British Agreement With India

Article II 1. The Reserve Bank of India opens a new account (`Account 2`) with the Bank of England, on which the balance of the total balance sheet covered by Article 1 is transferred, which remains at the end of the activity at the time of the signing of this agreement. It`s going to be under the viceroy`s. I can explain that the position of the North-West-46 border is somewhat different, because there is a legislative weighting between the views of different minority communities, and it is proposed to hold a referendum to determine the total number of actual voters. It is obvious that this will have to be done very carefully, with the participation of the local government and the central government. Lord Mountbatten (served in March-August 1947) was sent to replace Wavell as viceroy, as Britain was ready to transfer its power over India to a few “responsible” hands by June 1948. Shortly after reaching Delhi, where he met with the leaders of all parties and with his own officials, Mountbatten decided that the situation was too dangerous to wait, if only for this short period. Fearing a forced evacuation of British troops still stationed in India, Mountbatten decided to opt for a partition that would divide Punjab and Bengal, instead of risking further political negotiations as a civil war raged and a new mutiny of Indian troops was imminent. Among India`s leading leaders, Gandhi alone refused to reconcile with partition and asked Mountbatten to offer Jinnah the post of prime minister of a united Indian nation instead of a separate Muslim nation. But Nehru would not agree, nor would his most powerful deputy, Vallabhbhai Jhaverbhai Patel (1875-1950), being both tired of arguing with Jinnah and persevering in the task of leading an independent government of India. More than 560 princely states have reached India until 15 August.

The exceptions were Junagadh, Hyderabad and Jammu and Kashmir. The state of Jammu and Kashmir was on the border of India and Pakistan, but its Hindu leader initially decided to remain independent. After a Pakistani tribal invasion, he returned to India on October 26, 1947 and the state became controversial between India and Pakistan. [13] Junagadh State first joined Pakistan, but faced a revolt by its Hindu population. On November 8, 1947, following a collapse of law and order, the Dewan asked India to take over the administration. On February 20, 1948, India held a referendum in the state where the people voted overwhelmingly in favour of membership of India. Hyderabad State, with the majority of the Hindu population, but Muslim leaders have been subjected to intense unrest and religious violence. India intervened in the state on September 13, 1948, after which the sovereign of the state signed the accession instrument and joined India.
