Hi! Shweta. Thing is that odisha govt's proposal to central govt is paika rebellion to be the first than 1857. And central government promised odisha government to look into it. I think the final decision not opened from central government. Once you also check it out.

The Union Human Resource Development Minister Prakash Javadekar has announced that Paika rebellion (Paika Bidroha) of 1817 will be named as First War of Independence against British Rule in history books from next academic session. Earlier, 1857 Sepoy Mutiny was regarded as the First War of Indian Independence, but Paika Bidroha predates it.
