Jahangir has allowed British (East India Company) to set up a trading post in India.
In 1612, Sir Thomas Roe Visited the court of Mughal Emperor Nuruddin Salim Jahangir to arrange for a commercial treaty that would give the East India Company exclusive rights to reside and build factories in Surat and other areas. In return, the company offered to provide the Emperor with goods and rarities from the European market. This mission was highly successful as Jahangir sent the following latter -
"Upon which assurance of your royal love I have given my general command to all the kingdoms and ports of my dominions to receive all the merchants of the English nation as the subjects of my friend; that in what place soever they choose to live, they may have free liberty without any restraint; and at what port soever they shall arrive, that neither Portugal nor any other shall dare to molest their quiet; and in what city soever they shall have residence, I have commanded all my governors and captains to give them freedom answerable to their own desires; to sell, buy, and to transport into their country at their pleasure. For confirmation of our love and friendship, I desire your Majesty to command your merchants to bring in their ships of all sorts of rarities and rich goods fit for my palace; and that you be pleased to send me your royal letters by every opportunity, that I may rejoice in your health and prosperous affairs; that our friendship may be interchanged and eternal."
The company benefited a lot from the imperial patronage and soon expanded its commercial trading operations in Goa, Chittagong and Bombay, eclipsing the Portuguese Estado da Índia.
