Humble sAshtAnga praNAms Sri Vyas prabhuji
Hare Krishna

Thanks a lot for your kind clarification.  

May I also ask is there any credible reference to who did the pada vibhAga of krishna Yajurveda saMhita portion and the base of shiksha & pratishakhya.  Any reference of any printed version with regard to this would be beneficial.  I have pada pATha of KYS from some Sri vaishNava publication but required details are not there.  

Your humble servant 
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
Bhaskar YR

If I remember correctly, the Rk Samhitas' pada patha was by Shakalya who was a contemporary of or slightly older than Panini.  He did the Taittiriya pada patha too and the Vajasaneyi pada patha is by Katyayana the vartiikakara.  I'm not sure about the other shakas.

Vyakarana literally means padachheda.  The formation of the pada patha was the first acheivement of the vaiyakaranas and many sutras of Panini deal the rules although in a general way.  For specific shakhas there are more specialized texts called pratishakhyas.  The vedanga shiksha (many texts by various authours) is also important for this.
