How does the subsidiary alliance system prove advantageous for the British?

Asked by Topperlearning User 10th October 2016, 10:34 AM
Answered by Expert

The Subsidiary Alliance proved very advantageous for the British:

  1. The British maintained large armies at the expense of Indian rulers.
  2. They acquired valuable territories as subsidiary payment. This led to the expansion of the British Empire in India and an increase in its resources.
  3. The influence of European rivals was excluded from the courts of Indian rulers.
  4. The British controlled the foreign policy of the subsidiary states.
