Abstract [en]

The British were unable to establish control over northeast Bengal due to the region’s climate and ecology, especially its fluid riverine systems. The ephemeral nature of land itself in Northeast Bengal made the region an “ungovernable” space for the British rulers. This “fluid nature” was incompatible with the ruling methods and the land-revenue settlement the East India Company tried to establish.
