The History of Sikkim

The Kingdom of Sikkim was founded by the Namgyal dynasty in the 17th century. It was ruled by Buddhist priest-kings known as the Chogyal. It became a princely state of British India in 1890. Following Indian independence, Sikkim continued its protectorate status with the Union of India after 1947, and the Republic of India after 1950. It enjoyed the highest literacy rate and per capita income among Himalayan states. In 1973, anti-royalist riots took place in front of Chogyal’s palace. In 1975, after the Indian Army took over the city of Gangtok, a referendum was held that led to the dissolution of the monarchy and Sikkim joining India as its 22nd state.

Sikkim had been a protectorate of India during British colonial rule since the 19th century. The arrangement was continued after India’s independence through a treaty in 1950, by which India assumed responsibility for communications, defence and foreign affairs, as well as the “territorial integrity” of Sikkim. Sikkim had autonomy in internal affairs. The April 1974 general elections resulted in a victory for the India-friendly Sikkim National Congress under Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The new government sought an increase in civil and political liberties but was suppressed by the Chogyal, Palden Thondup Namgyal.

In May it passed the Government of Sikkim Act, which provided for responsible government and furthering relations with India, and on 4 July 1974, the Parliament adopted a new constitution that provided for the country becoming a state of India, which the Chogyal signed under pressure from India.  Sikkim is considered one of the wealthiest states in India with very low crime rates.
