From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Salute states (nearly all the elite, to which the HEIC or the British Crown awarded a gun salute, and in most cases the style "His Highness") as well as the Non-salute states qualify as true Princely States. Political pensioners' former states and Vassal states also qualify as Princely States. Various other categories, such as jagirs, umraos (a vassal-like notion - the word derives from "Amir"), and various essentially tax-collecting types such as taluqas and zamindars, can also qualify as large or substantial estates, depending what the criteria for determining their status are. This does result in greatly differing numbers of 'states' counted in the Indian subcontinent, not all of whom can even be called substantial estates, but a ruling estate which could compete in terms of wealth, power and prestige with the fully acknowledged Indian Princely State is listed below.
