Saiyid Muhammad Reza Khan held the office of Naib Nazim and Naib Diwan of Bengal from 1765 to 1772. This study includes the early life of the Khan, but concentrates particularly upon the years from 1756, when the Khan first held public office, to 1775. There was much greater continuity and overlapping between the British and Mughal administrations than has been supposed. Company servants like Clive seemed to the local public to be simply Mughal grandees in British uniforms and the innovations supposed to have arrived with British rule actually occurred much later. Instead of the British gradually taking over the local administration under the urge to eliminate corruption, there was an administration carried on competently in traditional style by Reza Khan under attack from the East India Company's officers who were not so much concerned with rooting out this alleged corruption in the interest of justice and efficiency as increasing the revenues of the Company and adding the by-products to themselves. There was constant pressure on Reza Khan’s Collectors to produce more money and finally control was taken out of their hands. Reza Khan, with considerable skill, fought a rearguard action for the traditional administration against the plundering system of the early Company’s servants in Bengal; he was finally brought to trial on trumped-up charges but despite all the pressures open to Warren Hastings (who managed Reza Khan’s trial), it was not possible to bring in a verdict of guilty. He was finally reinstated at Murshidabad as Naib Nazim in 1775. Contents 1. Introduction: the twilight of Mughal Bengal 2. The early life of Reza Khan and his first public office in 1756 3.
