The  Portuguese occupied  Dadra and  Nagar  Haveli between  1783  and 1785 and ruled it till its liberation in 1954. The regime was marked by rapacity and corruption on the part of  Government and its officials,  exploitation of the local  Tribal  Population by a  handful  Sahukars  (money lenders)  and total indifference to the welfare of the people.  About  170  years of  Portuguese rule was brought to an end on  2  August  1954  by the volunteers of  Goa parties acting in close cooperation with the local inhabitants.  After its liberation,  the administration of the territory was carried on by an  Administrator with an Advisor to advise him on all administrative matters and soon steps were taken to associate the local people in the administration by the creation of  Varistha Panchayat and Group Panchayat.          

On  12th June  1961,  the  Varistha  Panchayat unanimously passed a resolution for integration with the  Indian  Union.  On  11.08.1961,  the territory became nationally united by the  Dadra and  Nagar  Haveli  Act  1961  (No.35  of 1961) passed by the Parliament. Consequently, the free Dadra & Nagar Haveli Administration was succeeded by a formal statutory Administration headed by an  Administrator,  Dadra and  Nagar  Haveli comprising of  72  villages and one town Statutory and 5 Census Town from a single district and single taluka as Union Territory. The union territory was merged with the neighbouring union territory of Daman and Diu to form the new union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu on January 26, 2020. The territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli then became one of the three districts of the new union territory, as the Dadra and Nagar Haveli District.

Directorate of Education – Circular for Centrally Sponsored Scheme of National Talent Search Exam (NTSE) has been implemented by the UT Administration of Dadra & Nagar Haveli and Daman & Diu through NCER.

Dadra Nagar Haveli, endowed with nature’s munificence, it’s a land of spell-binding beauty. Green forests, winding rivers, unimaginable waterfronts, gentle gurgle of streams, distant dotting mountain ranges, a gorgeous kaleidoscope of flora and fauna. Owing to its serenity and quaint sylvan surroundings, this district is a heaven for those who hunt around for a tranquil holiday.

In order to keep the English at bay and to enlist their support against the Mughals, the Marathas made friends with the Portuguese and signed a treaty in 1779. According to this historic treaty of friendship, the Maratha-Peshwa agreed that the Portuguese will be allowed to collect revenue from Dadra and Nagar Haveli which consisted of 72 villages, then known as parganas in compensation for their loss of a warship called “Santanaâ” which had earlier been captured by the Marathas but not surrendered to the Portuguese in spite of their many entreaties. These territories were earlier ruled by the Koli chiefs who were defeated by the Hindu kings of Jawhar and Ramnagar. The Marathas conquered and annexed these territories to their kingdom.

The area of Dadra  Nagar Haveli spread over 491.00 sq.kms landlocked between Gujarat in North and Maharashtra in South was liberated from Portuguese Rulers by people themselves on 2nd August 1954.The union territory was merged with the neighbouring union territory of Daman and Diu to form the new union territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli and Daman and Diu on January 26, 2020. The territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli then became one of the three districts of the new union territory, as the Dadra and Nagar Haveli District.
