Abstract:
During the rule of Vijayanagara Empire in general and Tuluva dynasties ruler Shri Krishnadevaraya's reign in particular, there is a new administrative pattern called Nayaka system. It was one of the main consolidating factors of the Vijayanagara Empire in the 16th century era. It is also known as Nayankara, Nayakatana and Amaranayaka system. They ruled as feudal landlords and they took control over the production in their regions through a hierarchical network. They were supposed to provide military and administrative assistance to the king, which lessen the burden of the king in the state polity. They had administrative rights inherited from the King in their segmentary state. But they were not supreme authority in their jurisdiction. King was the eternal authority. In recent days of historiography, there is a healthy academic discussion on Origin and Genesis of Nayakas. This present article is an effort to shed a light on the some aspects of Origin and Genesis of Nayankara system.
