excess production of cash crops actually led to a situation where the farmers had money with them and yet they could not buy food grains .why did such a situation arise
All the farmers were forced to grow indigo crops by the British.So, there was no one to grow food crops. The cultivation of food crops almost grew nil. Also, the crop(indigo) left the land barren and unusuable for growing other crops.Since there was no production of food crops, farmers could not buy food grains even after getting some money.
hope this helps u and thumbs up plzz..
Although they were provided with a very minimal amount but as there were no food crops grown at that time hence they could not buy the food grains.
