The Indian Air Force Act, 1932 (Act No. XIV of 1932)

 Every history starts with the words "The Indian Air Force was officially established by the Indian Air Force Act as notified in the Gazette of India dated 8th October 1932...", but has anyone actually seen the IAF Act of 1932 that was passed by the Indian Legislature in April 1932? To which the Governor General of India gave his assent on 8th April 1932? .. the same act which was subsequently published in the Gazette on 8th October?

Well here it is --- as it was originally introduced and later passed by the Legislature into the "Indian Air Force Act, 1932"

Yes.. its sort of a boring read of interest only to the academics.. but you have to wonder at seeing a copy of the original bill as it would have been seen by the members of the legislature at that time.. and you have to think.. would they have thought in their wildest dreams that the Indian Air Force would be where it is today?
