On the death of Buzurg Ummid Khan, the Jaujdir of Jaunpur was put in his charge, and his rank became 3,000/3,000, and he was honoured with the gift of a kror of dams. In 1699 he was removed from there. He was made the governor of Allahabad, received, as a reward for his chastisement of Mahabat, a landholder of Jaunpur, the rank of 4000/3500. From this it appears that he became the governor of Allahabad a second time. After the death of Aurangzeb and in the reign of Bahadur Shah he received the title of Khan Jahan 'Izz-ud-Daula Bahadur. There were memorials of him in Aurangabad near the Delhi gate: a lofty building, and opposite to it a bath of exquisite purity; but were later in ruins. The ranks he was awarded were: 3000/3000 in 1694; 4000/3500 in 1705; 5000/3500 in 1706.
