History Dadra and Nagar Haveli is a Union Territory, constricted between the states of Gujarat and Maharashtra in Western India. The historical account of these territories state that the lands were governed by Koli chiefs from the 11th to the mid-13th century. Later, they were defeated by the Hindu kings of Jawhar and Ramnagar. In the year 1783, the Portuguese gained Dadra from the Maratha empire and established their rule. The Portuguese rule lasted until 1954 and in 1961, the territories became a part of India. Finally, India signed a treaty with Portugal on 31st December, 1974 to recognise India's sovereignty over the region.
