The Gazette of India and Calcutta Gazette were official publications of the Government of India, and Government of Bengal respectively, and similar in function to the London Gazette. They contained a lot of information about both Europeans and native Indians, including military matters.

The following may be downloaded as pdfs from DSpace at West Bengal State Central Library

I have copied the following from the catalogue. I have not downloaded any of them.

Hopefully the underlying URLs have copied, otherwise you will need to search in the catalogue. (Edit: a few open as External links, but most do not0

Where two results came up, I have copied both. I’m unaware of whether they are the same file duplicated, or different copies of the same editions. I apologise if I have classified any of the years incorrectly.

Cheers

Maureen

Maureene stunning work, simply stunning work, and a lot of effort in presenting it so well and accessibly, though I think there is a technical hitch I can't get the links to work

I thought the underlying URLs would copy, and I can access 5 of the above, but the rest unfortunately can't be accessed from the page above. Why five work, and the others don't is a puzzle.

If you are interested and want to read the Gazettes, you will need to search in the catalogue of DSpace at West Bengal State Central Library

Edit: I have now replaced the original links and added URLs

I have now replaced all the URLs which were in the original post, so they should all work now.

These are links to pdf downloads

There are also editions of the Gazette of India to read online on the Digital Library of India website.
