Hi, don't know about deepchandi but here here is a quote from "Ada Chowtal on Sitar" by S. Bandyopadhyaya.
"Two split words of different meanings such as 'ada and 'chowtal' are used together to express this Tal name. The literary meaning of the word 'ada' is curved, betn, size and also the contiliver and chowtal is the name of a most common and popular Tal having four beats used only in classical son Dhruvapad. It has six equal divisions of two units each, with four beats and two khalis in it, while two metres and one khali are more in ada-chowtal. "

Hope this helps?
