Evils of dual government:

  1. Revenue was collected by greedy and corrupt Indian officials who reduced the peasants to conditions of utter misery.
  2. Conditions of the people got worse because of a terrible famine where one-third of the population perished.
  3. Nobody paid attention to people affected, neither the Nawab nor the Company.
  4. Hence, administration and economy began to collapse.
  5. In 1772, Warren Hastings was appointed as the Governor of Bengal.
