                  Outcomes from Past land Settlements in Garhwal

              Till the Batten land settlement (1840), the economic conditions of average farmer were very bad.  British formed a new district as Garhwal. British started appointing new employees for district administration.  Barring Haridwar to Badrinath, there was no proper road in Garhwal. The Haridwar- Badrinath Road was the only market place for farmers selling their produces. Slowly, the farmer condition was improving. People started keeping guns for killing wild animals. People killed wild animals in quantity. People started cutting forest trees converting forest into agricultural land. Now, people had self confidence for farming.  People started visiting for  markets as Ramnagar, Kotdwara, Patali, Dharaun etc. for selling their products and buying products not available in Garhwal hills. The barter was the exchange system on those markets.  Now, people were zealous for farming. By 1860, the people of south Garhwal were more prosperous and happy than the past (Beckett, and Dabral)
