This Day in History - Operation Vijay

On August 11, 1961 the former Portuguese territories of Dadra and Nagar Haveli were merged to create the Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli. Both the UTs are located on India’s western coast near Gujarat. It was under Operation Vijay that the Military of India captured of Goa, Daman and Diu and Anjediva Islands from the Portuguese. The Portuguese had taken control of Dadra and Nagar Haveli in the year 1783 on the basis of a Friendship Treaty, as a compensation towards damage to a Portuguese warship by the Maratha navy. Later in 1785, the Portuguese purchased Dadra.
