upon the description of carriage) 
for entry in Appendix III and III A. and the value to be entered in column 3 of Ap- 
pendix IV and IV A.

values and standard loads, up the No. of maunds forming an average load in the 
district for each description of carnage and the tariff value per maund of each class 
of goods. The latter should be the wholesale market value according to district 
averages. Deputy Commissioners should be careful to supply a copy of the claasified 
list thus filled up, to each statistical writer with the other registers. When the 
tariff values obviously need correction the Deputy Commissioner should correct them, 
but no alteration should be made on account of slight fiuctuatious of market value. 

18. The officers of the Customs Department, under whose supervision the re- 
turns for registering posts on the Customs line (Appendix II) will be prepared, should 
be supplied with the necessaiy forms, including the classified list, and copies of this 
Circular in fSffglisli and Vernacular. 

19. The Deputy Commissioner will submit quarterly statements in English to 
this office, compiled from the abstracts furnished by the statistical writers of the dis- 
trict staff, and Customs Department, 

20. The following extracts from Financial Commissioner's CirciJar 45 of 1 866, 
regarding certain points requiring special attention, are applicable to the present 
arrangemeut& 

"Great care should be taken that registeiing officials thoroughly understand 
" what is required of them before they enter upon their duties, and the Financial 
" Commissioner confidently expects that no exertions will be spared to secure re- 
*' liable statistics, for, unless tolerable accuracy can be attained, a vast amount of 
" labor and considerable expense will be incuiTod to little or no purpose. An accu- 
*' rate record will not however be secured unless these registering stations are peri* 
" odically inspected by trustworthy officials, who will not only ascertain that goods 
" passing up and down are carefully registered, but also that traders ore not subject- 
'* ed to delay and annoyance. 

" With bullock train carts and with can*iage attached to a regiment, and in 
" other cases, it may not be possible to specify the description of goods. In such 
" cases it will suffice to state in general terms whether the carts are laden or not, 
" and if laden such information regarding the goods carried as may be readily 
" obtained ; and in the absence of more precise information the following entries will 
** be accepted. ** Miscellaneous regimental effects," " Miscellaneous bullock train 
" goods." * Any attempt on the part of registering officials to oppress traders 
" should meet with severe and condign punishment." 

21. Care will have to be taken that the statistical writers do not levy any 
foes or transit duty from traders. The writer will be appointed by the district 
officer, who will be held responsible that no such abuse occurs. 

, 22. The above arrangements are to come into fbrce, as above stated, from the 
1st April next. Deputy Commissioners should therefore proceed at once to appoint 
the sanctioned establishment, and arrange for the substitution of the new system 
for that now in force, on that date, 

PART II.— Internal Trade. 

23. The compilation of returns showing the exchange of traffic between the 
different towns of the province will now be effected upon the basis of the information 
furnished by Municipal Committees and Octroi lessees. 

The following is a recapitulation of the orders hitherto in force for securing 
these returns, which will continue in operation.

24 Where the collection of octroi duties is let out on contract a clause must 
Circular 1 of 1872. ^ inserted in the lease, rendering the contractor responsi- 

ble for accurately registering exported as well as imported 
goods, and care is to be taken that this condition is fulfilled. Where the octroi 
collections are under du'ect management, care should be taken that the officials 
employed in collecting the octroi revenue, and in registering the trade, make 
accurate returns of articles exported as well as of those imported. No extra 
establishment is required for this purpose. The same persons who register the 
imports can easily register the exports which pass by the same routes. 

25. The Financial Commissioner finds it necessary to direct that in every 
Book Circular XXIV of lease of the farm of octroi, a condition must be inserted 

1872. obliging the contractor to furnish monthly returns of the 

quantities of goods of every kind imported and exported. Deputy Commissioners 
should see that this condition is complied with. ^ 

26. The form given in Appendix II with Circulai' 22 of 1872, submitted with 
the Annual Reports on Municipal Taxation, does not furnish the particulars of 
imports and exports required for the purpose of compiling statistics of internal 
trade. The Financial Commissioner accordingly finds it necessary to prescribe a 
separate form for giving the required information, based upon the schedule of 
articles liable to octroi. This form will be found at Appendix VII, and should bo 
filled up and submitted every year with the report on municipal taxation. 

27. A copy of this Circular should be communicated to Municipal Committees 
and their earnest co-operation requested in giving effect to its provisions in regard to 
the registration of internal trade.

BOOK CIRCULAR No, 6 op 1874. 

CIRCULAR No. 11 op 1874. 

Daied Lahore, the 20th March 187i^ 

ALL COMMISSIONERS AND DEPUTY COMMISSIONERS^ PANJAB. 

J, . .^ - - _ The Excise Law of the Panjab in regard to spirits 

liauJ^ fermented ^nd fermented liquors is contained in Act X of 1871 and 

^ Act XVI of 1863. 

2. Under these Acta the Financial Commissioner, as the chief Revenue autho- 
rity, is empowered to frame rules subject, in certain cases, to sanction jf the Local 
Government. 

3. The accompanying rules, which have received the sanction of Government, 
are herewith circulated, in supersession of all previous orders on the subject. 

The following is a list of the rules, with the sections under which they are 
framed in each case : — 

Rules under Act X of 1871, regarding — 

L — Distilleries worked after the English method (Section 6), page 8. 
II. — Distilleries for the manufacture of Native spirits (Section 8), page 12. 
IIL — Licenses for construction and working of breweries (Section 9). 
IV. — Form and conditions of licenses (Section 33), page 15. 
V. — Excise oflScers entitled to rewards (Section 79) page 19. 

Rules under Act XVI of 1863, regarding the levy of excise on spirits used ex^ 
clusively in arts and manufactures, or in chemistry (Section 2), page 20. 

To these are added — 

Rules for the supervision and control of the Excise revenue, page 21. 
Rules regarding intoxicating drugs and opium are issued separately, in Book 
Circular IX of 1874. 

4. The Rules now issued contain the following provisions, which are new, to 
which attention is specially directed. 

Rules 41 to 47 contain provisions differing from the rules hitherto in force in 
r^rd to the rates of licenses for the sale of spirits imported or manufactured after ^ 
the English method. 

The low rates hitherto authorized for staging bungalows have been enhanced, 
tnd these rates must be introduced on the expiry of existing licenses. 

Rule 47. — The number of licenses hereafter granted for the sale of rum is to 
be limited, and the licenses are to be put yearly to auction, as is done in the case 
of licenses for the retail vend of Native spirits. 

The rules require no further comment. 

5. In Panjab Notification No. 585 dated 20th April 1874 Police Officers above 
ttie rank of Sergeant have been invested under Section 46, Clause 2 of the Excise 
Act, with the same powers in respect of the seizure and search for spirituous and 
fermented liquors of every description as are given them by Clause 1 in regard to 
opium. 

As regards Revenue Officers, Deputy Commissioner have only to appoint Tah- 
sildars Excise Darogahs, under Section 39 of the Act, to give the necessary powers 
to them and their establishments, _^

25 ^ FINAXCIAL OIRCULAH ORDERS. [ Rbookd 

6. The following instructions as 'to the use of hydrometers are also re-publish^ 
ed, with slight additions, from previous CircaJais : — 

Ilydromiten. 

Circular 14 of 1871. The following hydrometers are at present in use : — 

I. — Sikes' hydrometers. This is a valuable and delicate instrument, fitted for 
testing spirits of various strength by the addition of numbered weights, and accom- 
panied by a book of tables showing the strength of spirits at various temperatures. 
Instruments of this kind are to be kept with great care in the Deputy Commissioner's 
office, and are not to be Used, except for the purpose of testing other instruments, 
or by the officer in charge cf the Sadr Distillery at head-quarters. 

Hy4fft»eters of this kind may be procured from the Financial Commissioner's 
Office, and all such instruments which are out of adjustment should be sent to tho 
Financial Commissiouer's Office. 

II. — Stevensoii*s hydrometer. This is a plain instrument of brass (sometimes 
gilt), marked on the uarrow side of the scale stem P. 8(1° 

The scale shows the strength of spirits 25^* above and 25® below proof when the 
liquor is at a temperature of 80° of Fahrenheit's thermometer. As the instrumeut 
can only be used for testing spirits at a temperature of 80° Fahrenheit, it is not 
ordinarily suitable for India, and no more hydrometers of this description will be 
issuedl 

III. — Hydrometers of brajss made in the Panjah. These are the instruments 
in common use at cestral distilleries. They are supplied on requisition to the 
Financial Commissioner's office. They are adjusted to test spirits at a temperature 
of 90° Fahrenheit. They have only firee marks on them — one at the top for proo( 
another in the middle for 25° below proof, and a third low down on tbe stem for 
50° below proof. Formerly they were not accompanied with weights, 'but it has 
been found that a more accurate adjustment can be secured by using moveable 
weights. The instrument is also by this means kept at a convenient size. 

