The Battle of Kharda took place in 1795 between Nizam and Maratha Confedaracy Madhavrao II, in which Nizam was badly defeated. Governor General John Shore followed the policy of non-intervention despite that Nizam was under his protection. So this led to the loss of trust with British. This was the last battle fought together by all the Maratha chiefs. The Maratha forces contained a fair number of Arab and Afghan mercenaries. Maratha forces consisted of cavalry, including gunners, bowmen, artillery and infantry.
