Description of this Book

Excerpt from The Land Revenue of Bombay, Vol. 1: A History of Its Administration, Rise, and Progress If a Ryot refused or was unable to pay his revenue, the Sebundy (revenue-collecting peon) pressed him for it, confined him in the village choky (lock-up), exposed him to the sun, put a heavy stone on his head, and prevented his eating and drinking until he paid. If this did not succeed, he was carried to the Mamlutdar (or chief native oficer of a district - in the farming days the farmer himself, probably), his cattle were sold, and himself thrown into prison or into irons.The same reliable authority thus describes the farming system.