The accompanying sketch * shows the common hydrometer with the three 
weights. When, with. tlie smallest weight (I) placed on the stem just above tlie 
lower bulb (a), and with the spirit at 90° Fahreuheit, the iu?jtrument sinks in the 
spirit untill the highest mark on the stem is level with the surface of the spirit, 
the spirit is of full proof. When, with the middle weight (2) placed on the in- 
strumeut, and the spirit at 90° Fahrenheit, it sinks until the middle mark on the 
stem is level with the surface of the spirit, the spirit is 25° beiow proof. When, 
with the largest weight (3) applied, and the spirit at 90° Fahrenheit, the instniment 
sinks until the lowest mark is level with the «urface of the spirit, the spurit is bff 
below proo£ 

From this it will be seen that instruments with which weights have been sup- 
plied are of no use without the weights. Moreover, as the instruments are roughly 
made, and adjusted by filing the weights, the weights of one instrument cannot be 
used for another. If weights are lost, the instrument must be re-adjusted by 
means of the standard Sikes' Hydrometer in sphrit raised to 90° Fahrenheit and 
the new weights made so as to make the two correspond. 

iCare should therefore be. taken that the weights are not lost. 

There may still bo some of the common hydrometers in use, which were adjust- 
ed without weights. Deputy Commissioners should ascertain by comparison with

the standard hydrometer the correctness of these instruments, and guard against 
the use of tiiose for which weights are necessary, without the weights being applied. 

Hydrometers are liable to be thrown out of adjustment by the action of the 
acids in the spirit upon the metal of which they are made. In order to retard such 
deterioration, the Excise Officers should be instructed every time that the hydrome- 
ter is used, to \yash it thoroughly iu pure water, and dry it can^fully with cotton- 
wool 

Hydrometers of this kind may be procured from the Financial Commissioner's 
office ; when out of adjustment they can oi-dinarily be adjusted by comparison with 
tlie standard Sykes* Hydrometer, or they may be returned to^ the Financial Com- 
missioner's office for adjustment. 

The spirit to be tested is poured into a copper vessel kept for trials, and 
brought to-a temperature of 90° Fahrenheit When; the temperature oi^tjie spirit 
to Ih) examined is above 90° Fahrenheit, the copper vessel, with the spint contained 
hi it, should be sunk, in a porous vessel containing wHter until it is brought down 
to that temperature ; when the temperature has to be artificially raised, this may 
be best done by placing it over a fire in a large pot filled with sand, or in a vessel 
filled with wai*m ashes, or hot water ; as if the copper vessel itself is placed on the 
fire, it will' be difficult to obtain a uniform temperature. 

The spirit should in every case be thoroughly stirred, so>aa*to ensure that the 
thermometer indicates the true temperature. The hydrometer is then thorou<j;hly 
immersed in the spirit, and kept in it sufficiently long to admit, of the metal attain- 
ing the same temperature as the spirit, after which it is allowed to rise till it is at 
rest

for future j^uidance. 

3. The mere fact of a decree aflect mjr the proprietirry riglft in «r possession of

either from the Civil Court executing the decree or from the Tahsildar. on r(?port of

orders on the subject, which are consolidated or superseded is appended to this and 
the above quoted Oircuhu*. , 

3. The Rules herewith published have received the sanction of Government. 
They comprise — 

liules under Act X of 1871, regarding — 

I. The farm of the duties leviable on the retail sale of intoxicatmg drugs, 
not iucluding opium (Sect 23). 

II. The transport of Gdiijah, Bhang, and Charas (Sect. 40). 

III. The import of Chanis into the Panjib from the territories of His High- 
ness the Amir of Kdshg^r and Yarkand by auy route over the Himalayan passes 
which lie to the south of His Highuess* damiuions (Sect. 40). 

IV. The sale of Charas at the Pdlampdr Fair, and its transport therefrom 
(Sect 40). 

y. Special rules for the transport and possession of Charas in the Eingra 
District (Sect 40;. 

VI. Excise Ofl5cers entitled to rewards (Sect. 79). 

RuUi rtlaiing to Opium grown in the Panjdhy under S^rt. 49, Act IV of 1872, the 
Paujdb Laws Act, and Act XX VI of 1872, the Pavjdh Opium Law Amend- 
ment Act, 

4. The rules for import of Charas into the Panjab from the territories of the 
Rules for the supervision ^mfr of Kiibiigar and Yiirkand are new. The special 

and control of the Excise indulgences contained in them are only accorded to inoi- 
Revenue. (Intoxicating porters of K ash gir and Y6rkaud Charns across the Him- 
Drugs and Opium). alayau passes to the south of the Amir's dominions. For 

its import from other countries, and by other routes, the previous rules are main- 
tained. Separate instructions will be issued to the District Officers concerned, the 
number of whom will be limited. 

5. Tbe rules relating to opium grown in the PanjAb have been separately 
published in the Paujdl) Gazette with Government Notification No. 1244 dated 24th 
September 1873, but are repeated here for convenient reference, together with the 
forms prescribed under them in Fiuaucial Commissioner's Book Circular No. II of 
1874. ^ 

6. The principal changes introduced by the rules are as follows: — 

The poppy may be cultivated freely in all parts of the Panjdb, except in the 
districts of the Dehli and Hissdr Divisions, where it is absolutely prohib- 
ited. Any person transgressing this rule in the latter districts is liable 
to the penalties prescribed in Sect 50 of the Panjib Laws Act 

An acreage duty of Rs. 2 is to be levied on every acre of poppy cultivation. 
Tne mode of granting permission to cultivate, and of registering the cul- 
tivation, iu fully described in the rules. The memoradum given by the 
patwiiri to the cultivator (Rule 9), called the cultivator's licence, need 
not be stamped. 

7. Purchases of opium or poppy respectively may be made from the culti- 
vators by persons holding licences for — (1) wholesale vend of Pauj4b-grown opium; 
(2^ retail vend of opium ; (3) purchase of standing crop of poppy. 

The rules under the notification above referred to provide for (1) and (3).

agreement regarding the farm of such monopoly to which reference is made in rule 
6 under Act X of 1671, and the form of which is given as Appendix I, will apply. 
This agreement docs not require a stamp. 

The form of licence for retail vend of opium, whether Panj4b-grown or other, 
as well as of intoxicating drugs, is given as Appendix II. 

8. Cultivators are not allowed under these rules to consume their own opium 
or " post" They must buy any such drug for their own consumption from the 
retail vendor. 

The reason for this is that in the Panj^b a mixed system of taxing the pro- 
ducts of the poppy has been adopted — (1) by an acreage duty, (2) by a monopoly of 
retail vend. 

In order to maintain the income derived from the latter source, all private con- 
sumption and private sale must be checked, and this would be impossible ifpennis- 
sion were given to cultivators of the plant to use their own opium. If it were con- 
sidered desirable to levy the whole Excise revenue derivable from Paiijab-grown 
opium by the acreage duty, the rate would be fixed at a higher figure than Rs. 2 
per acre. 

9. By Panjab Goveniment Notification No. 585 dated 20th April 1874, all 
police officers above the rank of sergeant are invested with the same powers in respect 
of the seizure of, and search for, intoxicating drugs of every description, and the ar- 
rest of persons found in possession thereof, as are conferred upon them by Clause 1, 
Section 46 of the Excise Act in regard to opium. This Notification was issued 
under Clause 2 of the same Section. 

10. The powers of the A'bkari Darogha and his establishment in respect of such 
seizure, search, and arrest, are secured by Sees. 42 to 45 of the Act. 

In order to give the necessary powers to Tahsildirs and their establishments, 
Deputy Commissioners should appoint the former Excise Darogha under Sec. 39 of 
the Act. 

An abstract of the points in the new Opium Rules, which most affect producers, 
will shortly be prepared and circulated in the vernacular for distribution to zamin- 
d^rs. 

11. As regards opium grown out of the PanjAb, the provisions of Sec. 65 of 
the Excise Act are in furce. Under this Section every person other than a licensed 
vendor (t. e. a licensed retail vendor or his agent), who has in his possession a 
greater quantity of such opium than 5 tolas weight, is liable to fine and confiscation. 
Licensed retail vendors, tiiut is, the person holding the monopoly of retail vend, and 
his agents, are allowed to make their own arrangements for the purchase of the di-ug 
in places beyond the British frontier, subject to the rules and regulations which may 
he in force within the provinces through which the drug will pass. In all such cases 

♦ A H' xrv the importer should take out a pass* from the place 

^1^^^ ' where he purchases the opium, as well as from the district 

where he is licensed to sell it; and when that place is in foreign territory, he should 
apply to the Collector of the nearest district. Importers should be made to under- 
stand that if their drugs are not covered by a pass, or if the packages are found open 
in the North-Wcstem Provinces or in any place where they are not authorized to 
sell by retail to the Government farmers, the opium will be liable to confiscation, 
and they themselves to punishment, under the Excise Laws, Foreign opium may 
be disposed of by licensed retail vendors according to the terms of their licences, in 
which no distinction is drawn between Panjab-grown and other opium. 

