Why Products Have Different Names

Why Products Have Different Names

by Kottakkal Support May 11, 2021

Our customers sometimes face difficulties searching for products because of the different ways products can be spelled. For example, AVS uses Dasamula but this same product is often spelled Dasamoola. Similarly, Jeerakady is also Jirakady. To make finding products on our site easier, we have created the table below. 

Another important thing to note is AVS product names that end with a ‘M’ such as Arishtam, Bhasmam, Churnam, Ghritam, Kashayam, Kwatham, Leham, etc., also add the letter ‘h’ to the letter ‘t’.
