75. The former names of *Seer, Derra*,
and *Maund* are to be discontinued; and
throughout all the districts, weights of the
under-written names and standard are to be
made, with the Government-stamp upon
them, and to be every where used in their
stead; and they are to be expressed in all
accounts by the names now given; and all
the old weights are to be thrown away.—
The *Seer* is to be called *Dek*; and the *Dek*
is to weigh 24 *Rupees.* The *Derra* is to
be called *Hub*; and the *Hub* is to weigh 10
*Deks.* The *Mun* (Maund) is to be called
*Uttul*; and the *Uttul* is to weigh 4 *Hubs*
or 40 *Deks.*

76. A *Derra Sheraiee* has been fixed
upon to be used in measuring lands, and in
building fortifications, &c. It is sent to
you, and you are to cause the measurement
of lands, &c. to be made by this *Derra.*
Thirty-two *Derras* are to make one *Lub*;
and the measurement of all lands is to be
expressed in *Lubs.*

77. The measure of the *Derra* is founded
upon the *Culma Teyeebee*,*
in which there
are 24 letters, and contains 24 *Nirangushts*;*
that is to say 24 *Nirangushts* make half a
*Derra Sultaunee*, and 48 *Nirangushts* make
a complete *Derra.* The measure of a *Nirangusht*
is determined as follows: 10 grains
of fine rice, weighing 6 *Tahas*, make 1
*Nirangusht Jowan*;*
7 grains of coarse rice,
weighing 6 *Tahas*, make 1 *Nirangusht*;
7 grains of wheat, weighing 4 *Tahas*,*
make 1 *Nirangusht*; 3 *Nirangushts* make 1
*Gerra*; 8 *Gerras* ½ a *Derra*; and 16
*Gerras* 1 *Derra.*
