The Subsidiary Alliance proved very advantageous for the British:
- The British maintained large armies at the expense of Indian rulers.
- They acquired valuable territories as subsidiary payment. This led to the expansion of the British Empire in India and an increase in its resources.
- The influence of European rivals was excluded from the courts of Indian rulers.
- The British controlled the foreign policy of the subsidiary states.
