It is recorded that Shivaraya did not conquer Janjira and Shivneri in his life.
There are also forts like Chavand, Hudsar, and Jeevdhan which are under Swarajya.
Struggle Face By The Maratha:-

Aurangzeb appointed him as the fort keeper of Shivneri. Of these, Aziz Khan was the mightiest.

38 years later, in 1716, Shahum Maharaj brought the fort under Maratha rule,
and later it was handed over to the Peshwas.
3) AD. After the Peshwa-Angre war of 1755, Nana Saheb Peshwa had imprisoned Tulaji at Shivneri.
Tulagi had enlisted the help of local Koli chiefs for his release.

Ramchandra Mane had informed Raghobadada on Saturday 15th September 1764 in a letter
that it was going to be difficult to quell the revolt.
In the same way that the Mahadev Koli community suddenly gathers and attacks, in the same way, that they took possession of forts like Jeevdhan, Chavand, Hudsar like the guerrillas.

the chieftaincy and reinstated the soldiers at Shivneri.
