Earlier British was planning to make June 3, 1948, as Indian Independence day. The date was even announced by the then British Prime Minister Clement Richard Attlee. Yet after Lord Mount Batten became Viceroy and changed everything. The reason for the change of the date to August 15 was because he believed this was a propitious day for Britain as she and her allies won Second World war defeating Japan on the same day in 1945. And another reason for the declaration of Self-administration to India on a sooner date was that Muhammad Ali Jinnah who had cancer and was about to die. This is widely speculated and believed to be the reason for the rescheduling of Indian Independence.
