    It is a battle fought between the East India Company force headed by Robert Clive and Siraj-Ud-Daulah (Nawab of Bengal). The rampant misuse by EIC officials of trade privileges infuriated Siraj. The continuing misconduct by EIC against Siraj-Ud-Daulah led to the battle of Plassey in 1757.

    Causes are:-

    • The rampant misuse of the trade privileges given to the British by the Nawab of Bengal
    • Non-payment of tax and duty by the workers of the British East India Company

    Other reasons that supported the coming of this battle were:

    • Fortification of Calcutta by the British without the Nawab’s permission
    • Misleading Nawab on various fronts by British
    • An asylum was provided to Nawab’s enemy Krishna Das
