Communal Award

Communal Award (16th Aug,1932)

During the first Round Table Conference, Dr. B.R.Ambedkar had demanded separate electorates for the depressed classes.

On 16 August 1932 the British Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald made an announcement, which came to be known as the Communal Award.

According to this award, the depressed classes were considered as a separate community and as such provisions were made for separate electorates for them. Everywhere it was greeted with black flags and the cries of ‘Simon go back’.

On 30 October 1928 Lala Lajpat Rai was seriously injured in the police lathi charge and he passed away after one month.

The report of the Simon Commission was published in May 1930. It was stated that the constitutional experiment with Dyarchy was unsuccessful and In its place the report recommended the establishment of an autonomous government.

Simon Commission’s Report became the basis for enacting the Government of India Act of 1935.
