Urgent: Need Meaning of Hindi Word "podder/poddar"


I have to write a condensed history of a prominent person in my community who died long ago. He worked in a government office in the 1930s and his job title was poddar/podder/poddaar or something similar. He used to pronounce it pod-daar.

Apart from the spelling, I need to know what such an employee's job was. I know that it had something to do with money but not exactly what it involved. It's probably a Hindi word but few people in my community know more than a smattering of Hindi.

Can anyone please help? It's urgent.

पोद्दार <=> पोतदार => tax / money collector

१. वह जो लगान या कर का रुपया जमा करके रखता हो।
२. खजानची।
३. वह जो खजाने में रुपए, रेजगी आदि परखकर थैलियों में रखने का काम करता हो

Thanks a lot. That's a big help. Can't make head or tails about the site you linked to, though.
