In the book The Constitutional History of India<-i><-b> the author has made the necessarily concentrated attention on these matters which appeared to be of special significance as bearing on the evolution of self-government. After the earlier periods administrative and judicial details have, therefore, been passed over.The Indian Civil Service, however, brought with it British political ideas and made English the official language of the higher funations of government. The result was inevitable, with steadily increasing strength the Indian intelligentsia has demanded the fulfilment of self-government in form of British parliamentary institutions.The vital change betweenthe Act of 1935 and 1919 is thus formerly attested; if it was possible to fit the changes then made as amendments into the substance of the old system that was out of the question with the Act of 1935.The new arrangements are obviously suited only for a brief transitional period. It is hoped that the necessary delimitation of constituencies under the Act of 1935 and the investigations of final conditions will be carried out in time to permit in inaugurating provincial autonomy being Part III of the Act into operation in 1937. In the changed conditions there was hardly any chance of Members of the Indian Civil Service attaining governorships and as such there was a further decline in the attractiveness of a service which has conferred great benefits on India but which inevitably must lose authority under the new regime.
