Q. 33.8( 6 Votes )

During the freedom movement the zamindars normally supported the British. Can you explain why?

Answer :

The zamindars supported the British as they were getting benefit from the policies of government.

When Permanent Settlement was introduced , the zamindars were given the powers to collect revenue, in which zamindars were allowed to keep 10% of the revenue. And as the revenue demand of the state would not be increased, the zamindars would benefit from the increased production.


When losses occurred i.e when zamindars were unable to pay the revenue they would loose their Zamindari. The reasons of geting profit and securing their zamindari compelled them to support the British.
