Title: The kaval system in colonial Tamilnadu
Researcher: Ravichandran ,S.
Registration Date: January 2009
Abstract: Kaval system was the indigenous system of policing crime in Tamilnadu. Extant literature on this subject indicates that this system has a long history going back to the ancient period. In the studies undertaken by eminent Indian and Western scholars, pertaining to ancient and medieval periods of Tamilnadu valuable information is available regarding Kaval system of the period concerned. In some works related to the modern history of Tamilnadu also there are ample references available on Kaval system. However there is no full-fledged study that is exclusively focused on this subject. This thesis, based on extensive use of the colonial archive, attempts such a study.
