The Western States of India

West India (Western India) or the Western region of India consists of the states of Goa, Gujarat, Rajasthan and Maharashtra, along with the Union Territories of Daman and Diu and Dadra and Nagar Haveli. It is relatively highly industrialized, with a large urban population[1]. Most of Western India was part of the Maratha Empire and Mughal Empire before colonization by the British. The regions became part of India on independence, and took their current form after the States Reorganization Act of 1956[2]. The states are roughly bounded by the Thar Desert in the North West, the Vindhya Range in the North and the Arabian Sea in the East. A major portion of Western India shares the Deccan Plateau with South India.

The climate varies between tropical wet, tropical wet and dry, and semi arid. The coastal regions experience little seasonal variations although the temperatures range between 20°C to 38°C. Mumbai and northern Konkan regions experience cooler winters with minimum temperatures hovering around 12 °C. Interior Maharashtra experiences hot summers with maximum temperatures averaging 40°C and mild winters with minimum temperatures averaging about 10°C. Gujarat also has a warm climate with hot summers and cool winters.
