criminal tribe settlements in Andhra Pradesh were not under the management of one single agency and therefore the government found it difficult to prescribe a uniform set of rules with regard to the financial management of settlements. The financial management of settlements was entrusted to Christian missionaries. Sitanagaram and Stuartpuram settlements were under the control of the Salvation Army. 1 The missionary body agreed to follow the general principles laid down by the colonial government. Madras government paid the Salvation Army a fixed amount for the administration and supervision of settlements. This amount was paid in four quarterly instalments. The items of expenditure were classified into service charges and industrial charges. The net surplus of settlements in Andhra Pradesh by early 1922 was ₹25,635. 2
