Why does Modi Government planning to merge 2 UT's?

There is no need to be specific about Prime Minister Modi's decisions to make his mark on the regime. He has recently taken another decision to merge the Two Union Territories. The Center has decided to introduce the bill in Parliament. Daman Diu, Dadra Nagar Haveli, will be brought under a single Union Territory.

The centre's argument is quite interesting on this issue, it says both the UTs have separate budgets and different secretariats even though they are just 35 km apart. Dadra and Nagar Haveli has just one district while Daman and Diu have two. The merged UT is likely to be named as Dadra, Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu and its headquarters could be Daman and Diu.

On August 5, the central government had announced the abrogation of the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 and its bifurcation into two UT's.