Panjab Govt. Notification No. 39 dated 6th January 1873 exempts all districts 
lA the PaujAb from the operation of Sec. 18 of the Excise Act, whiph provides that

opinm shall be supplied to licensed ▼endors from the Government stores, and that 
no other description of opium shall be sold by such vendors. The penalty provided 
in Sec. 67 for possession of opium other than that supplied to them from the Gov- 
ernment stores is therefore not in force in the Panjab. 

12. The form for reporting annually the arrangements made for the farm of 
monopoly of retail vend of intoxicating dnign and opium, which is pre8cril>ed lu 
para I of the rules for the control and supervision of Excise revenue obtained from 
those sources, is new, and should be submitted as soon as the arrangements for the 
year are completed.

BOOK CIRCULAR No. 10 of 1874. 
CIRCULAR No. 21 op 1874. 



Dated the 22nd June 1874. 



ALL COMMISSIONERS AND DEPUTY COMMISSIONERS, PANJAB. 

The GovernmcDt of India having prescribed that the prices current furaisked 

in accordance with Book Circulai* X of 1872, shall show 

pJcTc^nf ^r^rrS^?' *•>« ?"•=«« "^ food-graiua sold per nipee in terms of the old 

Government ser of 80 tolahs, and not of the ser as defined 

in Act XXXI of 1871, a revised form for reporting these prices current is herewith 

circulated under order of Government, which is to be adopted in future. 

2. Under orders similarly received, the returns will hereafter be made fort- 
nightly* on the 15th and last day of every month, and not, as heretofore, weekly. 

3. Fractions of a ser are henceforward to be shown in chittaks, not in 
decimals. 

4. The following instructions contain all the previous orders on the subject 
which are still in force, and Financial Commissioner's Book Circulars X of 1872, 
XIX of 1873, XX of 1874, and XXIV of 1873, are hereby supei-seded. 

The retail prices obtaining at the places named in the return, t. e, at the head^^ 
quarters of each district, are to be shown, and no averages struck for other places 
in the district. 

6. Copy of a letter No. 6—150 dated 20th March 1872, from the Secretary to 
the Government of India in the Revenue Department, directing that officers may be 
made aware of the importance of securing accuracy in these returns, is reprinted 
from Book Circular X of 1872. This letter should be carefully perused, and the 
instructions in para 3, in regai'd to the work of preparing the returns being entrusted 
to competent officers, strictly carried out 

6. No entries showing the prices of grain need bo made in the weekly raiii- 
fall returns. 

7. The returns of prices entered in the annual statement No. XXXII, sub- 
mitted with the Be venue lieport, will in future be in terms of the old Government 
ser of 80 tolahs. 



Ko, 6—160 dated 20th March IS72, from Secretary to the Government of India^ to the Seere- 

tary to the government Panjdb. 

In reference to the Resolution of this Department, No. 11 dated the 18th January last, in 
which a revised form was prescribed for exhibiting the current prices of food-grains in different 
provinces, I am directed to express the desire of the Governor-General in Council, that all 
officers concerned in the preparation and submission of these statements may be made fully- 
aware of the importance of securing truly accurate returns. 

2. For commercial and statistical purposes, the value of rigid accuracy in these statements 
can hardly be over-estimated, and the degree in which they affect the financial economy of the 
Empire may be appreciated from the fact that a very considerable portion of the military ex- 
penditure in India — no less a sum than thirty lakhs a year, taking the average of the last three 
years — is expended on the faith of these prices current in compensation for dearness of provi- 
sions and forage. If, as is believed to have been hitherto the case, the prices shown in the 
official statements have a tendency to range above the lowest actual rates at which the articles 
can be purchased in the market, a needless expenditure is involved in the award of such com- 
pensation. 

3. The Government of India considers that the work of preparing the prices current 
should be entrusted to some competent officers in the tahslls or districts, who would be held 
personally answerable for their accuracy. In each district an officer, not below the rank of 
beputy Collector or Assistant Collector, should be especially charged with and made personallj 
responsible for checking these returns by personal enquiries, and each price current should bear 
the attestation of such officer that he had satisfied himself of the accuracy of the statement. 
To enable him to do this, it will be essential for him, not merely to commence enquiries on the 
day the statement is to be presented., but to keep him»2lf informed from day to day of all varia* 
tions of the market.

4. It is believed that the plan sugfpjested above, if carefully carried out, will be sufficient 
not only to keep within bounds the immoderate expenditure noticed in parat,'raph 2 of this 
letter, but also to lay the foundation of a system for the accurate record of statistics of the 
utmost public importance ; and I am accordingly desired to request that, with the permission 
of His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor, such orders may be issued as may seem best calculated 
for ensuring the highest attainable accuracy in these statements.

CIRCULAR No. 24 op 1874.. 
(No. 4416).. 

UcU^d the 30th June 1874. 

To 

ALU COMMISSIONERS AND ^DEPUTY COMMISSIONERS; PAN JAB. 

It is requested that the accompanying notice, in English and Vemacukvr, 
A^.*„^i .. r.t. , explaming. the provisions of Section. 39 of. the General 
oftS^duty. ^^^^^P ^^*' regarding adjudication ot the value of the 

stamp to which an instrument is liable, may be distribut- 
ed, and posted. at Court-houses for general information. 

The Financial Commissioner has noticed that applications for adjudication under Section 
99 of the Geaeral Stamp Act are. seldom. made, while the number of punishments for wiltul 
breach of the Stamp Law continues to be large. 

The chief cause of this seems to hun to be that the possibility of obtaining adjudicatiwi . in 
doubtful ca^s is not known among the people, and he desires therefore to. draw especial attoc- 
tion to the provisions of the ISection in question, which are as follows : — 

"When any instrument chargeable with stamp duty under this Act, whether previously 
stamped of not, is brought ta.thc Collector, aod ttie person bringing it desires to have the opi- 
nion of that officer as to the duty with which it is so chargeable, and pays a-ice of five rupees, 
the Collector shall assess and charge the duty to which in his judgment the instfumentis liabW ; 
and upon payment of such duty or of such sum as, with the duty already paid thereon, is equal 
to the duty so assessed and charged, and of the penalty, if any, incurred through the instrument 
having been executed on/insufficieatly stamped paper, shall certify, by endorsement on such 
instrument, that. the full duty with which it is chargeable under this Act has l)ecn paid. 

"The instrument shall thereupon be deemed to be duly stamped, and shall be receivable in 
evidence or otherwise in all courts and public offices as if onginally executed on paper beaiiau 
the proper stamp. 

" Provided. that nothing contained in the former part of this Section shall authorize the 
Collector to make any such endorsement on Bills of Exchange, Promissory Notes, or instruments 
ohargeable with stamp duty of one ana when brought to* him. on. unstamped or iusuSciently 
Btamped paper subsequent to the drawuig or execution thereof." 

The effect of applying to the Collector and paying up the sums adjudged by him. to be due 
on the instrunwnt is, that the -executant is not liable to be prosecuted for a wilful breach of the 
atamp law, and* the instrument is rendered), valid for all purposes of the Stamp- Act. 

The applicatdon may be made by either the execuUiut or the holder of the instrument, antl 
in neither case will the applicant be liable to prosecution. If the application is made within

ALL COMMISSIONERS AND DEPUTY COMMISSIONERS, PANJAB. 

In Paujab Goverumeut Notification, Fiuaiicial Depaitmeut, No. 885 dated 

^ ^ „ .,. 10th Juue, ameuded rules were published tor the supply 

Court Fees Stamps, sup- . \ t- i i ^ n ^. /• • j- i^ 

plj and account ui— and account ot Court Jbees stamps (nicludiug Proces* 

Fees Stamps) under clauses (a) and (d) of sectiofl 27 of 

Act VII of 1870— the Court Fees Act. 

The Notification is hereto annexed, 

2. By these rules, discount at the rate of 3 pies in the rupee is allowed on 
the purchase of Court Fees and Process Fees Stamps, subject to certain restrictions 
as to the value and quantity of the stamps sold (Rule IV) wh^u the purchases aro 
zuade by licensed vendors troui ex-otiicio vendors. 

