Solution

Following were three major problems faced by the peasants of Awadh during the days of the Non-Cooperation Movement:

i. In Awadh, the talukdars and landlords extracted very high rents and a variety of other cesses from the peasants.

ii. The peasants also had to do ‘begar’ labour for the landlords and work on their farms without any remuneration.

iii. There was no security of tenure and peasants were often evicted in order to deny any opportunity for them to develop a right over the land they cultivated.
