Well See, The company (East India Company) had become the Diwan, but it still saw itself primarily as a trader, It wanted a large revenue Income but was unwilling to set up any regular system of  assessum and collection.

-> The effort was to increase the revenue as much as it could and buy fine cotton and silk cloth as cheaply as possible, Within, five years the value of goods bought by the company in Bengal Doubled, As you know.

-> Before 1865, The company had purchased goods in India Importing gold and silver from Britian. Now the revenue collected in Bengal could finance the purchase of goods for export..

Well, I thought you understood it, Any problems? Let me Know :)
