Accordingly Lord Mountbatten had been given a mandate by the British parliament to transfer the power by June 30, 1948. Meanwhile if he had waited till June 1948, in C Rajagopalachari’s memorable words, there would have been no power left to transfer and Mountbatten thus advanced the date to August 1947.
Furthermore at that time, Mountbatten claimed that by advancing the date, he was ensuring that there will be no bloodshed or riot. He was, of course, to be proven wrong, although he later tried to justify is by saying that “wherever colonial rule has ended, there has been bloodshed and that is the price you pay.”
based on Mountbatten’s inputs the Indian Independence Bill was introduced in
the British House of Commons on July 4, 1947 and passed within a fortnight. It
provided for the end of the British rule in India, on August 15, 1947, and the
establishment of the Dominions of India and Pakistan, which were allowed to
secede from the British Commonwealth.
