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.