3. Ex-officio vendors are not, as such, entitled to receive discount, but under 
Bule XI Treasurers or their agents at the Sadr or Tahsil Treasuries may bo 
appointed licensed vendors, and thereupon they will be entitled to discount on the 
purchase of Court Fees Stamps and Process Fees Stamps for cash. Care must be 
taken that ex-othcio vendors, who are also appointed licensed vendors under thig 
rule, do not ttike credit for discount on account of Stamps which they hold in their 
capacity of ex-othcio vendors, and for which they have not paid in cash. The regis- 
ters prescribed for Treasurei-s aro those contained in Appendices 111 to Vll, inclu- 
eive, of the Panjab Stamp Manual, and no discount should ever be allowed, except 
in regard of Stumps which have boen shown in the Treasurer's Daily Book ot Re- 
ceipts and Issues (Appendix No. Ill) lus " sold on discount," of which the value, as 
given in the last column, has been paid into the Government Treasury at the Sadr 
or Tahsil, as the case may be, after deduction of the discount. 

4. The Financial Commissioner may, under Rule VIII, allow licensed vendors 
to be supplied on credit, but this permission will be seldom necessary, and will not 
be granted to persons combining the olhce of ex-otiicio and licensed vendor, except 
under very peculiar circumstances. 

5. The supply of the old black and red " Talabanah" Stamps in the Panjab is 
nearly exhausted, and it has been ruled by Government that Adhesive Court 
Pees Labels are in future to be used for Process Fees as soon as the old supply is 
completely spent 

The result of this will be that no distinction can be preserved m the accounti^ of 
cx-officio vendors between " Court Fees" and 'Process Fees" Stamps, and the columns 
in the registers, to which allusion has been made above, whicli refer to Process 
Fees Stamps, can be omitted as soon as the distinctive ** Talabanah" Stamps are 
exhausted. 

6. The Chief Court have pointed out, in their Memo No. 8—1490 dated 
16th June 1874, that returns of the amount of Adhesive Court Fees Labels used 
for Process Fees can be secured by the maintenance of Register No. XX prescri- 
bed in Chief Couit's Book Circukr No. XXlll of 1869, which has been strictly 
cujofued.

Estimate to be farmed as to the damage caused, the Deputy Commissioner shall

ripened crop, and of the crop which would have ripened but for the manoeuvres. 
Column 10 will contain the cash compensation proposed. Where this amount

column 8, a cause should be assigned for such ditfereuce. 

VII. Objection to the entries made in these columns will be recorded with 
the proceedings, and orders passed thereon by the officer determining the com^

ted to the persons concerned, who shall be called upon to state whether they agree 
to the amount of the award, and their statement shall be briefly recorded. If the 
parties agree to the award, the Deputy Commissioner shall forward a demand 
statement, in the torm given in Appendix C, to the military authorities. If the^ 
parties do not agi*ee to the award, it shall be competent to them to institute a 
suit in the Court competent to decide such claims under Section 16 of the Land 
Acquisition Act, and the proceedings shall thenceforth be in accordance with the 
rules for such suits which may be in force for the time being. 

X. The military authorities will be bound by the award of the Deputy Com- 
missioner, aud will remit the amount immediately on receipt of the demand state- 
ment forwarded to them under Hule VIII. The amount will then be distributed 
■without further delay by the Deputy Commissioner. 

XI. As the compensation determined under Rule VI TI will cover the whole 
of the damage done to the crops, no ren)is8ion or suspension of land revenue or 
cesses will be necessary, and applications for such remission or suspension will not 
be entertained by the Deputy Commissioner^

Patent iron sugar-cane mills, invented by Mr. Thomson of Behea, in the Arrah 
Sugar-cane mills. district, where they are largely used by cultivators, have 

recently been tried in the Amritsar and Jalandhar districts, and the experiments 
have been so far successful that the Financial Commissioner has been directed by 
Goveniment to communicate the results to all District Officers with a view to their 
being introduced into the Panjab through the agency of District Committees.

2. There are two kinds of apparatus,—-* cheap one, with two rollers, costing 
Rs. 50, and a better one, with 3 rollers costing from Rs. 150 to Rs 200. 

3. The large mill appears to be the most successful, combining a large saving 
of labor with effective crushing. A set of instructions for working this mill can be 
obtained from the vendors, Messrs. Thomson and Mylne, of Behea, Arrah district. 

4. Deputy Commissionws are requested to bring the subject to the notice of 
District Committees. There is every probability that if two mills of the largest 
size were purchased by them, and let out at the proper season in districts where 
sugar-cane is grown, the advantages possessed by such an apparatus would be as 
keenly appreciated in the Paujab as they have been in parts of Bengal. 

The annexed demi-official letter from Dr. Henderson, to the address of the 
Secretary to Government Paujab, gives some further particulars on the subjeCt, 



X>emi'Official letter dated 2Zrd Jathe 1873 f from DR. G. Hendrbson, Catenttay to the Secretary, 
to Government Panjab, 

Mr. Thomson, of Behea, in the Arrah district, has Invented a mill for extracting sugar 
or lather the juice from sugar-cane, and it is such a great success that I think the Panjab Go- 
vernment should try to introduce it into the Panjab. The mill is all of iron, is made in Calcutta^ 
and is so simple that it cannot go out of order ; the native cultivators in the Arrah district 
use nothing else, and the machine is so light and portable that it can be sent about the country 
-wherever there is work for it. 

The whole affair is made of iron as I have said, and has the following advantages : — 

let. One very light bullock ean work it, whereas the ordinaiy sugar rollers require 
two strong oxen or two buffaloes, 

2nd. In tho same apace of time it does about four times the work of the- ordinary native 
mill. 

3rd The juice is much more completely removed from the cane. 

4th. It is portable, and can be moved to any part of the country where it is wanted.. 

6th. If any part breaks, it cau be replaced at once from Calcutta. 

There are two kinds of apparatus, — a cheap one, with two rollers costing Rs. 60, and a bet- 
ter one» with three rollers, costing about Rs. 160 to Rs. 200. I think Mr. Thomson has tried all 
8orts of improved agricultural itaplements^ and he says this is the only one which the native cuK 
livatOT has taken to in earnest, and so great is the demand that the mills canniot be manufac- 
tured fast enough. Mr. Thomson owns many thousand acres of land, which, he lets to native 
oaltivators,; he first got a sugar-mill made at home, but found it unsuitable^ so he modified it 
and strengthened it, and the one now in uso has been thoroughly tested, and* is found to give 
great satisfaction. Mr. Thomson is taking out a patent for the machiije, simply to prevent 
badly-made and imperfect apparatus getting into the market, and giving his mill a bad name. 
1 would strongly advise you to get two mills, one with two rollers and one with three, for the 
Panjib, and get Mr. Thomson to send a native with them who knows how to work them. 

If my calculation is correct, the saving of labor is enormous, for one bullock does the work 
of two in one-foarth the time, and it is the saving of time, strange to say, which the natives 
seem to appreciate, for th^y say it enables them to get th^ sugar-cane off the ground quickly. 

There is one point I have not mentioned, namely^ that the juice is very much, better than> 
when extracted by the native mills, being perf eerly clean. Taking it altogether, it is one of the 
most useful implements ever introduced into this country, tvnd the only piece of English machi- 
nery I have ever seen the natives thoroughly tq-kp to. I saw the machine at work in March last 
and I took time to consider the matter before advising you to get a couple of the mills for the 
Panj&b, for, as a rule, in this country English machinery, after a few trials, is put aside to rust^ 
because it is not suitable, or is too expensive for the native cultivator to use. I should mention 
t^t the native cultivators hire out the mills, at so much a day I suppose. The mills are madft 
^d sold by some Firm in Calcutta,

To 

ALL COSfMISSIONERS AItt) ©EPtlTT COMMISSIONERS PANJAR 

The remarks oontained in para 109 of tho Financial CdmniaBioner^s Annual 
t>^ i*r s- ^ Report for 1872^75 rejuirding the penalties and tnei 

rt^du^ for eradihg^ leviable under Sections 20 and 29 of the General Stamp 
Act XVIII of 1869 by Ciril and Grlminal Courts respec- 
tively on account of unstamped or inHufficiently stamped docnment» produced or 
•ihiblted in a Civil Court, baviofc been i»eferred to the Government of Indis^ ss 
intimated in para 9 of the PanjSb Govenmient Review of the Report, the annexed 
copy of the letter received in reply. No. 2004 dated Slst March 1874, ftom the 
Under-Secretary to the Government of India^. iu the Financial Department, is ciicii> 
lated for general information and guidance. 

