    A)  Only 1             

    B)  1 and 2

    C)  2 and 3           

    D)  All of these

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] Permanent settlement was implemented in Bengal by Lord Cornwallis in 1793. It was for 30 years. After not realising the expected target of profit and other ill-effects of permanent settlement, Britishers opted for devising some other method of land revenue. So, they implemented Ryotwari settlement in Bombay, Madras, Assam and Burma. This also disturbed the social fabric of the area. Then, Britishers implemented Mahalwari settlement in most part of modern Uttar Pradesh, North-Western Province and Punjab.
