Carnatic. share of the revenues. The Nawab willingly agreed to the modifications proposed.

On 3rd August 1819 Azeem-ood-Dowlah died. Azeem Jah his son was informed that as the Treaty of 1801 did not stipulate that the rank and dignity of Nawab of the Carnatic should be hereditary in the family of Azeem-ood-Dowlah, his succession depended on the pleasure of the Supreme Government. Azeem Jah was however recognised. It was not considered advisable to conclude any new engagement with him. The resolution to continue to him the dignities and benefits enjoyed by his father under the Treaty of 1801, and his cheerful acceptance of these at the hands of the British Government, were held to constitute a confirmation of the Treaty preferable, considering the relative positions of the parties, to the formal conclusion of precise stipulations.

Azeem Jah died on 12th November 1825. His infant son Mahomed Ghouse was recognised as his successor under the guardianship of his uncle, Azeem Jah. He died without issue on 7th October 1855, and the succession was claimed by Azeem Jah. But as the Treaty of 1801 recognised no hereditary right, and was a purely personal Treaty with Azeem-ood-Dowlah; and as the successions in 1819 and 1825 had been by express permission of the British Government, and conveyed no right or pledge; and as in the absence of all obligation to continue the succession to the titular dignity, there were grave reasons of expediency against it, Government declared that the title, privileges, and immunities of the family were at an end. The family was liberally provided for, a pension of a lakh and a half of Rupees and the position of the first native nobleman of Madras being assigned to Azeem Jah.
