1830, the Nawab of Junagadh levied a tax called 'Chille', a wheel-tax on every cart
engaged by pilgrims. The Government of Baroda objected to this levy and the money was
refunded to the persons concerned. In 1838, 1941 and 1865, fresh attempts were made to
levy taxes, but they all ended in failure. In 1873, Junagadh State again tried to levy the
tax 'Chille' on the ground that it was for the maintenance of roads and the protection of
the pilgrims through Girnar, but the claim was rejected by the Political Agent, Kathiawar.
A fresh application was submitted by Junagadh and the Political
Agent up held the latter's view that the tax, though in reality a tax on pilgrims, was not
abolished by the Kalambandi of 1813.
