Goa was annexed by India on 19 December 1961. Goa and two other former Portuguese enclaves became the union territory of Goa, Daman and Diu, and Goa was organised into a single district in 1965. On 30 May 1987 Goa attained statehood (while Daman and Diu became a separate union territory), and Goa was reorganised into two districts, North Goa and South Goa.AdministrationAnjali Sehrawat, an officer of the Indian Administrative Service, is the Collector and District Magistrate of South Goa. There are Deputy Collectors and Mamlatdars for each Taluka.The headquarters of the district is Margao.
