How did the three Nawabs of Bengal encourage trade?


All the three nawabs of Bengal Murshid Quli Khan, Shuja-ud-din and Alivardi Khan realised the importance of trade and thus, provided all facilities to the local and foreign merchants. They built roads, thanas, etc. They even forced the officials of the East India Company to obey the laws of the land and pay the same customs duty as was paid by local merchants.
