Baladia Village In Gujarat Among The Richest In Asia

Published on 22 December, 2017 at 6:06 pm By

According to the World Energy Access report released by the International Energy Agency (IEA), 239 million people in India remained without electricity access in 2016, about a quarter of the worldwide total. The report also suggested that India is expected to reach universal electricity access in the early-2020s. It added that progress has also been made on clean cooking, but 830 million people in India still lack access. There is no denying the fact that India has achieved spectacular economic growth over the past three decades that has transformed it into a global economic powerhouse, resulting into improved living conditions of its citizens, but these improvements were not uniformly distributed among India’s diverse population.

The village, situated 20 km from Bhuj, has full connectivity in terms of transport and telecommunication as well as good infrastructure in terms of roads. Moreover, in terms of money, the total value of deposits of 8000 residents of the village, crosses Rs 1200 crore.

What’s more surprising is that almost all the houses in this village are full-fledged bunglows that are seen in posh localities of cities. Moreover, there is no water shortage in this village.

 

This village also has many good hospitals. Baladia also boasts of 24-hours electricity, an independent bus service, numerous CCTV cameras and ATMs, swanky cars, and other facilities that are exclusive to big cities only.

The reason why this village has so much wealth, is attributed to its population that is mostly living abroad. The rich Patel community that moved to Australia, UK and US have been depositing their savings in banks back in their villages. They have worked for the beautification of the village as well.
