Indian Independence movement

The British rule began in India in 1757 by the victory of English East India Company(EIC) at the Battle of Plassey and gained control over the country. The EIC controlled India for 100 years before being replaced by the British government in 1857-58 during India's first war for Independence or the 'Indian Mutiny'.

Finally after the all-India revolt through the non-violent,non-cooperation movement, Civil Disobedience movement led by Mahatma Gandhi - the British ended their rule post-winning World War-II.  British Government in early 1947 announced to transfer all powers to the Indians, which led to the partition of India into India and Pakistan after severe violence between Hindus and Muslims. 

On 15 August 1947 at midnight India got independence and was concluded by the Jawahar Lal Nehru speech "Tryst with destiny".
