Summary

If we use the term Permanent Settlement to include the law for the protection of raiyats which sprang directly from the legislation of 1795 then it is possible to maintain that the principal gainers from the Permanent Settlement are the raiyats and not the zamindars. [...] The root of the matter seems to be that the Tenants' Party feels that the rights of the zamindars stand in the way of reduction of rent. [...] In a sense then the proper maintenance of the cultivator is the first charge on the land and the rent comes out of the surplus. [...] To calculate the price of the average gross produce and subtract a sum equal to the cost of the cultivators' labour and all the expenses of cultivation is not practicable. [...] He imagined that the grounds of enhancement which were then legal were not the same as the grounds of enhancement nowadays and that the quotation which the Khan Bahadur had made from the Court of Directors' Despatch was their opinion at the time.
