Diu Island Government



Diu Island Government is synonymous with the Central government of India. Diu Island has been recognized as a Union territory of India and is directly governed by the Centre. However, the government of India controls the island with much leniency. The government interference is minimum in the daily affairs of the island state.

The island of Diu is situated in the western part of India along the coast of the Arabian Sea. The dual islands of Daman and Diu had been Portuguese colonies before being liberated in 1961. Previously, these two islands were ruled together along with Goa as a Union Territory. However, Goa was separated from these islands in 1987 and since then the dual islands have stood as separate Union Territories under the Indian government. The government officials in Diu directly work under the aegis of the Central Government. The residents participate in the general elections and send their representatives to the Union Government to voice their opinion.

The government of Diu is playing a key role in improving the infrastructure of the island so that the island is able to achieve its economic stability.
