Notes and provenance
The charter records the donation of the village Brahmapūraka, with the surrounding locations mentioned in the charter supporting Shastri’s belief (actually Mirashi's) that the charter was originally from the Gondiā region of the Bhandara district. The plate is referred to as the Siwanī (Seoni) plate as this is the main town in the district, and as the original location of the inscription is not known. (Shastri, pp. 19-20)
