Agriculture, Peasant, Dogra State, Taxation, Begar, Agrarian Crisis.
Agriculture has been the mainstay of the Kashmir Valley since its hoary past. The abundance of fertile soils throughout the Kashmir Valley and moist and warm temperature and abundant water resources facilitated the Kashmiris to practice rich and profitable agriculture. As a result, a huge quantity of both food and cash crops was cultivated not only to fulfil the local needs but also to export to neighbouring States. However, with the transfer of Kashmir to Maharaja Gulab Singh and the subsequent phase of unparallel oppression of masses, Kashmir witnessed a severe agrarian crisis. The present paper, therefore, aims to highlight the main factors responsible for shaping this agrarian crisis during the period under study.
