Q. The “Diwan-i-Amir Kohi” was related to which of the following?

[A] Agriculture

[B] Accounts

[C] Weights & Measures

[D] Irrigation

Answer: A

Explanation: Equally innovative was Muhammad Tughlaq’s scheme to expand cultivation. But it also failed miserably. It coincided with a prolonged and severe famine in the Doab.

  • The Sultan established a separate department (Diwan-i-Amir Kohi) to take care of agriculture.
