History

Malwa India closeup 1823
An 1823 map of Central India. Berasia is depicted as "Burseeah" in the Malwa province

In the early 18th century, Berasia was a small mustajiri (rented estate) under the authority of the Delhi-based Mughal fief-holder Taj Mohammad Khan. It suffered from anarchy and lawlessness due to regular attacks from highwaymen and plunderers. Dost Mohammad Khan, a Mughal soldier-turned-mercenary of Afghan descent, took on the lease of Berasia for an annual payment of 30,000 rupees.[1] He later annexed several neighboring territories and established the Bhopal State.
