functioning and constitution of the local sabha. It mentions not only qualifications, ranging from property and education to honesty, but also disqualifications such as lunacy, and corruption. Other inscriptions also give similar information, though there are a few variations. The assembly generally met in the precincts of the temple. Interaction and cooperation among village assemblies was also known. Functions of Assemblies First of all, the assemblies collected the assessed land revenue for the government or the temple (assessment could be either joint or individual). Secondly, they levied additional tax for a particular purpose such as the construction of a water tank. Thirdly, they settled agrarian disputes such as conflicts over tenures and irrigation rights. Fourthly, they maintained records, particularly those pertaining to charities and taxes. The larger assemblies kept a small staff of paid officials, but most of the work was done on a voluntary basis in the smaller assemblies. Taila II He began his career as a feudatory of the Rashtrakuta Krishna III, but soon overthrew the Rashtrakutas by killing Karkka II. He became the master of the whole of what had been the Rashtrakuta kingdom, with the sole exception of their Gujarat provinces. With the Paramaras of Malwa, Taila II waged bitter war. He led six invasions to that kingdom, but was repulsed on all occasions by the Paramara king, Munja. When Munja attacked Chalukyan territory, Taila defeated and put him to death. Taila’s capital was Manyakheta and Kalyani began to assume importance only under Somesvara I. Satyasraya The kingdom which Satyasraya inherited from his father was fairly extensive. The Cholas were the chief enemy of Satyasraya. It was with great difficulty that Satyasraya succeeded in freeing a major part of his kingdom from the Chola army after defeating Rajendra. Vikramaditya V Satyasraya was succeeded by his nephew Vikramaditya V, who had a short and uneventful reign of six or seven years. The only notable event in the reign of Vikramaditya was perhaps the Chola invasion by Rajendra. Jayasimha II Jayasimha II tried to recover the territory lost to the Cholas during the reign of Satyasraya. The disputed succession at Vengi gave Jayasimha a chance of interfering in the affairs of that kingdom. Jayasimha supported the claim of Vijayaditya VII to the throne against that of Rajaraja.
