- Four other categories of ministers are also referred to in the epigraphs: Pradhana (head minister), Mahasandhi-vigrahika (minister of foreign affairs), Amatya (revenue minister), and Samaharta (minister of exchequer).
- Chalukyas divided the state into political divisions for the sake of administration: Vishayam, Rastram, Nadu and Grama.
