The East India Company’s ruled in India not just through a strong army and a strong, English civil service (bureaucracy). They also tried to bring changes in the way their authority was experienced by the common man. The English introduced the unique concepts of the ‘Rule of Law’ and ‘Equality before Law’ in India. After 1833, India had a law comission. The job of the law comission was to make laws. All Indians were supposed to follow these laws and those who violated them were/could be penalised.
