Answer (C) Third Round Table Conference 1932 Proved fruitless as most of the national leaders were in prison. The discussions led to the passing of the Government of India Act, 1935. Constitutional developments were put in place within India proper during the 1920s. Initially, the provinces of British India were granted a measure of responsible government. Further proposals envisaged the eventual establishment of a self-governing Dominion; not dissimilar from those previously established in other parts of the Empire, such as, Canada and Australia. Similar to those countries, a federal framework was passed into law in the Government of India Act of 1935. This allowed for the voluntary accession of the princely states, either in union with adjacent existing provinces of British India or, as separate self- governing units within the federation. In preparation for the new federation, and as a consequence of constitutional developments in those states, Burma and Aden were separated from the Indian Empire as distinct Crown Colonies in 1937.A number of states and protectorates contiguous to those colonies thereafter ceased to be the responsibility of the Government of India and came under the supervision of the local colonial authorities."
