I found this information written in a board in the palace with the title: Mir Farkhunda Ali Khan Nasir ud Daula, Asaf Jah IV
Born 25th April 1794 at Bidar (24th Ramzan 1208 Hijri)
Accession to the gaddi: 23rd May 1829 at Hyderabad (28th Ziquada 1244 Hijri)
Died: 16th May 1857 at Hyderabad (23rd Ramzan 1273 Hijri)
Nasir ud Daula inherited a troubled State. Moreover, several natural calamities, cyclones, epidemics, floods, and drought took their toll. Mounting debts forced him to cede Berar and other border districts of the British. The Nizam soon realized that the earlier revenue systems and treaties had begun to weaken the efficient functioning of the State. With the support and guidance of two brilliant Statesmen, prime ministers Siraj ul Mulk and Mir Turab Ali Khan Salar Jung I, he implemented a system of revenue administration based on the modern and just principles. Nasir ud Daula withdrew the English officers, appointed by his fathers and banned middlemen and contractors. The State was divided in to 16 districts, each under a Taluqdar who was responsible of civil and judicial administration of a district.
Hyderabad was thus steered through a critical time, bringing transparency to the reorganized administrative machinery. The Nizam’s personal quality of humility and kindness were to hasten these reforms.
There was also a growing realization that the world beyond the boundaries of the State was much more enlightened. Hyderabad began to undergo a gradual public awakening and prospered with new schools, commercial centers, churches and bridges.
