  British East India Company - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The British East India Company, sometimes referred to as "John Company", was a joint-stock company of investors, which was granted a Royal Charter by Elizabeth I on December 31, 1600, with the intent to favour trade privileges in India.
By 1689, the Company was arguably a "nation" in the Indian mainland, independently administering the vast presidencies of Bengal, Madras and Bombay and possessing a formidable and intimidating military strength.
Despite stiff resistance from the East India lobby in parliament, and from the Company's shareholders, the Act was passed.
