- Shivaji Maharaj knew the importance of agriculture, which was the main occupation of the people in villages. So he paid attention to the welfare of the farmers and encouraged peasants to bring more land under cultivation.
- He entrusted the responsibility of organizing the land revenue system to his experienced officer Annaji Datto and warned his officers that they should not collect more revenue than that was fixed.
- Remissions were granted by him inland revenue and other taxes if the crop was lost due to excessive rains or drought, or invasion by an enemy army.
- Maharaj had also instructed his officers to provide peasants with bullocks, ploughs, and good seeds for sowing.
