Sir Stafford Cripps, a senior British politician, was sent to India in 1942 by the British government to propose a constitutional framework for India's post-war political structure. The Cripps Mission aimed to secure Indian support for the British war effort and to address India's demand for self-government.

The Cripps Mission proposed the idea of a Dominion status for India, which meant granting India a significant degree of autonomy and self-governance within the British Commonwealth. The plan suggested that India would have the freedom to determine its own future and adopt its constitution, while still remaining a part of the Commonwealth.
