From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This category is about people from British India who were conferred British knighthoods prior to 1947, when it was partitioned into the independent nations of India and Pakistan. An Indian knight was a male indigenous British subject of a country under the British Raj before 1947, who was appointed a Knight Grand Cross / Knight Grand Commander or Knight Commander of an honour in the British honours system, or who was appointed a Knight Bachelor.

The 1946 Birthday Honours was the very last to confer knighthoods on Indian subjects of the King.
