Abstract

Assam, situated in the North Eastern part of India, was ruled by the Ahoms (1228-1826) for about six hundred years and then it was annexed by the English East India Company after the Treaty of Yandaboo(1826) in a gradual process and tried their level best to colonise this region through the annexation of Lower Assam(1828),Cachar(1832),Upper Assam(1838) and North Cachar Hills(1854).Geographically, Assam was divided into two valleys namely the Brahmaputra valley and the Barak valley. Both the valley of Assam had huge wastelands covered with thick forests and jungles. These unutilized, uncultivated, unused, unsettled and uninhabited lands had enormous economic prospects. So, colonial British government introduced a set of wasteland settlement rules to colonise the land of Assam.In this paper,an attempt has been made to highlight the Wasteland Settlement Rules enacted by the British government in Assam for the cultivation of tea on the one hand and to colonise this jungle land by the British keeping special emphasis on Cachar district of Assam during 19th century. The people, who had been living clearing these wastelands, were not given land patta and thereby these people had been living a life of uncertainty without having land rights due to the eviction policy of the government of Assam. In preparing this paper,both primary and secondary sources are consulted to find out the problems of wastelands of Assam with special emphasis on Cachar district in analytical research method.
