All these combined to create a situation in which disintegration became inevitable."


  6. Decentralization of Ferozshah Tughlaq . Firoz gave extensive powers to his nobles and officials which ultimately went against the larger interests of the state. .According to Sir Woolesely Haig, "His system of decentralisation accelerated the downfall of his dynasty."


  7. Unwieldy empire .M.S. Ayyangar, in this context has observed, "The unwieldiness and the difficulty of communications between the various parts of the empire led to the rise of provincial governors into independence."
