To what extent the British policies in colonial India transformed the agrarian structure of the time? Elucidate. 10 marks

Mentor’s comment-

  • Write in a few introductory lines that there was a tremendous impact on agrarian system of the country.
  • Question is straightforward and one has to detail upon the various agrarian changes that British brought into the country – Britishers’ introduced a new class of landlords called Zamindars who regarded land as their private property and aimed at obtaining maximum monetary gains out of it. Commercialization of agriculture became prominent. Better means of communication (equipped with rapid development of railways and shipping) made trade in agricultural products feasible, especially over long distances. There were also efforts made by the British to ‘improve’ Indian agriculture, during the 18th and 19th centuries etc.
  • Conclude with balanced opinion that the efforts were both positive and negative and Indian agriculture even today hosts few features as the British rule legacy.
