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.

Iqta' was an Islamic practice of tax farming that became common in Muslim Asia during the Buyid dynasty. The prominent Orientalist Claude Cahen described the Iqta' as follows: a form of an administrative grant, often (wrongly) translated by the European word “fief”.
