Indian Polity 101: Charter Act 1833

Charter Act 1833

  • The GG of Bengal became Governor-General of India.
  • Remember, the laws made before 1833 were called regulations and after 1833 were called Acts.
  • Charter Act 1833 said that the territories in India were in the trust of British Crown held by EIC.
  • The powers of civil and military powers were vested in the Governor General of India in Council, known as Indian Council.
  • So now the GG’s government was called Government of India.
  • For the first time, an open system of competition for the Indian Civil Servants was proposed (but not implemented).
