The Dutch concentrated their trade centers in Madras (now Tamil Nadu), Kerala, Bengal and the Andaman islands. They were defeated by the army of the princely state of Travancore in a battle at Kulachal in August 1741, and this marked the end of the Dutch in India and they had to leave the country in 1845. This paved the way for the British East India Company and the British government to establish their monopoly on India and its politics. And India became a colony of the British.
