Just before the Independence how were the Provinces and States in India organised?

Answer :

Just before Independence in 1947, there were two types of States in India—the Provinces and the Princely states. Provinces were ruled directly by British officials who were appointed by the Viceroy. Princely states were ruled by local, hereditary rulers, who acknowledged sovereignty of the British in return for local autonomy. Examples of the rulers of Princely states are the Nizam of Hyderabad and, Maharaja Han Singh of Jammu and Kashmir.
