What were the demands of the peasant movements?

Although the peasant movements in different parts of India had different demands, the core demands were still the same irrespective of geographical location. Some of those demands are as follows:

  1. Reduction in the amount of revenue that could be collected from farms.
  2. Emancipation ,if not outright abolition, of the Begar system
  3. Social boycott of oppressive landlords

*Note: The Begar system was a system of forced labour, where members of the populace were forced to work for the government with little to no pay.
