Expert Answer:

Hello Subbarao,

Three important reasons why the non-cooperation movement gradually slowed down in the cities are as follows:

  • Whereas mill cloth was cheap due to mass production, khadi cloth was expensive. Hence, the urban poor couldn’t abstain from using mill cloth for too long.
  • Alternative Indian institutions were slow to come up. As a result the non-cooperating Indians ultimately had to go back to British institutions.
  • As a result, the students started attending government schools again and lawyers joined back in government courts.
