Charter Act of 1833 - Audio Lecture

In this Audio Tutorial I will trace in detail the background and provisions of Charter Act of 1833. Through the Charter Act of 1833 the commercial activities of the East India Company were finished and the East India Company was transformed into a purely administrative body.

# Important provisions of this Charter Act of 1833 were that the designation of the Governor General of Bengal was changed to the Governor General of India and the Governors of Bengal and Madras Province were made inferior to him.

# The Company's territories in India were held by it "IN TRUST FOR HIS MAJESTY, HIS HEIRS AND SUCCESSORS".
