The steps taken are given below:
  • Accountants were appointed by the state to check the amount of revenue collected.
  • Care was taken that the muqti collected only the taxes prescribed by the state and not more than that.
  • It was also taken care that he kept only the required number of soldiers.
  • The muqtis may have wanted to defy the orders to the Sultans because their appointment was not hereditary. Also, their job was transferable. What is more, the conditions of service were severely imposed on them which they did not like.