2. The opinion of the Financial Commissioner, as expressed in the above-men- 
tioned para of the report ( copy of which is appended for facility of reference ), wa 
based upon the supposition that an instrument executed on unstamped or in^ 
Bufficiently stamped paper, with the intention of evading payment of^e reqnoeJ 
stamp du^y, when impounded by a Civil Court under Section 22, with a view to the 
institution by the Collector of a prosecution under that Section, would be adfinssi- 
ble in evidence by such Court in event of and in virtue of a fine being levied oa 
account of such document under Section 29. The accompanying rulixig of tbr 
Government of India shows that such is not the eassw 

3. No document ^'s admissible in evidence ( except in Criminal cases ) unless 
it be sufficiently stamped, either originally or subsequent^jr ta exeoution, under 
Section 20, Section 24, Sec.Mon 26, or Section 39. 

4. The appropriate cnr^ for any hardship arising from an excessive penary 
being demanded by Section 20 is that Civil Courts should^ before exacting the 
penalty, always inform suitors th.'it the Financial Commissioner has the power to 
remit it, in whole or in part, and should themselves support the suitors' petition 
for refund in cases where they think a relbnd may be properly made. 

5. A document impounded itndeT SdOtioa 22 is not rendered admissible in 
evidence by virtue of payment of the pe laxity imposed on the oflfender upoa convie- 
tion under Section 29, but such a docum.'int may become admissible if a certificate 
be duly endorsed upon it under Section 2(J or 24 subsequent to its impoundment, 
and such a certificate may be granted when the person tried is honorably acquitted* 

yb. 2004 dated 3lit March lB7i, from Und&r L^^oretary to Gov&mment ^JnOiB^ 
IHnaneial Department^ to Secretary ta Oovemment Patjdb, 

I am directed to acknowledge the receipt of yonr letter dated 9th February 1874, No. IW, 
and in reply to observe that there is apparently some Lnisaporehension in regard to the provi- 
sions of Sections 20 and 22 of the General Stamp Act XVm of 1869. 

2. The two Sections deal with two distinct classes of traiisactions : — 

l#t.--The fine which a Civil or a Revenue Court requires bi^iore admitting an instnunMit, 
which has been, by negligence, not sufficiently stamped at the time of execution. This i» a 
purely Civil transaction ; the holder of the instrument need not pay the fine at all unless ke 
likes, and he very often does not pay but elects i to withdraw the int trument. *" 

2nd. The Criminal penalty which a Magistrate inflicts on a pei son who has defrauded or 
tried to defraud the revenue. This is a penalty which must be paid w Ithout option, and in such 
a case the holder of the unstamped or insufficiently stamped document would not be allow^ 
the option of withdrawing the docnmant or pajying a penalty.

109> The powers conferred on Civil Conrta by Section 20 of the General Stamp Act 
wnanne to be freely used. The amonnt of deficient dntj realised was Rs. 898, and the amount 
« penalties Rg. 4,992. As this is about thirteen times the amount of the deficient duty, the 
penalty must, in the majority of cases, have been for documents produced more than a jear 
MCT execution, and this is the natural result, as disputes do not usually arise on documents 
within a-year. The lower penalty of five times the deficient duty for documents produced withia 
» yearcanseldOTabe imposed- The penalty of twenty times the deficiency is imperative fat- 
au cas^ where the document is produced after a year. ITnder Section 20 a document can only 
pe admitted if the Court is satisfied that the omission to stamp it did not arise out of any 
intention to eyadepayment of the proper duty. If such intention is suspected, the Court may 
impound tl^instroment under Section 22. and the Collector must prosecute under Section 29, 
which pr^cribes a penalty not exceeding Rs. 100, or ten times the value of the proper stamp, 
or irf the defiaency. This leads to the anomaly that an evader of the Stamp Law gets off mor^ 
easily m the Criromal Court than before a Civil Court or Revenue Officer, not only because the 
pceacribedpenaHy Blower for aH documents requiring less than Rs. 100 stamp, but also 
because the Unminal Court is allowed a discretion which is not accorded to the Civil or Re- 
Tenue Court, the fine in the former case being not exceeding certain limits, that is, it may be 
less, while m the other it must be twenty times- the deficiency. It is always difficult to prove a 
fraudulent intent. But to adopt the easier course and admit the plea of ignorance causes the 
imposition of a heavier penalty on the evader than if he had pleaded a fraudulent intent. This 
•tatc of things is often very hard on ignorant people. The only remedy at present is apparen- 
ttj an appeal to the Financial CommiiBsiouOT under Section 42 for reduction of penalty. The 
heavy penalty, moreover, tempts suitors in Civil Courts'to keep back written documents and 
put forward other and less reliable evidence. A discretionary power to regulate the penalty ac- 
oordmg to the circumstancee of the case would have sufficient effect in discouraging evasions^ 
of stamp duty without pr3ducing the injurious effecte above diescribed.

The Honorable the Lieutenant Governor kaa approved a proftosal made by the 
Education of P twiris. Financial Commissioner for the establishment of a school 
for the instruction of Patwfefe and candidates for the 
post of Patw&rf in every district in the Panjdb. The cost of eaeb school is not 
t» exceed Rs. 400 per annum, and is to be defrayed, as far a9 possible, from the 
^AponA Office fund, and the fines levied from PatwdHs. In cascsr when these funds 
mai% not oatBcient to cover the whole expense, His Honor will be prepared to make 
good the 4eiieieacy hy a grant from the Educational assignment 

3. The Fina^etal Commissioner desires that steps may be taken, with as 
little delay as possible, to establish these schools. Commissioners are therefore 
requested to favor him with an early report as to how far the above-mentioned funds 
are available in ef^sh of the districts in their Divisions to meet the proposed outlay. 

3u The sanctioned amount of expenditure will, Mr. Egerton believes, be gen- 
arallj amply sufficient tp provide the necessary establishment, as follows:-—

^flficers or used bond-fide for GovennneBft purposes, «nd not to Government property 

leased to private individuals or contractors. 

3. It has now been ruled by ihe ^Government of India that no local cesses 
shall be levied on the proceeds of lands included in reserved State forests. 

In future, therefore, while the exemption as regaixls Government lands admi- 
nistered in tlie Revenue Department, which are in the actual possession of Govem- 
■meitt Ofl&cers- or used bondrfide for tJovemment purposes, will continue in force, no 
locflil cesses can he demanded on accotint o^ lands reserved and placed under control 
•of the IForest Departmecft, whether held under direct management by that Depart- 
ment, or leased to private individuals or contractors. 

4. These orders are not to have retrospective effect, and no collections of 
local <se8ses hitherto made on account of lands under the management of the Forest 
Department will be refunded. 

5. The only Government lands on account of which a demand for local cesses 
can be made in future, are therefore, those which are under the control of District 
Officers, which are leased to private individuals or contractors.

^ the land, is forwarded with a 

request that this distribution may be effected in all such Settlements, and the result 

shown in a tabular form. 

2. The object of these ordei*s is to obtain, at the time when a Settlement in 
made, the annual value of irrigation, for which owner s rate is not charged, in land 
irrigated from canals and tanks. 

3. In the case of the Inundation Canals of the Montgomery District, tho 
lands irrigated are assessed annually, and so the revenue is chissified as fluctuating. 
lu other places the revenue will be assessed at Settlement, and will be fixed in these 
cases also. The Financial Commissioner wishes for a return of the amount ot the 
fixed assessment which may bo considered due to irrigation; this will appear under 
the third heading, and the term " fluctuating" used in the Cixse of the Inundation 
Canals of Montgomery may be disregarded. 

4. The estimate is required for statistical purposes, and not for accounts. It 
is important to know what the annual value of the irrigation in any tract is, in 
order that the probable value of new works of irrigation in the neighbourhood may 
be estimated, or the propriety of making an outlay upon improvements in existing 
means of irrigation may be considered. 

5. In reporting on this subject it will be convenient if the amount ordinarily 
assessable upon a well in each assessment circle is stated, together with the area 
ordinarily irrigated from a well in one year and the rate per acre due to irrigation 
in lands watered by canals.

2. His Excellency the (iovenior-txcricral in Council has had the advanta^fc of considering: 
these papers in communication with .Mr. KL^crlon, Financial Commissioner, of the Panjab, and 
has given his best attention to tho imoortait points involved in the corre-^pondence. 

3. In regard to the qucsticm of croditiu;^ the assessment derived from land irrigated by- 
canals to the Irrigation Department, tlie (lovernor-Ciencral in Council is of opinion thar. to 
allow this would causo grave inconveni-M -e. His Excdloicy considers that the object in ic.v 
will be fully attained by havin-^ thn^e s.ibh.>a U unl t tiu/ general head of Laud Revenue.

