Sorry to contradict, but I had always believed that the term 'British India' meant the areas directly administered by Britain (such as the United Provinces), rather than those areas (such as Hyderabad, Kashmir, etc) that were ruled by indigenous monarchs under British protection and with a British 'resident' to advise, and which were collectively known as the Princely States.
