When all of Mountbatten’s efforts to keep India united failed, he asked Ismay to chalk out a plan for the transfer of power and the division of the country. It was decided that none of the Indian parties would view it before the plan was finalized.


The plan was finalized in the Governor’s Conference in April 1947, and was then sent to Britain in May where the British Government approved it.
