  3. The Revolt of 1857 The revolt of 1857 was a product of the character and policies of rule. The cumulative effect of British expansionist policies, economic exploitation and administrative innovations over the years had adversely affected the positions of all- rulers of Indian states, sepoys, zamindars, peasants, traders, artisans, pundits, maulvis, etc The simmering discontent burst in the form of a violent storm in 1857 which shook the British empire in India to its very foundations The causes of the revolt emerged from all aspects-socio-cultural, economic and political of daily existence of Indian population cutting through all sections and classes. These causes are discussed in next slides

  4. ECONOMIC CAUSES The colonial policies of the East India Company destroyed the ECONOMIC CAUSES traditional economic fabric of the Indian society British rule also meant misery to the artisans and handicraftsmen The annexation of Indian states by the Company cut off their major source of patronage. Added to this, British policy discouraged Indian handicrafts and promoted British goods The highly skilled Indian craftsmen were forced to look for alternate sources of employment that hardly existed, as the destruction of Indian handicrafts was not accompanied by the development of modern industries Zamindars, the traditional landed aristocracy, often saw their land rights forfeited with frequent use of a quo warranto by the administration. This resulted in a loss of status for them in the villages. In Awadh, the storm center of the revolt, 21,000 taluqdars had their estates confiscated and suddenly found themselves without a source of income, "unable to work, ashamed to beg, condemned to penury These dispossessed taluqdars seized the opportunity presented by the sepoy revolt to oppose the Britislh and regain what they had lost The ruination of Indian industry increased the pressure on agriculture and land, the lopsided development in which resulted in pauperization of the country in general

  5. POLITICAL CAUSES The East India Company's greedy policy of aggrandizement accompanied by broken pledges and oaths resulted in loss of political prestige for it, on the one hand, and caused suspicion in the minds of almost all ruling princes in India, on the other, through such policies as of Effective Control', Subsidiary Alliance' and 'Doctrine of Lapse The right of succession was denied to Hindu princes. The hous,e The right of succession was denied to Hindu princes. The of Mughals was humbled when on Prince Faqiruddin's death in 1856, whose succession had been recognized conditionally by Lord Dalhousie Lord Canning announced that the next prince on succession would have to renounce the regal title and the ancestral Mughal palaces, in addition to renunciations agreed upon by Prince Faqiruddin ADMINISTRATIVE CAUSES Rampant corruption in the Company's administration, especially among the police, petty officials and lower law courts, and the absentee sovereigntyship character of British rule imparted a foreign and alien look to it in the eyes of Indians

  6. SOCIO-RELIGIOUS CAUSES The activities of Christian missionaries who followed the British flag in India were looked upon with suspicion by Indians. The attempts at socioreligious reform such as abolition of sati, support to widow- remarriage and women's education Government's decision to tax mosque and temple lands and legislative measures, such as the Religious Disabilities Act, 1856, which modified Hindu customs, for instance declaring that a change of religion did not debar a son from inheriting the property of his heathen father INFLUENCE OF OUTSIDE EVENTS The revolt of 1857 coincided with certain outside events in which the British suffered serious losses-the First Afghan War (1838-42), Punjab Wars (1845-49), Crimean Wars (1854-56), Santhal rebellion 1855-52 These A depiction of sati had obvious psychological repercussions

  7. DISCONTENT AMONG SEPOYS Restrictions on wearing caste and sectarian marks and secret rumors of proselytizing To the religious Hindu of the time, crossing the seas meant loss of caste In 1856 Lord Canning's Government passed the General Service Enlistment Act which decreed that all future recruits to the Bengal Army would have to give an undertaking to serve anywhere their services might be required by the Government. This caused resentment Order that they would not be given the foreign service allowance (Matta) when serving in Sindh or in Punjab. The annexation of Awadh, home of any of the sepoys, further inflamed their feelings
