The permanent settlement came into operation in Bengal in 1793.This settlement was made with the rajas and the talukedarsof Bengal. They were now classified aszamindars and they had to pay the revenue demand that was fixed in perpetuity. Now the Zamindar was not a land owner in the village but revenue collector of the state .At the same time the Zamindar had to pay revenue rigidly on the due date even if crops had failed . In case of failure of payment estates were to be auctioned to recover the revenue.
