Mauza: As per Siddiqi, "The primary unit of land revenuw administration in the first half the eighteenth century was the mauza or a village."
In the Mughal Empire, the common people called a village goan or deh or pind. Hence, the word mauza was used in revenue records. In revenue records a mauza covered a specific 'arable land, abadi, pools, grooves grooves, nullahs, forests and waste land.(As per the contents of Dastur-ul-Amal-Alamgiri quoted in Land Revenue Administration Under the Mughals by N. M. Siddiqi)
