The revolt of 1857 led to an introspection about the efficiency and suitability of the police and judicial systems. Oudh being a new province, several significant experiments of far reaching import in these branches were tried there. A completely new police system was evolved there. A system of Honorary Magistrates was also developed. These and many other new features, after their inital trial in Oudh, were introduced in other provinces.
