From 1764 onwards the East India Company came into official contact with Awadh, with its influence secured in the Banaras region and indirectly in Gorakhpur. The Company pursued both political and commercial agenda in North India has been argued that the Company’s
expansion into the plains of Northern India was inspired by a political agenda, not by the aim of extending the ‘true economic frontier’ of trade and investment.' British commercial aims in Awadh were not very significant in the initial phase but they came to a dominant role in securing goods for the ‘investment’ of the Company in Bengal.
