The Treaty of Pondicherry was signed in 1754 bringing an end to the Second Carnatic War. It was agreed and signed in the French settlement of Puducherry in French India; the favoured British candidate Mohamed Ali Khan Walajan was recognized as the Nawab of the Carnatic.[1] Despite intending to be a lasting solution, a Third Carnatic War broke out just two years later in 1756.
