During his reign, a British cantonment was established in Hyderabad
and the area was christened after him as Secunderabad. His son
Samsamadaula ( Mir Basheeruddin Ali Khan ) was Defence Adviser to his
brother, Nasir ud Daula, and nephew, Afzal ud daula. But he did not
have any pact with the British for maintaining the contingent. The
state was in a financial mess during his reign.
