Jhansi Railway Station to be Renamed As Laxmibai

UP: Jhansi railway station to be renamed as Laxmibai railway station

The Centre on Tuesday informed the Lok Sabha that Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath-led government has sent a proposal for renaming the Jhansi Railway Station as Veerangana Laxmibai Railway Station.

“The Government of Uttar Pradesh has sent a proposal for renaming “Jhansi Railway Station” as “Veerangana Laxmibai Railway Station” in District-Jhansi,” Minister of State for Home Affairs Nityanand Rai said in a written reply to a question in the Lok Sabha

“As per laid down procedure, the comments/views of agencies concerned have been sought. Further action will be taken after the comments/views are received from all the agencies concerned,” he added.

The Union Home Ministry’s approval is required for the name changing process. The development comes after the Union Home Ministry gave its consent to the change of name of any place or station after taking no-objections from the Ministry of Railways, Department of Posts and Survey of India.

An executive order is required to rename any village, town, city or a station, while amendment of the Constitution with the majority in Parliament is needed for changing the name of a state.
