Why should we use gained IN (A)? I think get is suitable in the sentence.

Here the time is mentioned (49 years ago). So, the sentence should be in past tense not in present perfect tense.

"Has gained independence" is correct because that independence is still there. It is not just a past thing that happened and we are not enjoying it in present. Its now also an independent Country.

Manu said: (Oct 7, 2015)  
Just simple rule is that - with past participle (49 years ago here) always come simple past (as we use perfect tense for the event occurred in immediate past).

Why not should it be "got an independence" instead of gained?
