Lord Cornwallis

Cornwallis was responsible for "laying the foundation for British rule throughout India and setting standards for the services, courts, and revenue collection that remained remarkably unaltered almost to the end of the British era."

Permanent Settlement or Permanent Revenue System or popularly known as Zamindari system was passed in 1790 and the essence of the arrangement was that the zamindars would effectively become hereditary landholders, paying the company (East India Company) tax based on the value of the land. In 1790 the proposal was sent to London, where the company directors approved the plan in 1792. Cornwallis began implementing the regulations in 1793.
