Solution

  1. The Portuguese established a strong navy. They used to launch sudden attacks on their enemy's territory from the sea and wreck it completely. The Indian rulers could not match the Portuguese in their war tactics. Later when they established their firm control of the Indian Ocean it became necessary for the Indians to get a license from them for sailing on the Indian Ocean.
  2. The Portuguese had become so powerful that even the mighty Mughals and the Sultanates in the south had to buy a license from them. The Portuguese used to deploy seamen from Portugal to India.
  3. In those times, Indian rulers did not maintain a naval force, therefore, Indian rulers found it difficult to fight the strong naval forces of the Portuguese.
  4. The only exception was that of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, who had built his own navy.
