    The battle of plassey played a very significant role in the entry of the British forces in the history of India.In this battle the nawab of bengal lost to the English army lead by Robert Clive. The nawabs army was very large as compared to that of English but his own people betrayed him.More than half of his army did not participate in the battle. It was after this battle that british took over the administration of India in their hands and the nawab of bengal was merely reduced to a puppet king, who had no power or money but had all the responsibilities of the kingdom. The British forces on the other hand enjoyed all the money and power.

    Factors that led to battle of plassey :

    1.Internal conspiracies and fights in the court and among the family of the nawab.

    2.The arrival of Robert clive strengthened the English army.

    3. Courtesan like jagat seth, mir chand, omichand betrayed the nawab.
