Restoration of Peace in a Conquered Area, as included in chapter V of Book XIII in Arthashastra
, mentions that there can three types of territories which includes a newly acquired land; one which is recovered and one which is inherited. In case of land which is conquered it shall include land in wild tracks and land in single villages. Having acquired the new territory, he should begin by covering his enemy's vices with his own virtues; should be free to endow any number of rewards to the newly conquered people; he should try to adopt the same way of life as his people. He should make all efforts to provide security to the people and provide them with the minimum requirements of life. He should make provisions to relax the level of taxes and rules of imprisonment.
Restoration of Peace in a Conquered Area socially advises the conqueror to prohibit the slaughter of animals particularly the female breeds at a period of reproduction in the specific months which are mentioned in the Arthashastra. About those who can harm the conqueror should be sent to remote areas. Overall the conqueror should ensure utmost security of his people and those who intend to harm the peace should be sent to remoter areas.
Thus, Restoration of Peace in a Conquered Area ensures that the conqueror having recovered his lost area should get rid of those vices which made him loose his property and develop those virtues which made him win them again. He should further hide the vices of his ancestors and should develop only the virtues which shall change the quality of the enemy as well.
