The Sikh Misls, Read More!!!
The Sikhs were organized into 12 mills or confederacies which operated in different parts of the province. These misls fully cooperated with each other.
They were originally based on the principle of equality, with all members having an equal voice in deciding the affairs of a misls and in electing its chief and other officers.
Gradually the democratic character of the misls disappeared and powerful chiefs dominated them.
The old Sikh chiefs in Ranjit Singh’s rule were transformed into big zamindars and jagirdars. He did not make any changes in the system of land revenue promulgated earlier by the Mughals.
