Q. 4

How did the Industrial Revolution in England affect India's industrialisation?

Answer :

With the Industrial Revolution in England, technological advancement began which made the life of the workers easy but at the same time it led to decrease in the number of employment opportunities as only a few people were needed to operate the machines.

Around the 19th century, cotton industry developed in England which had the advanced technology in use. Because of this cotton weavers in India faced a major problem. The export market collapsed completely as British goods were more in demand.


The Indian markets were flooded with the British goods which were very cheap in price as compared to the Indian handmade goods which were expensive.
