British Raj was a British Crown Colony in the Indian Subcontinent. It gained independence between August 1961 and January 1963. From 1920, British Raj had some devolution and by 1930 it had 95% devolution (only a bit of defence remained at Westminster and due to the Raj being a founder of the UN in 1945, the UK devolved foreign affairs) stemming independence attempts until 1955 (WWII was also a factor of the Raj getting its independence later than in OTL).
