Committees and Commissions in Pre-Independence India (1836-1947) (4 Volumes)
The Commissions in the British administration have been known as Royal Commissions and had their origin in the functioning of the King during the beginning of the second millennium. The institution of Royal Commission was given a new boost by the Whig Party in the early thirties that led to the appointment of many Royal Commissions in India by the time the nineteenth century was to come to an end. It is very significant, therefore, that included in these volumes are the Commissions and Committees starting with the thirties of the nineteenth century. Reports were prepared by Commissions and Committees of the British Indian Government to factilitate the continuance of the British rule in this country with the help of assessment of the ticklish issues in key areas of administration. The Material provided about the Commissions are Committees is quite useful and even comprehensive. It provides the name of the Chairman/Presidents and the Members of a particular Commission or Committee, the necessary details of its appointment, the Terms of Reference, the list of contents (chapter, Sections, etc.) and, at the end, the all important Recommendations. It is hoped that contemporary researchers would make a positive use of these reports.
