what are the effects of the land revenue settlements introduced by the british?

Land revenue settlement under the British led to the new form of private ownership that did not benefit the peasantry class. Infact , it led to their impoverishment. The ownership of land became unequal.
The village artisans became jobless and landless labourers. The peasantry were exploited by the money lenders and middlemen. This system gave rise to landlordism that had negative impact on the Indians especially the peasantry.
