Kurleet Tenure

In some parts of the Mahim District a type of ground was called Kurleet which paid a "petty tribute" to Government. It consisted chiefly of high and rocky ground, which could not be cultivated with batty. One-third generally of the produce of this ground was the tax levied upon it. These lands, in course of time were merged in toka lands.
