Lord Ripon in 1882 decided to transfer financial responsibility to the provinces. Accordingly he divided the resources of revenues into three categories- Imperial, Provincial and Divided. The Imperial Heads of revenue were customs, salt and opium, posts and telegraph, mint etc. These revenues were exclusively meant for the Central Government. The Provincial Head were receipts of general administration and included subjects like law and justice public works, education, police, jails etc. The income from these sources was exclusively assigned to the provinces. In addition to this a percentage of land revenue was also assigned to the provinces by the Imperial Government. The Divided Heads included excise, stamps, registration, forests, licenses etc. The income from these heads was shared between the imperial and the Provincial Government. 1 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
