Terms and consequences of the ‘Treaty of Allahabad’:

  1. The Treaty of Allahabad was signed between Robert Clive, Shuja-ud-Daulah and Shah Alam II.
  2. Awadh was returned to Shuja-ud-Daulah and his two districts Koran and Allahabad were taken away.
  3. He had to pay a war indemnity of 50 lakh rupees to the Company.
  4. Awadh was given protection by the British. However, the Nawab would have to pay for the cost of the British troops.
  5. Hence, Awadh acted as a buffer state between British-possessed Bengal and the Marathas.
  6. The districts of Koran and Allahabad and an annual pension of 26 lakh rupees were given to Shah Alam II.
  7. In return, Shah Alam II granted Diwani rights of Bengal, Bihar and Orissa to the British.
  8. The Nawab of Bengal was made a puppet with no military or administrative powers.
