Their Rule Lasted For About One And A Half Century And During This Period They Had To Face Much Opposition From Several Regions Of India. Numerous Revolts Were Crushed By Them. But These Factors Weakened Their Position In The Long Run. It Is Obvious That So Long As Aurangzeb Remained At The Helm Of Affairs, The Administrative Machinery Was Geared Up In A Nice Manner. But With His Death In 1707, We Find Weak Rulers On The Throne Who Failed To Strengthen Their Position On The Throne. This Factor Afforded A Better Opportunity To The British To Establish Their Supremacy In India.
