Centre plans to merge 2 UTs -Daman and Diu, Dadra and Nagar Haveli

The government introduced in the Lok Sabha on Tuesday a Bill to merge two Union Territories -- Daman and Diu, and Dadra and Nagar Haveli into one.

The bill was introduced in the Lok Sabha by Union Minister of State for Home G Kishan Reddy.

The move comes three months after Jammu and Kashmir was divided into two UTs -- Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.

With that, Article 370 of the Indian Constitution was also revoked, that granted special status to Jammu and Kashmir.
