To earn quick profits, the British imposed heavy taxes, thereby forcing the Indian farmers to abandon their fields. They decided to do

away with import duty for goods manufactured in England. This crippled the Indian industries. In 1818, they passed Regulation III.

Under it, an Indian could be jailed without trial in a court. All the time British officers in India drew big salaries and also made

fortunes in private business. By 1829, Britain was exporting British goods worth seven crore rupees to India. The British prospered

on the Company's loot, while the Indian industries began to die.
