The Nawab told that he would pay the money if he was allowed to the Jagirs and treasures held by Begums of Oudh. By the treaty of Chanar of 1781 both the Jagirs and treasures were guaranteed to the Begums by the Calcutta Council. Even though Hastings allowed the Nawab of Oudh to take possession of them. The Nawab hasitated to take action against his mother and grandmother but he was forced by Warren Hastings. The British troops were sent to the place of Begums. With the money thus secured, Nawab paid the debts of the Company.
