The Delhi Sultans divided their kingdom into a number of units known as Iqtas. Each iqta was headed by a military leader known as Mukti.

During the sultanate period,the land was distributed to the lords as IQTAS with the authority to collect taxes.The lord who had the responsibility of the IQTAS was known as the 'Muqti' or 'Wali. Out of the taxes collected,the surplus after meeting the expenses of the army authority was only for collecting taxes. The IQTA did not have any hereditary rights or any other special rights.
