As part of the all-India project the ethnographic survey of Dadra and Nagar Haveli was taken up for the first time. Fourteen communities were identified and studied. Dadra and Nagar Haveli was one of the three Portuguese possessions on the borders of south Gujarat and north Maharashtra. It was known as Konkan or Apyantak and ruled by Konkan rulers in the ancient times. It was a part of the Dharampur state under the domination of Maratha Peshwas before it was ceded to the Portuguese. The Portuguese rule of about 170 years apart, Dadra and Nagar Haveli has been part of the mainland. The communities studied under the project include the tribals, peasants, traders and artisans.
