KM 293.2 unlisted date in KM. However, second picture, in particular bottom line looks different from picture in KM, so type may be unlisted.

Dear Peter,

Thanks for the check.

The coin is 13 mm in size. KM 293.2 is for 1/4 Rupee but this coin was given to me as a Nisar...

The weight is a fit for the ΒΌ rupee, though.

Probably a 1/4 Rupee Nisar similar to this one. The word Nisar is off the flan.

Not really off flan but cut, however 50% are still visible and it seems to me that the 3 dots are present too even rubbed out; with the coin in hand adnd a good light, may be sailor could confirm that ?

Dear Saro, thanks for highlighting the area the drawing was of great help. Although i couldn't find the 3 dots but now i know where i need to look. :)

What would you say about categorising the coin D306.4.

I see that a similar coin on Zeno is well catalogued  "KM D306.4" .
KM listing is quite confusing : on South Asian Coins (2013 Indian Edition)  for Akbarabad only the half rupee weight is listed under " KM 306.1"
KM. 306.4 are nisars of Akbarnagar.
May be it exists KM updated references ? but I haven't been able to find "KM#D306.4"
I suppose that Zeno ref is the good one  ???

Dear Saro, Many thanks for the reply and the link. The Zeno reference looks good. I will try to post an extract of the KM D 306.4.
