Abstract
In contrast to the Mauryas, the Gupta administration was not centralised. This was the case even while the king retained complete authority over all aspects of government, but he also distributed authority to officials and regional rulers throughout India. The kingship was passed down through families, but there was no established primogeniture system, therefore the power of the royal family was constrained. In contrast to the Mauryas, the kings of the Gupta dynasty gave themselves pretentious names, such as Maharaja-Dhiraja, Parameshvara, and Paramabhattaraka, to reflect the fact that they ruled over kings of less power. It would appear that the empire is composed of separate Bhuktis (province). After then, the Bhuktis were separated into Vishyas (districts). Gramika presided over the administrative affairs of the village. Their political structure has characteristics that are reminiscent of feudalism in several respects.
