    1. THE REVOLT OF 1857 - RESULTS GRADE 8

    2. The rule of the East India Company came to an end. India now came under the direct rule of the British Parliament and the Queen of England. Queen Victoria issued a Proclamation (made a public and official announcement) promising to look after the welfare of the Indian people.

    3. Treaties (formal agreements between two groups) with Indian states would be honoured. The Doctrine of Lapse was abolished (completely removed). The right to adopt sons as legal heirs (successors) was permitted. A general pardon was granted to all the rebels except those who had killed British subjects. The British government would not interfere in the social and religious customs of the people.

    4. Indians would be given opportunities to work with the administration. High posts in the government would be given on the basis of merit, not race. The army was reorganized and strengthened.

    5. CONCLUSION The Revolt of 1857 came as a great shock to the British. The Proclamation of the Queen (public and official announcement made by the Queen) was an attempt to pacify (calm down)the feelings of the Indians and to convince (assure) them that their interests were now safe under the rule of the British Crown.
