Harsha is known to have divided the State Income into equal parts that comprised__:
1. Government Expenses
2. Salary of Public Servants
3. Rewards for intellectual attainments
4. Gifts and donations
Chose the correct option from the codes given below:
Land revenue was derived from a variety of taxes – from the land, and from various categories of produce at various stages of production. The maintenance of an imperial façade was a purposeless expense in economic terms and must have resulted in a pressure on the economy. It is not surprising that the later Gupta coinage indicates an economic crisis. The reference to Harsha dividing the national income into a quarter for government expenses, another quarter for the pay of public servants, a third quarter for the reward of intellectual attainments, and the last quarter for gifts, although idealistic in concept, may have been economically impractical.
