Hansot is a village in Bharuch district, Gujarat, India, used to be called as "Hansnagri" during the British Era is situated about 15 miles (24 km) south west of Bharuch on the south bank of the Narmada River.[1] The village and the surrounding taluka were acquired by the British in 1775, returned to the local princely rulers in 1783 and finally incorporated into the Broach district of the Bombay Presidency in 1803.[1]

Hansot was once a small village known as Hansnagari. Soon, it grew into a town. Now it stands as a Taluka with a population of about fifteen thousand of which six thousand are Muslims.

It has modern amenities including Electricity, Telephone, Bus Station, Primary and Higher Secondary Schools, Hospitals, libraries, etc. It has two main communities - Muslims and Hindus.

Farming is the main occupation and a large number of people migrate to find jobs. Since Narmada river is near, Hansot is also famous for its Fish in Bharuch District.

It is located around 20 km from where the Narmada river merges with the Arabian sea. It is the largest Village between Surat and Ankleshwar. Ankleshwar is located 20 km. West from Hansot (Ankleshwar is Asia's largest industrial estate, and one of 190 industrial complexes in Gujarat's "Golden Corridor." The Golden Corridor, so called because of the money brought by rapid development, is an industrial belt running from Vapi at the southern end of Gujarat to Mahesana, about 270 miles to the North). Surat city is 51 km. West from Hansot.

Hansot is also a Taluka consisting of 52 villages. Taluka means Jurisdiction. So, several areas come under Hansot Taluka.[2]
