The Union Minister of State for Home Affairs, Shri Hansraj Gangaram Ahir reviewed the developmental projects in Daman & Diu during his recent visit to the Union Territory. During the visit, MoS (Home) Shri Ahir inaugurated the Coastal Police Station at Kadaiya. He directed the officials to expedite work on setting up the Coastal Police Station at Diu. Shri Ahir called upon the UT Administration to fill up the vacancies immediately so that the Coastal Police Station can operate at its full capacity at the earliest.

Shri Ahir also inaugurated a function to commemorate the 56th Liberation Day of Daman & Diu on December 17, 2016. Speaking on the occasion, Shri Ahir said the UT has an immense tourist potential. He hoped the tourism sector will emerge as a major revenue source with the slew of initiatives undertaken by the UT Administration.
Shri Ahir commended the UT Administration for taking the initiative to make Daman & Diu as the first cashless region of the country. Shri Ahir lauded the painstaking efforts of the UT Administrator Shri Praful Patel towards this end. At least 190 teams of trained volunteers visited over 25,000 households spread across the UT to educate their members about the benefits of cashless transactions.
The Government had introduced free wifi services in the Union Territory recently and 3,500 GB data was used by over 32,000 tourists and local people during the last 45 days. This initiative was appreciated by Shri Ahir during his visit. This initiative will help in promoting the Government’s initiative of Digital India and e-transactions. A Staff Recruitment Board has also been constituted recently for bringing transparency in the Administration and to check corrupt practices. In the social development sector, infrastructure in all primary schools is being upgraded under the Jan Bhagidari scheme of the UT Administration.
