There was a challenge for government to relocate and resettle the people whose houses suffered either complete destruction or whose land was to be acquired completely or partially through implementation of Town Planning schemes.  Therefore government has proposed and planned three major relocation sites in three directions at the adjoining outskirt area of the walled city of Bhuj. The names of the three relocation sites are RTO, Mundra and Rawalwadi. All relocation sites are well planned with all basic infrastructural facilities like water supply, sewerage, road, electricity, etc. All sites have residential plots of different sizes ranging from 100 sq.mt. to 200 sq.mt. The provision of reserved land for health centres, primary school, open spaces, commercial centres has also been identified and established.
