One of the most popular synastric systems in Jyotish is Kuta system. It represents the «system of
criteria for compatibility of partners», which was first described in ancient Jyotish classical text "Prashna Marga". There are plenty variations of this system, in some states of India it's called «Purottama», sometimes also the term "Ānukūlya" is used (sanskrit word for «auspicious matrimony»). But the most classical variation of this system is so-called Ashtakuta - compatibility of man and woman, based on 8 (Ashta) criteria (Kuta), which, probably, is the most popular among vedic astrologers.
Ashtakuta's list of criteria contains Nādī-, Rāshi-, Gana-, Grahamaitri, Yoni-, Dina-, Vashya- and Varna Kutas (detailed description of each Kuta You will get after generation of Ashtakuta with help of functionality that You will find above). These Kutas are obligatory when the compatibility of any man and woman partnership is analyzed, because they give an overall compatibility level in relationship in points. There are also other Kutas considered obligatory (for example,
Mahendra, Stree-Dirgha, Rajju, Vedha etc), but usually they are not used for calculating overall compatibility rate from Ashtakuta's 8 criteria, but are definitely necessary for getting final conclusion in compatibility analysis. For even more detailed synastric analysis in addition to criteria mentioned above lots of other more specific parameters exist, for example:
