The Mughals did not exactly loot India. They ruled India over a long period of time. Corruption was there as in almost every other dispensation: but, money was not taken out of the country.
The looting was carried out by the British on an unimaginable scale. Not only that, the plundered wealth was taken out of India to England and vastly contributed to make Britain what it once was and is today. No doubts about it. It was this export of looted wealth that pushed India into chronic poverty and backwardness from a position of prosperity and self-sustenance. We have yet to recover.
We got many things from the British. However, the plunder of our wealth and assets remains a black spot in India's history.
When Moghals were thrown out, still there was plenty of gold & silver every where which attracted the British, Potuguese, French etc towards India.
When British left, I was a school kid and I saw there was in every poor man's house still had some silver utensils. If a child is born, silver feeder bottle used to be gifted by someone. When guests arrive, they would be served water in glass made of silver and food in silver plates. Even our British Re 1 coin was in circulation till mid 1950s which was made of 10 gms of pure silver. In other words everyone carried some silver (coin) in his Pocket. Every person, however poor he may be could make his own house by the end of his career, as well as gold jewels for his family, which is impossible now. It is said that the Nizam of Hyderabad could have walked on golden bricks upto a distance of Delhi.
The Moghals & British were here to stay, not to loot the country for every 5 years or so as elected members and transfer India's wealth to Swiss bank & others overseas. . So the outside rulers had honesty and the British left behind a generation of honest politicians.
Who looted India more, Britishers, Mughals, or the current politicians?
Current politician by a magnitude of several orders.
Mughals never looted for most part of their reign.
Biritish made wealth out of technological backwardness and our ignorance of global realities but contributed a great deal by building canal, telegraph and rail networks as well as creating a rule based law ( much of which has been lost in last 70 years).

Was India looted by the British and Mughals the most or Indian politicians and bureaucrats looted most of India?
Mughals did not loot India to repatriate the largesse out of India.
Yes the British colonials looted the country and repatriated huge sum though an unlikely $45Tr as some say. Of course it is difficult to enumerate / evaluate.
But it is not difficult to say how much the Politico-Bureaucrat nexus is looting the country since 1955 and particularly since 2003 when the scale of loot is huge and repatriation to safer havens outside India also is more.
The present scale of corruption loot may be Rs25,00,000 cr per annum most conservative estimate, much goes into real estate and farm lands, diamonds and gold besides in safe tax havens. As recently confirmed by contractors in Karnataka and as seen from the washing away of Expressways and Projects built under Modi’s BJP and in AP we can believe that 40% of any civil work is eaten away by politicians, bureaucrats and engineers.
It may be assessed from our place in the world’s most corrupt at No. 85 and from the fact that Transparency International, the Global Coalition against Corruption, was driven out of India by Modi’s BJP govt. For Modi’s BJP collecting bribes is legal as practiced by Kautilya to win supporters to Chandragupt and so there is no black money in the country. Don’t forget that corrupt money runs a parallel economy in India.
So what our Politicians and Bureaucrats are looting definitely is not less than what the Btish had. At least the British paid back some to build Infrastructure where as these Neo-looters are even selling away infrastructure for bribes and kickbacks.
All are equal in their times.
And many more are involved in looting india now
Who has looted India most - Indian politicians or Britishers?
There is NO PEER to Indians in this. In TN, my junior once told me:
PWD / or village panchayat showed- expense 7 lac to dig a well, 2 lac to close it, because found no water. In reality- well was NOT dug at all. 100% loot.
Railways- Gauge conversion- 10 crores per kilometer! ( No new land acquisition, even old rails can be used), but 10 crores/km!
90% or more of public money looted in many ways.
Who has looted India most - Indian politicians or Britishers?
Ignorant Indian slaves who we call people. We looted ourselves by choosing to be ignorant and electing the deserving looters who throw some candy for each re-election by means of subsidies, biryani and booze. That is about 80% of illiterate and 99.99% literate slaves. The 0.001% can not make a dent to this juggernaut’s course of self-loot
QUESTION : Who hurt India the most, the British or the Mughals?
ANSWER : In my opinion, neither the Mughal rule nor the British rule in the past is hurting Indians living in the 21 century India.
Based to my observation, Aryan Invasion from central Asia to South Asia around 3500 years back is hurting Indians even in the 21st century.
I will give a simple example to help people under the subject
Aryan Invaders were responsible for creating the “Caste system" in South Asia and unfortunately many Indians living in the 21st century are victims of caste discrimination.
Going by the historical GDP estimates by Angus Maddison in his book Contours of the World Economy 1-2030 AD, we find the below estimates for the real GDP in terms of 1990$.
1500 - $60.5 bn (let’s take this as the start of the Mughal empire)
1850 - $125 bn (end of Mughal empire, start of British)
1947 - $214 bn (end of British empire)
which basically translates to
107% growth during 350 years of the Mughal empire, or about 0.21% per annum
71% growth during 100 years of British empire, or about 0.54% per annum
For the sake of comparison, the same growth for India post-independence has been ~4.5% per annum.
1500 - 605亿美元 (我们可以把这个时间作为莫卧儿帝国的开始)
1850年- 1250亿美元 (莫卧儿帝国结束，英国开始统治印度)
1947年- 2140亿美元 (英国结束统治)
The Mughals were far better than the Britishers.
When the Mughals invaded the Indian subcontinent in 1526, they were goverend by this one supreme motive- To conquer the territories and govern them.
Undoubtedly, the Mughals did eye on the immense wealth this country had in its store, but a sizeable portion of the wealth looted by them was inturn invested back in India for the construction of palaces, forts, mosques and many other monuments of Mughal history that we see today.
The Mughals also spent dearly on the welfare of the population by constructing canals, ports and even trade centres and cities.
