Among other things, vast areas were turned into tea plantations.

Answer In India, particularly in bengal, the britishers forced

local farmers to plant Indigo,which they exported to European

market for largescale use to prepare blue 'dye' for booming

industry.The entire land was used for Indigo plantation which left

the farmer family starving due to lack of rice or vegetables.
