Nasir ad-Dawlah Mir Farqunda Ali Khan Siddiqi Bayafandi, Asaf Jah IV, Nizam of Hyderabad ( 25 April 1794 – 16 May 1857), was the ruler of Hyderabad state in India from 1829 to 1857. He was the eldest son of Asaf Jah III.


During his reign General C.B. Low took over as the Resident, he received a message from Lord Dalhousie to pay sixty-four lakh rupees which were due to the British for maintaining the Contingent. On 20 May 1853 a new treaty was concluded by which the strength of the Contingent force was settled for its payments.

The Contingent ceased to be a part of the Nizam's Army and became a force kept by the British Government for the benefit of Hyderabad State.[1]
