THE CHARTER ACT, 1833

The Charter Act, 1833 was the result of certain changed circumstances both in England and India. Policies of Warren Hastings and Wellesley created expansion of territory; administrative work and it lead to felt necessity of effective strong settlement. The laws in presidency town and Mofussil areas were not uniform also a Enlightened section of Indian society demanded reforms in educational sphere.

On other hand the Parliament reforms were effected in 1830 in England which formed a new House of Commons with the ideals of liberalism, which felt that it was preposterous to leave the political government in the hand of Joint Stock Company. At the same time a move was initiated by Lord. T. B. Macaulay and James Hill in England for the reformation of law of India.

According to H. Cowell Parliament was directed to three leading vices (defect) in the process of Government of India.
1) Nature of Law and Regulation in India.
2) Ill defined authority.
3) The anomalous and conflicting Judicature.

This all circumstances, defects and conflicts lead to pass the Charter Act, 1833.
