Resource: Maharashtra State Archives

From a review of the Maharashtra State Archives in the Fresh From the Archives section on Dissertation Reviews:

"The Maharashtra State Archives primarily contains over 500,000 files relating to the expansion, governance and termination of British colonial rule in the Bombay Presidency. The documents date right back to the seventeenth century and the earliest phase of English East India Company rule in Bombay, ending somewhat abruptly in the immediate postcolonial period."

Also a good resource for archival material on the greater Indian Ocean region.
