Solution

The correct option is A 1859
The Inland Emigration Act was passed by the colonial government in 1859. It prevented plantation workers in Assam from leaving the tea garden without permission. When they heard of the Non-Cooperation Movement, thousands of workers defied the authorities and left for their homes, but were caught by the police and brutally beaten up.
