In the 18th century, the political configuration of India was undergoing some profound changes. While in Delhi, the Mughal Empire continued to rule the roost, several other local and regional states mushroomed all over the Indian peninsula. In the north-west, the Sikhs had transformed into a major force. The Mughal subsidiaries in Awadh, Bengal and Hyderabad too had formed their own dynasties and started to function virtually independent of Delhi. In Maharashtra, the Marathas had formed a regional kingdom whereas the Jats had started ruling in west and east of Delhi. Lastly, the watan jagirs of Rajputs too had become virtual states within the Empire.
