About Gandhidham

It is also a major industrial centre of the state. Gandhidham was founded in 1950 to accommodate refugees from Sindh, Pakistan after India's independence and partition. The city has been developed by CIDCO (City & Industrial Development Corporation of Maharashtra) since 1987. It is situated on the western coast of India, near the border with Pakistan at Jamnagar District and Diu District in Union Territory of Daman & Diu; it lies south-west across Gulf Of Kutch from Karachi, capital city of Sindh province in present day Pakistan.[1] Gandhidham was declared as an international seaport on 12 February 2013 by Government Of Gujarat.[2] The name "Gandhi" refers to Mahatma Gandhi who led Indian Independence Movement against British rule .[3][4][5] The word "dham" means 'place' or 'land'. Thus Gandhidham literally means Land/Place/Country associated with Mahatma Gandhi.[6][7].
