In Sindh, India, ? – 19ᵗʰ century, (present-day Pakistan), a unit of mass, perhaps a synonym for kharwar. This is one of several cases where it is not clear whether by “grain measure” Wilson means a unit of mass or one of capacity. The kharwar is clearly a unit of mass and is known to be subdivided into 60 kasas. We have no other information on daris, patoïs or chuntáís.
Kharár, Sindh. A grain measure, usually rated at 60 Kásas of two daris, each dari = to 7 Patoïs, and 1 Patoï = 4 Chuntáís.
