(2)  The books should be kept  at Sadr in the Office of the District Kango who is reponsible for their sage custody and maintenance.

(3)  There should be one volume for each assessment circle,or if the assessment circle or if the assessment circle is large ,for a suitable number of villages.Blank sheets for remarks are inserted after the statistics of each villages ,The entries are made in hectares and in English numberals by the Disrict Kgo or his assistant.

At the end of the volume or volumes for an assessment circle the total figures for the whole corcielo should be entered in the same form as that prescribed for eaach estate. Quinquennial averages be given in all village note books. from the beginning of the current settlement in red ink.

(4)  To enable the columns as to cropping and the incidence of revenue in each harvest to be written up as early as possible the tehsil office kgo should send the necessary figures to the d\Sadr immediately after the filing of each jinswar. The remaining columns should be filled in  from information abtained by the tehsil office kanungo from  the statements filed by the patwaris in September. Details as to revenue should ,if necessary ,be procured from the tehsil wasil baqi navis.

(6)  The reports containing the figures sent from the tehsils in any one year should be kept in the distrixct kanungo's office till the figures for the followinmg year have been copied into the note books and should then be destroyed.

Note  As an alternative method to that prescribed in (4) to (6) above to avoid the preparation of long statements by the tehsil office kanungo,the District kanungo,agter the filling of the zaid rabi jinswar,may either himself take the abstract note-books to each tehsil in turn and there enter up the jinswar and other figures for the whole year with the help of the tehsil office kanungo and return the books to sadr,or may depute one of his assistants to visit the tehsils for this purpose.

(7)  The village inspection of the settlement officer should be written in or copied into the abstract not books .Assessment statement and a small scale map of each villge amy also be added if thought advisable .

assessment circle,arranged in the order of their topographical numbers as follows:-

NO.(Topographical)          Name of Village           Page

(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.
