Document Summary

Rasa man singh, rasa todar mal, din-i-ilahi, ibat khana, fate pur sikri, sirhindi, dara. Society in the mughal empire, the entry of the east india trading company and the contest it presented,a also look at why the british came in. Subadar is a head of provincial government, jagirdar is the person who has right to collect revenue from the land (a section of land) and get a certain % of this revenue. So all of these overlap, as rank holders have land and are administrators etc, it"s an overlapping of social, political and economic power. The british rule is like a grid, strictly divided. What the mughals do is redefine the tribute givers as people of the system, as zamindars, from tribute givers to office holders, even if they hold very little land and are therefore small office holders. Because the positions overlap it"s a very flexible system.
