Abstract

FORCED LABOUR IN MAHARASTRA IN THE SEVENTEENTH AND EIGHTEENTH CENTURIES: A Study in its Nature and Change BY V. S. KADAM (Shivaji University) Though the system of forced or compulsory labour, wherein the government exercised force and limited the choice of the labour, has existed in India since the second century, its systematic study, cover- ing some period and region of India has not yet been made. In case of Maharastra there are a few references and notes bearing on the historic system of forced labour. This paper is an attempt to study the system of forced labour in Maharastra till the end of the eighteenth century.1 1 56 I have used official correspondence and orders included in two lengthy series: Sivacaritra Siihitya (its first eleven volumes) and Selections from the Satara Rdjds' and the Peshzvas' Diaries (in nine volumes) edited by G. C. Vad and others. The relevent volumes from other series like Mardthya-ncya- Itihiisiici Sadhane (in twenty-two volumes) edited by V. K. Rajwade and Selections from the Pefwii Daftar edited by G. S.
