Abstract

Das hier vorgestellte Material beruht auf Exzerpten aus den Archivkatalogen der Orissa State Archives, Bhubaneswar, wo der Autor 2002 für drei Monate arbeitete. Es ging in diesem Projekt darum, Informationen über Grenzkonflikte im südlichen Orissa zu finden, besonders in den alten Distrikten Koraput und Ganjam der alten Madras Presidency, wo Grenzziehungen besonders intensiv in der Zeit zwischen 1870 und 1890 betrieben wurden. Ziel war es, die Grenzen der Zamindaries genau zu definieren und traditionelle Formen der lokalen Administration mit territorialen Begrenzungen in Übereinstimmung zu bringen. Zudem ging es darum, Distrikte und Zillahs der Britisch-Indischen administrativen Einheiten in den schlecht zugänglichen Randzonen der Eastern Ghats zu vermessen.

Translation of abstract (English)

The material presented here is an excerpt from the archival catalogues of the Orissa State Archives, Bhubaneswar, in which the author worked for three months in 2002. The aim of this research was to obtain information on border conflicts in southern Orissa, especially in the former Ganjam and Koraput districts and agencies of the Madras Presidency, where border lines were defined around 1870 to 1890 in many parts. This administrative measure was intended to define Zamindari boundaries and the exact territory alloted to certain forms of local administration under the Zamindars of the region as well as the boundaries of the districts and zillahs of British India in remote areas.
