Nirman Diwas- Celebrating the Merger of Union Territories DNH & DD

We witnessed Diwali in January! Wanna know how? Well, there was this occasion called ‘Nirman Diwas, which is a celebration of the merger of Union territories of Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu. After Portuguese rule, ‘Dadra and Nagar Haveli’ and ‘Daman and Diu’ were separate Union territories of India until 2019. The merger bill passed by Lok Sabha & Rajya Sabha united them as a single territory effective from 26th Jan 2020. That’s how it started.
