Leva Gurjar Patels use Patel, Desai and Amin as their surname. One of the most famous men in Indian history; Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and his brother Vir Vitthalbhai Patel are Leva Gurjar Patels from the village of Karamsad and born in Nadiad. The success of this community is seen worldwide and many are resided in countries all over the world including the U.K, U.S.A, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, South Africa and Fiji as well as other parts of India. But the NRIs that originate from this part of Gujarat have helped to transform Anand and Nadiad into cosmopolitan cities and nearby cities of Vadodara and Ahmedabad have developed substantially as a results of investments and money sent back to their friends and family that still reside there.
