India began to fight for it's independence with the Salt march led by Mohandas Gandhi on March 12, 1930. After many happenings to Gandhi himself and his followers they were able to gain independence on August 15, 1947. Therefore it took India 17 years to gain it's independence.
Within two years of the end of World War II, India gained its independence from Great Britain through a wide variety of factors. The primary factors were two in number, however. First was the decades-long struggle of Gandhi and other Indian leaders to demonstrate to the British the senselessness of trying to control a nation of people that was ready for independence. Second was the toll that the war had taken on Great Britain, which lacked the resources and perhaps even the will to retain imperial control of such a large, independence-minded region as India.
India gained independance in 1947 from the United Kingdom, for its service during the Second World War. To deal with religious turmoil, they split India in three; India, for the Sihks and Hindus. West Pakistain, which is now Pakistan, for the Muslims. East Pakistan, which is now Bangladesh, also for the Muslims.
