India was divided into 11 provinces and 250 districts. These two empires changed the development of India, but the British Empire changed the Indian Economy in a way that made the Indians more dependent than they were under the Mughal Empire. At the same time, both empires continued to develop agriculture through well developed irrigation systems and irrigation canals.
