The Year 1757 can be considered an Important year because of the Events like Battle of Plassey & The Beginning of Third Anglo-French War in India or Third Carnatic war.
Victory at Battle of Plassey put British in considerably commanding position in Bengal & later on victory in Carnatic made them undisputed claimant on India’s trade among all European powers as French Defeat at the hands of British was a great set back for French.
With these two events There was huge turnaround for British in India & it certainly became a reason for so many visible changes which are being discussed here.
Here We Can conclude that it was a sudden change of Fortunes for British Just after 1757 & later on resulted in British gaining full political & Economic control over India.
