POLITICAL FAILED PROJECTS OF MUHAMMAD-BIN-TUGHLUQ
Muhammad-bin-Tughluq devised three famous projects namely,increase of taxes in Doab,transfer of capital from Delhi to Devagiri and introduction of token currency.All the projects had failed miserably.In order to feed the soldiers,the taxes were collected for meeting the expenses and maintaining the army.for this purpose he levied additional taxes which led to the famines.
In order to control the prices,he issued Token currency which was made of cheap metals.the people used to pay taxes through the token currency which could also be counterfeited easily.People forged the coins and circulated in the market.Absence of proper minting facilities led to the faliure of this project.It had to be reconsidered. The transfer of the capital from Delhi to Daulatabad caused great hardships to the people.All these measures created complications and was a total disaster.