98 FINANCIAL CIRCULAR ORDERS. [ BltoOBD 

6. These orders, I am to observe, refer only to the district ander consideration, and are 
not to be held to apply, without specific instructions to that eflEect, to other districts. 

Copy of a letter No. 49 M dated Ibth July 1874,/ro//i Offg. Secretary to Financial CommisHoner, 

Panjdhf to Secretary to Government Panjdh. 

With reference to the orders contained in Goyemment of India letter No. 803 dated 29th 
fleptember 1873, Agriculture, Revenue, and Commerce Department, forwarded with your letter 
No. 1491 dated 10th October 1873, directing that in the case of the lands irrigated from canals 
in Dipalpiir, P^pattan, and parganahs of the Montgomery District the Land Revenue shall be 
dinded into three sub-heads, showing — 

1. The bdr&ni assessment, or the rate which would be leviable on unirrigated land. 

2. The fixed assessment on land irrigated by wells. 

3. The fluctuating revenue derived from lands irrigated by canals. 

2. The Financial Commissioner wishes to enquire with respect to other cases where lands 
are supplied with water from works of irrigation maintained by the people themselves (as in 
Bannii, Peshawar, and Derah Ismail Kh4n), or by the Canal Department (as in the case of the 
tanks and bands of GurgAon and Rohtak), to which the rules for canal water-rates may not be 
applicable, and no owners' rates leviable, whether the Settlement Officer should be directed ta 
estimate the amount of Land Revenue, fixed or fluctuating, which may be properly credited 
to the irrigation works. 

3. It appears to Mr. Egerton that, for statistical purposes, it is desirable that some trust- 
worthy estimate of the amount of Land Revenue which is due to such works should be framed, 
and that the principle laid down in the orders above quoted may with advantage be made gene- 
rally applicable to all works of irrigation, other than wells, to which the rule for canal irriga- 
tion rates do not apply.

CIRCULAR No. 39 of 1874. 
(No. 6681). 

Dated 28tk September 187 i. 
To 

ALL COMMISSIONERS, DEPUTY COMMISSIONERS, SETTLEMENT 

COMMISSIONERS, AND SETTLEMENT OFFICERS, PAN JAB. 
In Districts where Settlements are in progress, questions have from time to 
Performance of certain operations in ^^^^^ a^'seu, with respect to certain admiuis- 
Districts under Settlement. trative operations, whether thej should be per- 

formed by District or Settlement Officers. 

2. These operations consist of — 

A. The appoiutuieut, duties, payment, and removal of village headmen, 

Pat war is, and Qanuugos. 

B. Minor Settlements, e, g., Settlements of lapsed Bevenue-£ree holdings, 

alluvial lauds. Government waste. 

C. Mutations, partitions (complete and incomplete). 

D. Distribution of the Government demand previous to collection (the 

" bach"). 

E. Preparation of schedules of land required for public purposes under the 

Laud Acquisition Act (X of 1870). 

F. Preparation of miscellaueous returns. 

3. A. Tlio control of the Settlement Officer, as regards village headmen, 
Patwaris, and Qanungos, is secured by the Rules under the Paujab Land Kevenae 
Act (A I 3, 8, 12, 17, 18, 11, 14, HI, 7). 

4. B. Miuor Settlements under Section 41 of the Act are to be made by 
ihe Settlemeut Officer, aud not by the Deputy Commissi nier in districts where a 
^Settlement is in progress (Rule D; IV; 41). The presci b;d Statements should be

furnished by the Settlement Officer to the Deputy Commissioner, that the District 
records may be complete. 

5. C. As regards mutations, the rules under the Act do not prescribe by 
whom they are to be effected during currency of Settlement operations. Moreover, 
these rules which are framed under Sections 39 and 40 of the Act, apply to the 
interval from the time when a record of rights has been handed over to the Deputy 
Commissioner until the District is again placed under Settlement ; and the rules 
are therefore not legally binding during the progress of Settlement operations. 
It is, however, certain that the Settlement Officer, after publication of a notification 
of Settlement (Section 11), has power to hold all proceedings necessary to the 
formation of a record of rights, a« described in Section 14 ; and the mutation of 
names in proprietary or cultivating tenures is a proceeding of this nature. It must 
therefore be understood that Sjttlement Officers may, during the progress of Settle- 
ment operations, perform all the functions ordinarily exercised by Deputy Commis- 
sioners in regard to ^mutations, which are described in Rules E, I ; and except in 
regard to those provisions therein contained, which are manifestly inapplicable to tha 
period of Settlement operations, or which have been superseded by other definite 
instructions, these rules are to be observed by Settlement Officers. 

The rules for complete partition, E, III, are specially framed with reference 
to Settlement operations, and the case in which District Officers may hold proceed- 
ings under them is treated as exceptional (Rule 28). No question therefore cau 
arise as to the powers of Settlement Officers on this subject. 

With regard to incomplete partition, the case is different. There is no pro- 
vision in the Rules (E, II) for proceedings being held by Settlenjent Officers, nor 
can the operation of incomplete partition be said to be one which is necessary for 
the aecurate formation of a record of rights. The Financial Commissioner contem- 
plates recommending an addition to the rules empowering Settlement Officers to 
hold proceedings under this Chapter ; meanwhile such proceedings must under the 
rules be held in all cases by the District authorities. 

6. D. The preparation of the "bach," or distribution of the Government 
demand among the co-parceners, has hitherto been performed by the Patwarls 
under orders of the Deputy Commissioner, and where Settlements are in progress, 
they have been made over to the Deputy Commissioner for this purpose. This pro- 
cedure causes considerable delay and inconvenience, and the progress of a Settle- 
ment would be much less delayed if the papers were prepared under orders of the 
Settlement Officer without transfer and retransfer of the Patwdrfs. 

7. The same remark applies to the duties falling under headings E and F. 

These are all administrative operations, for which no express procedure is pre- 
scribed by law, and no exception can be taken to their being performed by the 
agency of the Settlement Officers, who would in each case forward the papers, when 
complete, to the Deputy Commissioner. 

8. In regard, however to the three last headings D. E. and F. the Financial 
Commissioner is unwilling to issue definite instructions until he has ascertained 
whether any serious objection ii held to exist against their being performed by the 
agency of Settlement Officers, either on the part of the District or Settlement au- 
thorities. In some Districts the arrangement has been made with good results ; but 
although there is a probability of the system working well in all Districts under 
Settlement, the Financial Commissioner wishes to give an opportunity, both to 
District and Settlement Officers, of expressing an opinion on the subject. The op- 

' nions should be submitted within three months from this date through Commis- 
sionerSy whose opinion is similarly invited. At the expiration of that period, d©« 
finito orders will be issued.

CIRCULAR No. 40 of 1874. 



Dated SSlk Srptemher 1874. 



ALL COMMT?;srONERS, DEPUTY rOMMI^^SIONERS, SETTLEMENT 
COMMISSIONER, AND SETTLEMENT OFFICERS, PANJAB. 
Some difficulty has been experienced as to the best raoilc of securing the atten- 
Attendance of Lambar- dance of proprietors and cultivators of land before the 
dars and Zamindais for at- subordinate otticers employed in Settlement operations, 
testing incasurenionts. fQj. ^\^q puipose of obtaininj^ their attestation to measure- 

ments, and other processes. Tliere is no ditliculty in the case of Lambardare, as 
Rule 17 of the Rules issued under Act XXXIII of 1871, regarding Lambardars, 
provides for their attendance. 

2. The following opinion of the Government Advocate on the subject, in which 
the Financial Commissioner concurs, is oirculated for the inform.ition and guidance 
of all officers concerned. 

Extract from opinion of the Government Advocate^ Panjah, on the subjeH of powers of Settle' 

ment Officers, dated ^rd April 1871. 

" As to Zamlndars, the ditliculty Biifjecstod is that Section 24 only empowers Settlement 
Officers to compel attendance boTure themselves, ami not i»et\)re their subordinates. 

39. It seems to me, however, clear that, taking S^«<;tiuus IV and 2.\ together, all Settle- 
ment Officers can compel the atteadanee of all persons who^e attendauee is requisite before 
subordinate officials as well as before theniHelves. 

40. Who then are *• Settlement O.H/ers"? I understand that t«rm to include all of tiie 
officers by whom a Settlement is to be made, that the Local Government has thought fit to 
mention in the Settlement notification under Scotiou 11. The term as there used is clearly 
meant to include officers subordinate to the othcer in charffc of the Settlement. It may there- 
fore include all such officers, at least down to the prrade of Superintendent, the test in each in- 
Btance being whether a given officer has been mentioned in the notifi-ation of Settlement, (It 
does not, I think, include offi^'ers whose fanotion^ are i).irely minist jriU, su'^h a^j Fatw4rls, &c^ 
or Peons. These are rather serva'its than otU^er^). S^<:ce^sorrt and re:)r.N.'ritative8 of such aa 
officer under Section 13 are, of course, in the same position as the ori;;iiial offic^er. 

