HC Deb 18 July 1889 vol 338 cc705-6

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for India whether the Madras Government has granted any remission of Land Revenue in Ganjam to help the ryots to tide over the period of scarcity; if so, to what extent; and, if not, whether he is aware that the principle of remissions have always been recognised and acted upon in Madras during a scarcity?


The Madras Revenue system provides for remission of Land Revenue in case of drought. The rule will, no doubt be, acted on in Ganjam; but it is too early yet to obtain reliable information as to the amount of remission granted.
