When did the Simon Commission Come to India?

Seven members of Parliament served on the Simon Commission, sometimes known as the Indian Statutory Commission, which was led by Sir John Simon. The group, which did not include any Indian representatives, was appointed to debate India's constitutional issues and offer advice to the government on the country's future legal framework.

Answer - In 1927, the Simon Commission came to India.

A commission headed by Sir John Simon was chosen by the British government in November 1927. To investigate the constitutional reform in Britain's biggest and most important possession, British India, the Commission flew into the country on February 3, 1928.

The political leaders of India were humiliated by the fact that no Indian was a part of the panel established to determine the fate of Indians and made the decision to boycott the commission. 

The Indian Industrial and Commercial Congress, the Hindu Mahasabha, and the Liberal Federation, led by Tej Bahadur Sapru, all backed the motion to boycott the Simon Commission. 

The Muslim League disagreed on the issue when Mohammed Ali Jinnah led the bulk of supporters in a boycott. Sir Muhammad Shall agreed to call a meeting of the Muslim League in Lahore in December 1927 in order to comply with the inquiry. 

At a Muslim League meeting convened by the Jinnah group in Kolkata, it was decided to create a subcommittee that would meet with the Indian National Congress Working Committee and other organizations to develop an Indian constitution.

Summary:

When did the Simon Commission Come to India?

The Simon Commission came to India in 1927. The Simon Commission, sometimes known as the Indian Statutory Commission and headed by Sir John Simon, included seven members of Parliament.
