One of the most remarkable achievements has been the inclusion of Porbandar in the list of historical cities chosen for infrastructure development under Jawaharlal Nehru Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM).

Shri Modhwadia, along with Shri Ahmed Patel, had taken up the matter with UPA Chairperson Smt Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and then Union Urban Development Minister S. Jaipal Reddy.
