Lord Minto

Lord Minto (1807-13):

Lord Minto succeeded Sir George Barlow in 1807.

He worked as the president of Board of Control before appointing as Governor General.

Charter Act of 1813 was passed during his period.

He decided to follow the policy of non-intervention. But in certain cases he modified his policy.

In 1809 Amir Khan invaded Berar. Though the Berar rejected the Subsidiary Alliance Minto intervened to put an end to the anarcy.

Amir Khan was defeated and peace was maintained.

Lord Minto entered into the treaty of Amritsar with Ranjit Singh in 1809. Sir Charless Metcalf played an important role in this regard.

Minto sent a naval expedition and captured the French colonies of Bourbon and Mauritius.
