While the British dominated India (-1947), only a small part of Gujarat was under direct British administration (part of Bombay Presidency). The larger part belonged to a number of Princely States (indirect rule).
With India being released into independence, Bombay Presidency was transformed into Bombay State ; the princely states were integrated into Bombay State. In 1960 Bombay State was split into Gujarat and Maharashtra.
