Silvassa is the capital of the Indian Union Territory of Dadra and Nagar Haveli. During Portuguese rule, Silvassa was also known as Vila de Paço d'Arcos, after the town of the same name near Lisbon (Paço de Arcos, Oeiras). The city has a large number of factories and industries providing significant government revenue, which allows the city to maintain a low level of taxation. Silvassa has been selected as one of the hundred Indian cities to be developed as a smart city. Until the end of the 19th century, Silvassa was only a small village. The growing importance of Silvassa started in 1885, when the Portuguese Administration decided to transfer the seat of Nagar Haveli to the city.
