This is because Gandhi had been nominated for the sixth time in 1948  (he had also been nominated in 1947 and was even expected to win, but the unfolding political situation of India and Pakistan, led the committee to erroneously believe that he had changed his stance on non-violence and therefore 3 of the 5 members voted against him) but was assassinated on 30 January 1948, two days before the closing date for that year’s Nobel Peace Prize nominations.

On November 18, 1948, the Norwegian Nobel Committee decided to make no award that year on the grounds that “there was no suitable living candidate”. This was meant as a tribute to Mahatma Gandhi.
