Vapal Pangunni Menon, also known as V. P. Menon, was an Indian civil servant who played a vital role in the partition of India and the integration of independent India, during the period 1945-1950.
In 1946, he was appointed Political Reforms Commissioner to the British Viceroy Lord Louis Mountbatten.

After the independence of India, Menon became the secretary of the Ministry of the States, headed by Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

Those who are interested in political chronologe, he must read Mr,V.P.Menon s bookspolitical integration of India, Story of the Integration of Indian States and on the partition of India, Transfer of Power.
