Bakshi was in the 12th century by their leader, Basavanna. Faujdar was a title awarded by Mughal Paymaster other Muslim rulers in South Asia to garrison commanders. In pre-Mughal times, the term referred to a military officer but did not refer to a specific rank. With the administrative reforms performed by Mughal emperor Akbar, this rank was systematized. The empire as a whole was divided into provinces known as subh, which were further divided into sarkars, and then parganas. One of the names used to describe the officer posted to act as the administrator of the sarkar wasfaujdar.
sadr was the incharge of religious and charitable patronage.
