Mansabdars

The mansabdars governed and commanded the armies in the emperor’s name. The system (Mansabdari Syatem) was introduced by the emperor Akbar. For the maintenance of the army, the mansabdars received a salary, which emperor paid in cash but later they used to get their salary in form of the revenue generated from the land assigned to them.
