  1. How was the administration of the Ahom state organised?

Answer: 

The administration of the Ahom state was organised in the following ways:

  • The Ahom state depended upon forced labour and those forced to work for the state were called ‘Paiks’.
  • Each village had to send a number of paiks by rotation.
  • People from densely populated areas were shifted to less populated places, thus breaking up the Ahom clan.
  • By the first half of the seventeenth century, the administration became centralised.
  • Almost all adult males served in the army during war.
  • They were engaged in building dams, irrigation systems and other public works and also introduced new methods of rice cultivation.
  • The Ahom society was divided into clans or khels. Each Khel controlled several villages.
  • The peasant was assigned land by his village community and even the king could not take it away without the community’s consent.
