Together, these diverse documents provide information on matters: political, social, economic and cultural, with a bearing of political history, polity, administrative practices, local functionaries, legal practices at the court of the Qazi in relation to property, role of Panchayats, madad-i mash and dharmarth grants, recipients of jagirs and state patronage, and institutional continuity and change from the Mughal to the Sikh rule in the Punjab region. With their bearing also on social relations, literacy and sectarian attitudes, these documents have been found relevant for scholarly studies in different disciplines.
