Sudarshan Shah was visionary. The son by Khaneti ji was Surjan Shah died at early age. Dabral assumed death in 1832 (1)

Sudarshan Shah made a will for successor and requested  to Governor General (Delhi) through Major Young  in early time of 1832 (1)  Sudarshan Shah sent letter  again to Governor General through Major Young ij October 1832 .  Sudarshan Shah did not change his decision

Since, Tehri Kingdom was not under British or East India Company, therefore, the will of Sudarshan Shah found valid by Lord Dalhousie in 1854 as Lord Dalhousie in  a letter (1) .
