Sugauli Agreement

To rejoice the Rajah on a point close to his heart, the British Government is ready to restore the Terai which was ceded to it by the Treaty of Rajah, to say that all the countries of Terai are between the Coosah and Gunduck rivers, such as those brought to Rajah before the late disagreement; with the exception of disputed lands in the Tirhoot and Sarun Zillahs and with the exception of areas that may arise on both sides of the border after review by the commissioners concerned; with the exception of lands which, after being found by the British government after terais`s transfer to the government, could have been ceded by the British government. In the event that the Rajahs wish to retain the lands of such specific owners, they can be exchanged for others, and it must be made clear that, despite the considerable extent of land in the Zillah of Tirhoot, which has long been the subject of disputes, in 1812 of Christ, in accordance with the year 1869 of Bikjeet, is to be taken and abandoned all the rest , that is, the liquidation and negotiations, as they took place on that date, apply in this case and are found. In fact, this treaty of Suguali was for the East India company and Nepal had to suffer a serious loss of its territory. Thus, in December 1816, an after-the-fact agreement was reached, under which Nepal received all the lowlands (Terai) from Mechi in the east to Mahakali in the west. As a result, compensation for two rupee lakhs has ceased to continue. A soil measure has also been proposed to establish the boundary between the two states. The British government is also ready to restore the terai between the Gunduk and Rapti rivers, that is, from the Gunduk River to the western borders of goruckpore`s Zillah, with Bootwul and Sheeraj, as they encounter Nipal before the disagreements, entirely, with the exception of the controversial terai locations, and such a quantity of land that can be considered for the new frontier. As a result, I have accepted the conditions you have set, and I have thus attached an instrument of unification that may be satisfactory to you. In addition, the document you submitted indicates that it should be restored, with the exception of the controversial lands and the part of the country, as the commissioners on both sides believe that this should be done for the purpose of border colonization; and with the exception of land which, after the transfer of the Terai to the honorary society, could have been transferred by it to the identified owners. My friend, all these things are in your hands, and as it has also been written that my friendship and satisfaction with certain articles of the Treaty of Segowlee that have put me hard to the test and which could be transferred, I am sure that you have in your heart the elimination of what may lead to my distress. and that you will act in a way that is consistent with the advantage of that state and the increase in friendly relations between the two governments.
