The Pat­war sys­tem was first in­tro­duced in the In­dian sub­con­ti­nent, dur­ing the short, but event­ful rule of Sher Shah Suri, and was fur­ther en­hanced by Em­peror Akbar. The British colo­nial era made minor amend­ments but main­tained the sys­tem.

In 1814, leg­is­la­tion was en­acted re­quir­ing all vil­lages to main­tain an ac­coun­tant (ta­lati) as an of­fi­cial agent of the government. The Kulka­rni Watan was abol­ished in 1918 and paid ta­latis from all castes who were ap­pointed to the new of­fice of the Ta­lati. In some cases, the ta­latis were the op­pressed castes, and the abol­ish­ing of the Kulka­rni Watan sys­tem was viewed as a pro­gres­sive move.
