Mohammad-bin-Tughlak was the eldest son of Gias-ud-din Tughlak. When his father ascended the throne of Delhi in 1320, he was appointed the heir apparent. He undertook two expeditions of Warangal in 1322 and 1323. Although he failed in the first, he was successful in the second. He seated himself on the throne after the death of his father in 1325.
He was perhaps the most learned of the Delhi kings. Two years after his ascending the throne. He had to withdraw the copper coin paying silver coins in exchange. To make up the losses of money in these ways, he raised land tax in 1334.
So discontent spread, the provinces rebelled, and the amirs rose in revolt.
Mohammad Tughlak had vision of universal conquest. He invaded Khurasan in 1328 moblising a huge army of 370000 men with no positive result. Rather he had to spend huge amount for a leap year.
In 1337 Mohammed led an expedition against Ngarkot and made the king submit to him. In 1332-33 a large army was sent to capture Karajal. The first attack was a success, but when the rainy season set in the entire baggage of the army was plundered.
