Gokuldham is also referred to as "Mini India" in the show. The residents of Gokuldham are shown facing many problems and finding solutions for those problems. The show also occasionally highlights social issues. Most of the episodes are based on Jethalal being stuck in a problem and Taarak Mehta, his best friend, whom he calls his "Fire Brigade", rescues him.

External filming for specific scenes has taken place in locations, for example: Gujarat, New Delhi, Goa and in overseas locations such as London, Brussels, Paris, Hong Kong and Singapore.[35][36]

On completing 1000 episodes on 6 November 2012,[37] Asit Kumarr Modi stated that it took eight years to get the show on air:

"Originally, it was a column in a Gujarati magazine, and I bought its rights in 2001. I approached every channel, but the trend of daily soaps had just started, and saas-bahu shows dominated the scene. Whoever I approached said there was no scope for comedy every day. But I had a feeling that one-day comedies, too, would become a daily trend. Finally, in 2008, Taarak Mehta... came on the air."[38]

In February 2015, Joshi, Vakani, and Lodha hosted the red carpet at the 60th Britannia Filmfare Awards to promote the Clean India campaign.[39] From March to June 2020, filming shut down in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown in India.[40] During the same period it was revealed that it was originally planned for two years and might have gone off-air in 2010 itself as per original plan. But viewers' love made it a seamless series.[41] The show started broadcasting its new episodes from 22 July 2020.[42]

By 24 September 2020, the 3000th episodes had been filmed .[43]

The series was also dubbed in Telugu as Tarak Mama Ayyo Rama for ETV Plus[44] and Marathi as Gokuldhamchi Duniyadari for Fakt Marathi.[45]
