earlier volumes of the South Indian Inscriptions Series, which
contain the texts of a large number of Tamil, Telugu and Kannada
inscriptions have been long out of print and many academic
institutions of recent origin keenly feel the absence of
these very important volumes in their libraries.
It has therefore been decided to reprint those volumes and
make them available to the world of scholars.
Volume X is the seventh of this Reprint Series and will be
followed in quick succession by the subsequent ones.
wish to register my thanks to Dr. M.S. Nagaraja Rao, Director
General, Archaeological Survey of India whose abiding interest in
the promotion of epigraphical studies has enabled the
implementation of this long awaited reprint scheme.
The credit for the planning and speedy execution of the
printing work goes to Shri J.C. Gupta, Production Officer,
Archaeological Survey of India, New Delhi.
