Explanation:

The Government of India Act of 1919, also known as the Montagu-Chelmsford Reforms, defined the jurisdiction and powers of the central and provincial governments in British India. It introduced a system of dyarchy, which divided the subjects and responsibilities between the central (imperial) government and the provincial governments. This act aimed to grant some degree of autonomy to the provinces while retaining ultimate control with the central government.
