Answer :

The causes for the Gurkha War were:

(i) Economic Causes- The East India Company wanted to establish shipping industries in India through Nepal. They also wanted to expand their trade to Tibet through Nepal. The government of Nepal did not favour foreign traders.


(ii) Political Causes- The unification of Nepal bothered the English, so they wanted to establish their own political security from rising threats and unification of forces in India and Nepal. The activities of Bhimsen Thapa, which included unification of Maratha and Punjab along with Tibet and Burma also opposed the English rule. Butwal and Syuraj in the Terai region were demanded by Hastings from the Nepal government to prevent the unification of forces but Thapa refused to surrender.
