Solution

‘Industrial Revolution’ indicates the transition from manual production to mechanized production. In the 18th and 19th centuries steam-powered and water-powered (Hydraulic) machines came into use for industrial production.

The industrial revolution, however, affected India adversely. It set the decline of the Indian cottage industry. The textile industry in India almost came to a halt. The administrative policies of the East India Company were made to benefit the British than the Indians. Railways made it possible to transport European goods to rural areas for sale. It turned into monetary exploitation of the Indians.
