Indian Independence Act 1947

The Act received the royal assent on 18 July 1947, and Pakistan came into being on 15 August at the same time as Indian independence. However, due to viceroy Lord Mountbatten's need to be in New Delhi for the transfer of power, Pakistan celebrated its formation a day ahead on 14 August 1947 to enable him to attend both events.

The legislation was formulated by the government of Prime Minister Clement Attlee and the Governor General of India Lord Mountbatten , after representatives of the Indian National Congress the Muslim League , and the Sikh  community

 came to an agreement with the Viceroy of India , Lord Mountbatten of Burma, on what has come to be known as the 

3 June Plan

 or 

Mountbatten Plan
