This volume, sixth in the series, provides a critical appraisal of the two most important institutions of the Mughal agrarian set-up ?? Zamindars and the Jagirdars.Prior to Professor Grover??s writings on the said subject??which incidentally are being published for the first time??there was considerable confusion amongst the administrators and economic historians regarding the origin, meaning, and usage of the word ??Zamindari??. Through an extensive study of the original literature existing during that period on the subject matter, Professor Grover was able to break new ground in deciphering the exact manner in which the Zamindari and Jagir systems were used during the Mughal age.This volume contains a detailed description of the position, types, rights and obligations of the Zamindars of various regions under the Mughal Empire. It also provides a critical analysis of how the Mughal Emperors transferred their right to the people of different socio-political backgrounds. Detailed information is contained herein about the Jagir system as it existed during the Mughal age, including the administration of the Jagir, transfer of Jagir, fiscal rights and obligations of Jagirdars, checks on the authority of Jagirdars, and the impact of Jagirdari system on Mughal administration and peasantry. The information contained in the present volume ought to be extremely useful to the scholars interested in the economic history of the Mughal age, especially since no authentic proof existed about the origin and definition of the Zamindari system and details of the workings of the Jagir system prior to this systematic study of Professor Grover, conducted in the 1950s based on original Persian and other multi-langual documents. Printed Pages: 172.
