Correct Answer - Option 4 : March 1946

The correct answer is March 1946.

  • Cabinet Mission (1946): 
    • ​The Cabinet Mission came to India in 1946.
    • It was launched by the British Government in March 1946 to discuss plans for the transfer of power from the British Raj to Indian leadership.
    • The members of the mission were:
      • Lord Patrick-Lawrence: The Secretary of State for India.
      • Sir Stafford Cripps: President of the Board of Trade
      • A.V. Alexander: First Lord of the Admiralty.
    • On 22nd January 1946, the decision to send Cabinet Mission was taken and on 19th February 1946, the British PM C.R Attlee Government announced in the House of Lords about the mission and the plan to quit India.
    • The mission made its own proposals, after inconclusive dialogue with the Indian leadership, seeing that the Congress opposed Jinnah's demand for a Pakistan comprising six full provinces.
    • The mission proposed a complicated system for India with three tiers: the provinces, provincial groupings and the centre.
    • The centre's power was to be confined to foreign affairs, defence, currency and communications.
    • The provinces would keep all the other powers and be allowed to establish three groups.
