THIRD ROUND TABLE CONFERENCE


THIRD ROUND TABLE CONFERENCE

The third and last session assembled on November 17, 1932. Only forty-six delegates attended since most of the main political figures of India were not present.

The Labour Party from Britain and the Indian National Congress refused to attend.

The conference was ended on 25 December 1932.

It was decided to set up a federal legislature in India consisting of elected representatives of British India and of the representatives of the state to be nominated by the respective rulers.

As a result of these conferences, the British Government issued a White Paper.

On the basis of this paper, a new constitution of India came into being which was approved by both of the Houses of the Parliament.
