  Parakram Shah took over the 14 vilages jagir from poet and artist Maularam in the regime of Pradyuman Shah. Maularam got back Jagir and Rs one /-daily allowance from Nepal court after writing praiseworthy poems for Nepal King Ranbahadur Shah and Gaurvanyudhavikramshah. However, in 1810, Local Gurkha officials of Shrinagar rejected the Jagir and allowances of Maularam by reasoning that the ‘Sanad’ was rough (kacchi). Maularam requested with persuasion and got permission from officers for an allowance of half rupee per day. However, Gurkha administration did not pay the same to Maularam. Maulram persuaded the matter with Bakhtawar Singh basnyat. However, perhaps, due to interference of Krishna Nand Khanduri Maularam did not get the jagir and allowance back. (Maularam, Dr Dabral).
           Maularam wrote request letter to Trail about Jagir and allowances to Trail. Maularam could not offer any proof about ‘Sanad’ of Gurkha regime. Maularam wrote letter in 1815-16. Till end of 1816, British officers did not write any letter from Kolkata. Maularam wrote about Jagir and letter in his poems ‘Firangi Amal( Dabral). Later on, British offered Maularam a small portion of land.
