B. C. S. The word Zemindarree in the time of the Moghuls signified the particular extent of land over which one zemindar or landholder exercised jurisdiction the collection of the revenues of that district was one of the chief duties entrusted to him and the object of the greatest importance to the state. [...] In cases where the deeds under which the talook was formed only alienated the ze►indar's title to collect the rents without conveying any prprietary right in the soil or where it was evident from the form or worting of the lease that the zemindar contemplated the resumption of his title the talook was considered dependent and the rent of the talook was included in the assets of the zemindarre [...] These are the density of the jungle required to be cleared the situation of the land with reference to markets public thoroughfares or rivers the demand for land in the neighbourhood the means of irrigation the quality of the soil and water the aspect of the ground and the heal-. [...] In parts of the country where the villages are built inrows or streets and the houses clustered together the value of all lands is somewhat affected by their degree of proximity to the vilage but the fields in the immediate vicinity of the houses are of peculiar value from the facility with which they are guarded and the opportunity afforded of irrigating these from the village wells. [...] V. 1812 the service of the notice brings the case under the jurisdiction of the Revenue Courts and if a balance remain unpaid at the end of the year the zemindar cannot plead this balance as giving him a right to oust the cultivator under the provisions of Section X. Reg.
