Why did the Kol revolt take place?

The Kol revolt, also known as the Kol rebellion or Kol uprising, was the result of a reaction to economic exploitation brought on by the systems of land tenure and administration that had been introduced by the East India Company.

The characteristic feature of the Kol rebellion was that the Kol tribesmen did not fight alone. Other tribesmen like the Hos, Oraons, and Mundas joined forces with them. The Kol did not hesitate to fight with traditional weapons against the Presidency armies, who fought with modern instruments of warfare. But in the face of such modern instruments, the Kol revolt stood no chance and the revolt was suppressed as a result.