41. It is compv?tent then, in my opinion, to every Settlement O.H er wiio has been men- 
tioned in the notification of Settlement, and his successor or representative, when a local in?e8- 
tigation seems to him necessary for the puri)ose of takin;^ or att<'sting measiu'ements, to issue 
a commission to a PatwAri or Am(n under section 180 of A<-t VIII of 1,^.5!). The Patwari or 
Amin will then have the powers of a Commissioner under ScHion 180, that is to say, among 
others, the power to require to attend beft^re him persons whose evidence he considers necessary 
to the matter in hand. Persons not attending upon such reeiuisition are liable to the like 
penalties by the "Order of the Settlement Officer issuing the commission upon report by the 
Commissioner, as persons would be who fail to comply with a summons issued to them by the 
Settlement Officer to attend and give evidence, or produce a document before himself (Sec- 
tions 180 and 1C8 of Act VIII of I8r>9). 

42. For the purpose of subjecting recusant persons to penalties for their rectisancy, • 
requisition is equivalent to a summons. 

43. As to the form of the requisition, it need not be in writina:. bat it obviously is expedi- 
ent that it should Ix; ; a separate requisition need not be issued to each person, one requisition 
might be addressed to all the persons whoso attendance is required at one time and place* 
specifying that time and place and the persons before whom they are to attend. 

44. Service could be matle by exhibiting the original notice and communicating its contents* 

45. It is advisable that the person serving the requisiticm should take some acknowledsr- 
ment of service, and should record the time and place of service on each person named, so that 
evidence might be forthcoming if an enquiry had to be held into the causes of non-attendance 

46. Service might be effected either through Lambardars or through Peons specially 
retained, but, as to costs of service, there is no legal authority for making any charge. 

• 47. In regard to the phrase in Section 24, *• all matters into which Settlement Officen 
are empowered to enquire under the notification mentioned in Section 11," I think this clearly 
refers to clause 3 and clause 4 of that Section, as Section 11 doe.^ not appear to contemplate a 
detailed statement of the matters into which Settlement Officers shall enquire. 

48. What these matters are must depend in each case upon tiie kind of Settlement to be 
made, that being ascertained by reference to the notification of Settlement. I think there can 
be no doubt that Settlement Officers, as it is their duty to make a Settlement of that kind, 
have power to enquire into all matters necessary to be ascertained for the purpose of making 
it, and therefore have power under Section 24 to compel fttt^udance of aU persoiifi likely to 
throw liglit on way each nmttcr, __ _ ,

MEMO. No. 6830, 

Dated 1st October 1874. 
To 

COMMISSIONERS DEHLI, HISSAR, AMBALAH, AMRITSAR, 

MULTAN, AND DERAJAT DIVISIONS. 

The experiments made last year for testing the value of Poudrette as a 
Poudrette, Experiments manure have been reported to Government, and the 
for testing the value of— Financial Commissioner has been instructed to select die- 
as a manure. tricts for future experiments with reference to the oppor- 

tunities possessed by Local Officers for conducting them with care. It has also 
been suggested by Government that the experiments should be made on canal- 
inigated lands if possible. 

The districts marginally noted have accordingly been selected for experiments 
-. ... during the current year, and I am to request the 

Karnil. attention of the Deputy Commissioners of these districts 

HissAr. to the following remarks by the Financial Commis- 

Ambilah. sioner 

Ludidnah. 

Amritsar. 2. It is of the greatest importance to restore to the 

Molten. lands the substances which support vegetable life, and 

Derah Ismail KhAn. constitute its productive power, when they become ex* 

baiisted by means of heavy cropping and canal irrigation. When this can be done 

by means of a substance which is otherwise wasted, the benefit is an unmixed one. 

3. The successful use of Poudrette is therefore a subject, the determination 
of which will be of the greatest value ; aud the experiment should be prosecuted 
with patience. The result of the use of tiie manure is not in any dngree doubtful; 
if the prejudice against it can be overcome, its effects are sure to be appreciated. 

4. The Financial Commissioner therefore hopes that the subject will receive 
the careful attention of the officers above mentioned during the current year. A. 
report should be made on the experiments in due course.

6. As a rule, all legal questions of any difficulty or importance which Com- 
missioners and Deputy ComoiisHioners may have to refer, should, as at present, be 
submitted to this office, and the opinion of the Government Advocate will be 
obtained in direct communication with him. 



Rules for the Conduct op Suits in thb Panjab to which Government is a 

PARTY. 

I. The Financial Commissioner has general charge of all cases to which the 
Government is a party, or which are brought or defended by public officers at the 
public expense, in all civil courts in the Panjab. He is entitled to call for explana- 
tions, reports, <fec., from all officers of Government in coinieotion with Government 
suits. He exercises generally the powers exercised in other provinces by the Board 
of Revenue and thfe Legal Remembrancer. 

II. When {k suit is brought against Government or a public officer for official 
acts, or when it is proposed that a suit sliall be brought by, or on behalf of. Govern- 
ment, the officer immediately concerned will furnish a report stating fully the facts 
of the case, and, as far as his knowledge will enable him to do so, the law applica- 
ble to it. In this report he should meet, as far as he is able, the arguments likely 
to be adopted by the opposite party. 

III. When the subject of the suit is connected with district administration, 
and belongs to no other special department, this report wiH be furnished by the Deputy 
Commissioner to the Financial Coinmissiouer direct. When other departments are 
concerned, the report will be furnished by the local executive officer to his immediate 
superior, and the head of the department will refer it to the Financial Commissioner, 
who will issue the requisite instructions. Thus, a claim for land would be forwarded 
by the Deputy Commissioner to the Financial Commissioner ; a claim for forest 
timber would be forwarded by the Assistant or Deputy Conservator of Forests and 
Conservator to Financial Commissioner ; a claim connected with canals would be 
forwarded by Canal Officer to Chief Engineer, Irrigation Branch ; local fund cases 
would be forwarded by Deputy Commissioner to Financial Commissioner ; treasury 
cases by Deputy Commissioner to Financial Commissioner ; police cases by District 
Superintendent, Deputy Inspector-General, to Inspector-General j and similarly with 
the various departments of Government. 

IV. In each case the departmental authorities will be responsible for a full and 
correct representation of the facts of the case. All controlling authorities through 
whose hands the papers pass will be expected to give them due attention, and not 
forward them to Financial Commissioner without a full and clear expression of 
their opinion, and the arguments on which that opinion is based. 

Suits by Government. 

V. When it shall appear to the Deputy Commissioner or other local authori- 
ty concerned thf\t a suit should be brought by Government or by a public officer 
at Government expense against any person, he will prepare a report as prescribed 
above, and submit it in tlie case of Deputy Commissioners direct, and in the case of 
other officers through their departmental superiors for the orders of the Financial 
Commissioner. No suit can be brought without such sanction. The report 
must be accompanied by a draft plaint, or a statement of the points that shoiild be 
entered in the plaint, together with the originals or copies of any documents on 
which the claim may be based, or which may serve to elucidate the case. The re- 
port should also suggest the person who might suitably be appointed to conduct the 
suit on behalf of Government, and where persons other than Government servants 
are employed, the amount of remuneration should also be suggested. 

VI. The Financial Commissioner will convey instnictions through the depart- 
ment concerned. In such cases as he may think proper, the Fiuaucial Commissioner

Dece. ISn, ] FINAJfcTCIAL CIRCULAR ORDERS. lOU 

will direct that intermediate reports of the progress of the suit be submitted to him, 
together with copies of any documents he may call for, — in imimportant cases this 
will not be necessary, — and a report of the final result submitted through the usual 
channels will be sufficient. 

VII. In all cases where the officer conducting the suit on belialf of Govern- 
ment is in doubt on any point, he should, if the matter is urgent, refer direct to 
Financial Commissioner or to the Government Advocate for instructions, moving 
the court for a postponement of the case for that purpose. 

Suits Against Government. 

