Dadra and Nagar Haveli
Dadra and Nagar Haveli is a union territory wedged between the states of Maharashtra and Gujarat. The two regions Dadra and Nagar Haveli lie on the West coast, at the mouth of the Daman Ganga River. Both are separated from each other by a few kilometers.
After prolonged skirmishes, the Maratha Government had assigned few villages to the Portuguese as compensation to ensure their friendship. Portuguese ruled this region till their liberation in 1954. After the liberation, Dadra and Nagar Haveli by people, between 1954-1961 the territory functioned almost independently as “Free Dadra and Nagar Haveli Administration”.
It was merged with Union of India in 1961. Since then it is administered as Union Territory to preserve its distinct rich culture and heritage.
Under Chairmanship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently, Union Cabinet approved the setting up of a medical college in Silvassa of Dadar and Nagar Haveli. This will increase the availability of doctors and increase in medical education opportunities.
The construction of this medical college will be done till 2019-20 and in accordance with the guidelines of the Medical Council of India and Central Health and Family Welfare Ministry. The expenditure of this medical college will be done by the Union Territory’s budgetary provision. This medical college will improve health services and the problem of doctors’ deficiency is also the distance. This will encourage students of nearby rural areas to enter the medical field. An amount of Rs. 189 crores has been fixed for its construction. This amount will be Rs 114 crores for the year 2019-20. Whereas for the year 2019-20 this amount will be Rs. 75 crores.
