Absentee Landlordism
East India Company ( EIC ) won the battle of Plassey in 1757 and the battle of Bauxar in 1764. In a course of time, EIC became the de facto ruler of India. When EIC became the ruler of India, it had allowed the old zamindari system to continue. But this old zamindari system could not function effectively as EIC had expected. So, EIC had snatched away zamindari rights from the old zamindars.

Winston Churchill: Manipulation Or Betrayal Of India
From the 1920s onwards, Mr. Winston Churchill was firm in opposing any proposal resembling genuine self-rule for India. He had a deep conviction that Britain would be fatally weakened if its Empire lost India. This conviction might have been strengthened because of the dismemberment of the Ottoman Empire by the 1920s. Through the Anglo-French machination in the early 1920s, the Ottoman Empire dissolved into some independent, some as western colonies and others as UN-mandated protectorates.