VIII. When in any civil court a suit is lodged against a public officer oi^ 
account of official acts, and the summons has been served under Section 68 of Act 
VIII of 1859 on the Deputy Commissioner or other executive officer named as 
defendant, he should transmit through the proper official channel (Rule III) a copy of 
the plaint, and, if in vernacular, a translation of the same on half margin, with a clear 
and full report, as prescribed in Rule 11, of the circumstances of the case. If the 
suit be one which he considers should be defended at the public expense, he should 
submit also a draft answer to the plaint and originals or copies of any documents 
relied on as evidence, or that may seem to elucidate the case. The draft answer or 
-written statement here prescribed should be of the character contemplated in Sections 
120 to 123 of the Civil Procedure Code (Act VIII of 1859). He should also, as iu 
cases prescribed for in Rule V, suggest the name of the pleader or other officer who 
might in his opinion be suitably appointed to conduct the case. On receipt of the 
report and its accompaniments, the Financial Commissioner will issue the necessary 
instructions. In cases where the suit is against a public officer for acts for which he 
ia in law personally answerable, it will rest with the Local Government todeteimine, 
according to the circumstances of each case, whether the suit shall be defended at the 
public expense. Accordingly, the officers through whom the report is transmitted 
should be careful to state their opinions on this point. 

IX. Rules VI and VII are equally applicable to this section. Sections 67 
to 72 of Act VIII of 1859 must be read in connection with this section on the un> 
derstanding that in suits where the Government or the Secretary of State for India 
in Council is named as defendant, the summons should be served on the Deputy Com- 
missioner of the district in which the suit is instituted, who will transmit it to the 
Government Advocate. The Deputy Commissioner will also prepare and forward 
to the Government Advocate at the same time a copy of the plaint, accompanied, if 
in vernacular, by a translation. This will enable the Financial Commissioner and 
the Government Advocate to take action at once, if necessary, before the official re- 
port is sent up by the department concerned. 

X. On receipt of the summons from the Civil Court, the officer on whom the 
summons is served, or the officer appointed to act for Government shall, with as 
little delay as possible, apply under Section 67 or 69, Civil Procedure Code, to the 
court in which the case is pending, for a reasonable adjournment, if the time fixed 
in the summons is insufficient to enable him to communicate with Government, and 
if on the date fixed for Government to answer to the plaint, or on the adjourned 
date, the instructions of Government have not been received, the officer above 
mentioned shall apply to the court under Section 67 or 69 for further adjournment. 

Appbals by Government. 

XI. When a case shall have been decided in any civil court against Govern- 
ment or a public officer as aforesaid, and tlie officer who conducted it shall be of 
opinion that an appeal should be prefen*ed, he will prepare a report on the subject, 
showing the grounds on which an appeal is considered necessary, together with copy 
in English of the judgment passed, and a draft memorandum of appeal in English 
on Jialf margin. When the officer who conducted the suit did so on behalf of some 
other officer or department, ^ he will prepare these papers iu commuuicatiou with

that officer or department. These will bo forwar<lcd through the usual channels 
(Rule III) to Fiuancial Commissioner, who will decide whether an appeal is to be pre- 
ferred or not. The departmental authorities are responsible that these papers are 
submitted to Financial Commissioner in ample time to allow of an appeal being lodged 
within the prescribed limit The same officer who conducted the original suit will, 
as a rule, conduct the appeal. 

XII. Rules VI and VII are equally applicable to this section. 

Appeals by opposite pabtt. 

XIII. When an appeal is preferred against an order in favor of Government, 
and the usual notice has been issued by the appellate court to the officer who con- 
ducted the original suit on behalf of Government, or to the officer immediately con- 
cerned, he will submit a report in the same way and through the same channels 
(Rule III) as in the original suit, with a copy of the judgment, and a copy of the peti- 
tion of appeal, and a draft of the reply he proposes to submit to the appellate court 
The Financial Commissioner on receipt of the papers will issue instructions. 

XIV. Rules VI and VII are equally applicable to this section. 

Copy op final judgment. 

XV. At the termination of eveiy original suit or appeal to which Govern- 
ment is a party, a copy of the final judgment of the court shall be procured and 
transmitted without delay by the officer who has conducted the case on behalf of 
Government, accompanied by such remarks as he may consider necessary, direct to 
the office of the Government Advocate. 

Accounts. 

XVI. When sanction has been given to institute a suit on behalf of Govern- 
ment, the Deputy Commissioner will provide the necessary funds for stamps and 
other expenses in the same way as he provides for his ordinary contingencies, pro- 
vided the amount does not exceed 500 rupees for the whole costs of an original suit 
Where the expense is likely, on the whole, to be above 600 rupees, this should be 
stated in the first report of the case that is sent up, and sanction to the expendi- 
ture will be conveyed by Financial Commissioner at the same time that sanction is 
given to institute the suit. 

XVII. Further items that may arise will be dealt with in the same way. All 
expenditure in excess of Rs. 500 in one suit will be referred to Financial Commis- 
sioner for sanction. 

XVIII. All such items, whether sanctioned separately or included in contingent 
bills, will be denoted as on account of "Law Charges " of the department conceiiied. 

XIX. All recoveries made by realization of costs except pleaders' fees, which 
are under separate rules, will be credited distinctly as " Law Charges *' recovered 
subordinate to the head XVIII "Miscellaneous." Recoveries of the principal sums 
sued for will be credited to their appropriate heads, that is to the department con- 
cerned, except any interest that may be decreed in favor of Government ; this will 
be shown under the head "Miscellaneous" subordinate to XVII "Interest." 

XX. In urgent cases where money may have been advanced from other 
sources the earliest opportunity should be taken for adjusting them in the manner 
here indicated. 

XXI. When it is necessary to employ pleaders and other agents not connected 
with Government, special arrangements must be made in each case under sanction 
of Financial Commissioner (see also Rule V). When a decree is given against 
Government, and there is no appeal from the order, or no intention of appealing, 
application should be made by the officer who conducted the case on behalf of Go- 
vernment to the Financial Commissioner, who is authorized to sanction the dis- 
bursement, whether there be budget provision or not. In coimection with this 
Kule see also Section 201 of Act VIII of 1859.

Funds will be supplied and accounts will be kept by the Deputy Commissioner 
of'tb« district in which the suit is instituted, whatever department be concerned. 
Where departments other than the Revenue Department are concerned, the Deputy 
Commissioner will debit the charges and credit the receipts to that department, in- 
timating the same in due ooiirse to the officer concerned. 

Returns. 
XXIL The statistics of Government litigation will be compiled in an annual 
statement in Financial Commissioner's office. The materials for this will be fur- 
nished by Deputy Commissioners in annual statements, to be rendered at the same 
time as the annual revenue reports. Information connected with the suits of other 
departments will be incorporated in Deputy Commissioner's statements, and the 
officer concerned will furnish them to Deputy Commissioners accordingly. 

XXIII. The retui-ns rendered by Deputy Commissioners will be the following, 
ibnus of which are appended : — 

1. Statement of civil suits to which Government was a party, showing names 

of litigants, cause of action, and result of suit, original and appeal. 

2. Detailed statement of outstanding decrees passed in favor of Government 
during the year, showing realizations and outstandings. 

Z, Detailed account showing expenditure and receipts in Government suits. 
Each suit will be shewn separately in this statement — and not merely 
the totals — both as regards receipts and disbursements. 

XXIV. Where cases have occurred in connection with the Court of Wards, 
separate statements in the same form as the above should be rendered for them. 

Miscellaneous. 

XXV. When a suit, whether original or appeal, is heard in the Chief Court 
of the Panjab, it will be under the immediate charge of the Financial Commissioner, 
and the officer appointed to conduct it, who will usually be the Government Ad- 
vocate, will be in direct communication with Financial Commissioner. 

XXVI. No public officer is permitted to grant any copies of correspondence 
between the Tarious officei-s of Government on the subject of suits without the 
previous sanction of the Financial Commissioner. 

XXVII. All appeals to the Privy Council in England in cases in which the 
Court of Wards is concerned, require the sanction of the Financial Commissioner. 
All other appeals in which the Government is concerned require the sanction of 
the Local Government, obtained through the Financial Commissioner. 

XXVIII. In the case of suits instituted by or against Government in the 
Settlement Department or on the Revenue side of the Court, the functions assign- 
ed in these rules to the Financial Commissioner will devolve on the Secretary to 
Government, Civil Department, to whom accordingly all references and communi- 
cations directed in the above rule to be made to the Financial Commissioner 
should be addressed direct. 

XXIX. These rules are applicable to cases connected with the Court of Wards. 
The procedure will be the same as in other cases. 

XXX. Where the Deputy Commissioner is called upon to prepare a report 
in a case in which he is likely to adjudicate, he is authorized to make over the pre- 
paration of the case to a competent assistant. This proviso, however, need not 
apply to the receipt of summons and the forwarding of the same to the Government 
Advocate, which may in all cases be done by the Deputy Commissioner in his re- 
Tenue capacity. 

XXXI. Officers appointed to conduct civil suits on behalf of Government, 
should inform the court of their being so appointed, and move it to enter a note to 
that effect upon the register in compliance with Section 70 of Act VIII of 1859, in 
order that pleaders' fees may be included in the costs, and any sums realized on this 
account should be remitted to the Lahore treasury.
