The Treaty of Peace Between Japan and India (日本国とインドとの間の平和条約) was a peace treaty signed on June 9, 1952 restoring relations between the two nations.

India, as part of the British Empire, had full diplomatic relations with Japan until end of World War II. After the war Ally Forces occupied Japan and India gained its independence on August 15, 1947. In 1951, the San Francisco Peace Conference was held with Indian Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru refusing to attend the conference,[1] because he considered the provisions of the San Francisco Treaty to be limiting Japanese sovereignty.[2] After the conference, on April 28, 1952, Japan regained their sovereignty with the withdrawal of most occupational forces.
