10.1. Forms of agricultural register with instructions - The forms of the nine registers included in the patwari's copy of the village note book (paragraph 398 of the Land Administration Manual), with instructions for their preparation, are given below. The note books for each village and assessment circle and for the Tehsil are kept in the Tehsil in the same form, except that they have an additional statement, No. 10. Variations in the forms of the several statements to adapt them to the special circumstances of a district Tehsil or circle, can be sanctioned by the Financial Commissioner. Statements 1 to 5 are prepared annually, but statements 6,7 and 8 are only prepared in the year of quennial attestation of the jamabandi. The field kanungo will carefully supervise and guide the patwari in preparing statements 6.7 and 8 as they are of somewhat difficult character. He will be responsible for their correctness, and they will be signed by him as well as by the patwari.

(10) The abstract note books are not intended to supersede the ordings village note books. They will help the Deputy Commissioner,to decide questions of suspensions and remissions of revenue and generally speaking,will enable him,the Sub Divisional Officer to see at a glance what villages appeal to require to have their circumstances carefully enquired into.Such further enquiries as may be necessary,should of course only be conducted after full examination of the detailed village not book in each case.
It is hoped that when the Deputy Commissioner,or any of his assistants are in camp,they will take with them the asbtract not books
of each assessment circle in which they are touring and consider the statistics of each village while marching through it. The tehsil note book of a village should not be sent for in the camp until refrence to it is found necessary.
The proper place for the Deputy Commissioner,to record remarks is the ordinary note book . As regards the entry of remarks,paragraph 407 of the Land Administration Manual should be consulted.
