Rampa rebellion (1922–1924) UPSC NOTE


  • After the passing of the 1882 Madras Forest Act in an attempt 

    • To exploit the economic value of wooded areas,

    • Its restrictions on the free movement of tribal people in the forests prevented them from engaging in their traditional podu agricultural system, a form of subsistence economy, which involved the system of shifting cultivation.

  • Around the same time of the Act, the British Raj authorities had also emasculated the traditional hereditary role of the muttadars.

  • Muttadars who until then had been the de facto rulers in the hills as tax collectors for the plains-living rajas. 

  • These people were now reduced to the role of mere civil servants, with no overarching powers, no ability to levy taxes at will, and no right to inherit their position. 

  • Thus, the cultivators and the tax collectors, who once would have been in opposition to each other, were instead now broadly aligned in their disaffection with the colonial power.

  • Rama Raju harnessed this discontent of the tribal people to support his anti-colonial zeal while also accommodating the grievances of those muttadars who were sympathetic to his cause rather than those who were selfish in the pursuit of a revived status for themselves.

  • Rama Raju adopted aspects from the Non-cooperation movement such as promoting temperance, Khaddar, anti-liquor campaign, and the boycott of colonial courts in favour of panchayat courts.
