In 1687 he received a robe of honour, a sword and an elephant, and was sent off to Bijapur. After Bijapur was taken in 1688, he received a horse with decorated trappings, the mansab of 2500/2200, the title of Bahadur and the gift of 80 lacs of dams, and was put in charge of Allahabad. After resuming his post as governor of Allahabad in 1692, he was summoned to the Court.
