In recent times, the town has become greener, with new lakes, check dams and deep bore artesian wells that provide fresh water all year round. New health centres, playing fields, parks and temples also add to the affluent lifestyle, giving Madhaparians the longest lifespan in India, with an average of 69 years.
The first community moved into the village around 1576 and has grown ever since. The Village was not harshly affected by the 2001 Gujarat Earthquake that had caused severe damage in the region.
Much of the architectural design and construction of the housing in Madhapar is unique in comparison to many houses constructed in India and Gujarat. Construct and design the layout of the newly developed housings in Madhapar, in which the construction of these newly developed housing soon spread through the entire village and through many other villages in Kutch and Gujarat.
The money is flowing in from all around the world but mainly from the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Africa and the Gulf countries, due in a large part to the non-resident Indians who have emigrated from the village during the last fifty years, who bring money and business to the village.
As of recently many internet cafes and communication outlets have been opened, further allowing for growth and prosperity. The growing affluence has meant second home ownership is considerably growing at a rapid pace. As a result land prices have been also increasing rapidly, especially farmland which is in increased demand.
During the late 60's and early 70's many Madhaparians emigrated to the UK and East Africa to form large communities in their respective countries. In 1968, Kutch Madhapar Karyalay was formed in London. Through its activities and gatherings the KMK managed to keep the UK Madhapar community together and the organisation continues to thrive today.
