Page 4 - The fixed field assessment for the term of thirty years, introduced by our surveys, thus secures to the cultivator the full advantages of a thirty years' lease without burdening him with any condition beyond that of discharging the assessment for the single year to which his engagement extends. He has thus all the security of tenure which the longest lease could confer, without the attendant liabilities and risk which his limited capital and precarious circumstances would be quite inadequate to...

The information to be embodied in the diagram best...

Were we to do so, we should depart from the principle laid down...
Page 23 - We should not think of imposing different rates of assessment on a tract of country similarly situated in respect of these three points, in consequence of the actual condition of the cultivators varying in different parts of it ' Each collectorate being divided into districts (talukas) ', of which the management and records are distinct, it is an obvious advantage to consider the assessment of each of these divisions separately.

Page 25 - But instead of a particular sum at which a District should be assessed, it amounts to the same thing, and is more convenient to determine the rates to be imposed on the several descriptions of soil and culture contained within its limits, so as to produce the amount in question.
