Champaran Satyagraha (1917) First Civil Disobedience Movement

Gandhi was requested by Rajkumar Shukla to look into the problems of the indigo planters of Champaran in Bihar.

(Tinkathia system -The European planters had been forcing the peasants to grow Indigo on 3/20 of their total land).

The peasants were forced to sell the produce at prices fixed by the Europeans.

Gandhi convinced the authorities to abolish the tinkathia system and the peasants were given compensation for the illegal dues extracted from them.

Gandhi had won the first battle of civil disobedience in India.
