Abstract: George Thomas was an European mercenary who came to India during the Turmoil Political conditions of 18th century. He earned great reputation among regional powers with his capacity of Military organization. He rose to prominence and tried his fortunes in the Haryana region and successfully occupied large part of Southern Haryana. He crafted an independent State successfully by overpowering Sikh and Maratha influences in this region. He initiated Military reforms by establishing garrison, recruiting local jets, and paying off pension to the family of soldiers in the form of land grants. Although his rule lasted for 5 years but his initiatives created a stable military labour Market in the region.
