Maithil Karna Kayasthak Panjik Sarvekshan (A Survey of the Panji of the Karan Kayasthas of Mithila) is a book written by Binod Bihari Verma in Maithili. It is a research study on the available ancient manuscripts in the Mithila region, called as Panjis, which are genealogical charts of Maithil Brahmin and Kayasthas castes. This study deals with the manuscripts available in respect of Karna Kayasthas.


The work is based on several manuscripts of Panjis obtained from various panjikars of Darbhanga, Bihar. The Panjis concerned deals with the genealogy of the Karna Kayasthas. The manuscript is written in Tirhuta script (Maithili script) on palm leaves and old paper called as 'Basaha' made out of indigenous material. The work deals with Mulgrams (original village homes) and the transmigration of the Karna Kayasthas to subsequent places of living. The book is important for the geographical and social study of North Bihar of the concerned period. The work also deals with personalities of eminence among the Karna Kayasthas since 12th century. Dr (Prof) Surendra Lal Das along with Panjikars and other eminent Karna kayastha members formed "Akhil Bhartiya Karn kayastha Mahasabha" to protect the original and traditional values of Panji .
