Fixation of grant after the annexation by the British Govt.

When however, an assignment of revenue of a specified amount has been made by the British Government after annexation as a new grant, it being left to a subordinate authority to determine the particular lands out of whose revenue it is to be met, it should, in the absence of anything to the contrary be construed merely as a grant of a fixed sum per annum in cash.  The nature of such a grant cannot be altered by any arrangement that the subordinate authority may make for meeting it; that is to say, if that authority sets aside the revenue of certain lands to meet it, and that revenue falls off, otherwise than under the ordinary rules of suspensions and remissions (see paragraph 51 below). Government will have to make good the deficiency to the grantee; and, on the other hand, if the revenue of those lands increases, the grantee will not be entitled to the increment.  He will only  receive what Government sanctioned for him viz., a fixed sum per annum in cash.
