After his defeat, the emperor granted the Company the right to the "collection of Revenue" in the provinces of Bengal modern day BengalBihar, and Odishaknown as "Diwani" to the Company.
The subsidiary alliances created the princely states of the Hindu maharajas and the Muslim nawabs. The border dispute between Nepal and British India, which sharpened afterhad caused the Anglo-Nepalese War of —16 and brought the defeated Gurkhas under British influence.
InBerar was annexed, and the state of Oudh was added two years later. For practical purposes, the Company was the government of much of India. Causes of the Indian Rebellion of The Indian Rebellion of occurred as the result of an accumulation of factors over time, rather than any single event.
The sepoys were Indian soldiers who were recruited into the Company's army. Just before the rebellion, there were oversepoys in the army, compared to about 50, British.
The forces were divided into three presidency armies: BombayMadrasand Bengal. The Bengal Army recruited higher castessuch as Rajputs and Bhumiharmostly from the Awadh and Bihar regions, and even restricted the enlistment of lower castes in In contrast, the Madras Army and Bombay Army were "more localized, caste-neutral armies" that "did not prefer high-caste men".
Since the sepoys from Bengal — many of whom had fought against the Company in the Battles of Plassey and Buxar — were now suspect in British eyes, Hastings recruited farther west from the high-caste rural Rajputs and Bhumihar of Awadh and Bihar, a practice that continued for the next 75 years.
However, in order to forestall any social friction, the Company also took action to adapt its military practices to the requirements of their religious rituals.
Consequently, these soldiers dined in separate facilities; in addition, overseas service, considered polluting to their caste, was not required of them, and the army soon came officially to recognise Hindu festivals.
As the extent of the East India Company's jurisdiction expanded with victories in wars or annexation, the soldiers were now expected not only to serve in less familiar regions, such as in Burmabut also to make do without the "foreign service" remuneration that had previously been their due.
As noted above, men of the Bengal Army had been exempted from overseas service.
Specifically, they were enlisted only for service in territories to which they could march. Governor-General Lord Dalhousie saw this as an anomaly, since all sepoys of the Madras and Bombay Armies and the six "General Service" battalions of the Bengal Army had accepted an obligation to serve overseas if required.
As a result, the burden of providing contingents for active service in Burma, readily accessible only by sea, and China had fallen disproportionately on the two smaller Presidency Armies.
As signed into effect by Lord CanningDalhousie's successor as Governor-General, the act required only new recruits to the Bengal Army to accept a commitment for general service.
However, serving high-caste sepoys were fearful that it would be eventually extended to them, as well as preventing sons following fathers into an army with a strong tradition of family service. This, as well as the increasing number of European officers in the battalions,  made promotion slow, and many Indian officers did not reach commissioned rank until they were too old to be effective.
To load the rifle, sepoys had to bite the cartridge open to release the powder. At least one Company official pointed out the difficulties this may cause: Company officers became aware of the rumours through reports of an altercation between a high-caste sepoy and a low-caste labourer at Dum Dum.Collection Overview.
