Correct Option is Indian councils Act of 1861

Features of the Indian Councils Act of 1861 1. After the great revolt of 1857, the British Government felt the necessity of seeking the cooperation of the Indians in the administration of their country. 2. It made a beginning of representative institutions by associating Indians with the law-making process. It thus provided that the viceroy should nominate some Indians as non-official members of his expanded council. In 1862, Lord Canning, the then viceroy, nominated three Indians to his legislative council—the Raja of Benaras, the Maharaja of Patiala and Sir Dinkar Rao.
