Moreover, the career of Ram Shastri, who provided alongwith Nana Phadnavis a judicial system devolved from the executive is entirely a post Panipat phenomenon.

His power, however, had already grown in the s, when he managed to make substantial inroads into a north India that had been weakened by Afghan attacks.
