The British set up their first factories on western coast because Surat in the state of Gujarat had a long coastline. Further, several ships from Persia, Africa and East Asia arrived at Surat for trade purposes. The Western coast of India was well connected to Africa, Middle east Asia and Europe (via the sea route).
Please ask other questions as separate queries.
