Hindi term or phrase: Porvals
"The trader community of Kathiawad was divided in nine casts like Tenners (Dasa). Twentiers (Visa) Modh, Sorathias, Porvals, Osvals, Sonis (Jewellers)etc."

Does this cast have some meaning in English? Please help in translation. If someone can put it in Russian it is better. But English is also good. Thank you for your attention.
