Solution:
Option(C) is correct

Akbar’s finance minister Todar Mal introduced a land revenue system whereby the aggregate of the rate of collection for 10 years from 1570 to 1580 was taken and one third (1/3) of them was taken as the basis of assessment.

This new system was called as Zabti System or Ain-i-Dahsala.
