Explanation : The Tebhaga Peasant Movement was initiated in Bengal in 1946 by the Bengal Provincial Kisan Sabha to implement the recommendations of Flood Commission, which asked for sharecroppers to give one-third of their harvest to the landowner instead of the one-half, which they were paying at that time. In its response, the Bargadari Act was passed which provided that sharecroppers pay only one-third of their harvest to the landlords. The Movement mostly affected the districts of Northern-Bengal.
