The British Indian Empire or British Raj (rāj in Hindi: राज, Urdu: راج, pronounced: /rɑːdʒ/, lit. "reign"[1]) is the name given to the period of British colonial rule in greater South Asia between the 1857 Indian Rebellion against the British East India Company and the 1947 partition of India, when India was ruled directly by the British Crown.[2] The term 'British Raj' can also refer to the dominion itself and even the region under the rule.
