Poona Pact:

1. British had accepted Dr. Ambedkar’s demand of separate electorates for Dalits but Gandhi thought that would not integrate the Dalits into the society.

2. Gandhi began a fast unto death against the separate electorates so Ambedkar had to agree and the Poona Pact of September 1932 was declared.

3. It gave the Depressed Classes reserved seats in the provincial and central legislative councils but not any separate electorates.
