    Solution:

    The above statement is false.
    Chauth was the land revenue claimed by the zamindars in the Maratha region, which was usually at 25%.
    Another tax, called Sardeshmukhi, was the land revenue paid to the head revenue Collector in the Deccan region. This land revenue was usually paid at 9 to 10%. By the early years of the 18th century, Maratha rulers had become the overalls of the entire Deccan Peninsula and started to impose these taxes in their region. Under the Peshwa, Marathas developed a successful revenue administration recognised in most of the Deccan Peninsula. Through this revenue, they could launch raids over the enemy regions and expand their territory.
    The correct statement would be Chauth was the land revenue claimed by the zamindars in the Maratha region.
