Question: What were the problems of Indian weavers in the early 19th century?
Answer: In the early 19th century Britishers started exporting their machine-made clothes to the Indian subcontinent. The export market of India collapsed on a large scale. There was a shortage of raw cotton as all was exported to the United Kingdom. And due to the American Civil War, the supplies to Britain were cut down, and thus the amount of import to England increased on a large scale.
