Britain's exit from India and a peaceful transition of power was supposed to take place gradually over a period of 5 years but it was shrunk to 4 months by Lord Mountbatten. It was his negotiations which saw the deadline for the withdrawal of British troops move forward from June 1948 to August 1947. Mind you, the withdrawal of British troops is not the same as full transition of power.
