Indian Independence Bill

Description These excerpts give us a gist of the debates held in the British House of commons during the month of July 1947 to work out the various clauses and stipulations governing the proposed transfer of power to the Indians on August 15, 1947 along with the simultaneous division of the country into India and Pakistan. These debates give us an insight into the working of the mind of British lawmakers and the detailed guidelines for transfer of power and division of territories on the basic of demographic composition, religion, language and contiguity. The contents of the debates reflect the seriousness and urgency of the monumental task. These also provide us a glimpse into the culminating days of India's independence and partition.[edit]
