Maharashtra council led by CM Eknath Shinde and Minister Chandrakant Patil resolved to rename Seven Mumbai stations. 

In a bid to better reflect the cultural and historical heritage of Mumbai, authorities have recently moved the resolution of renaming seven local train stations. These changes aim to honor local legends, historical figures, and significant events, providing a deeper connection between the city’s rich past and its present.

The Maharashtra council led by CM Eknath Shinde and Minister Chandrakant Patil resolved to rename seven Mumbai stations, addressing colonial connections. As per reports, the new names will be submitted by the Mahayuti government to the Union government for approval. 

The renaming of the seven stations will go as follows - Currey Road Station will be renamed Lalbaug, Sandhurst Road will be renamed Dongri, Marine Lines will be renamed Mumbadevi, Charni Road will be renamed Girgaon, Cotton Green will be renamed Kalachowki, Dockyard Road will be renamed as Mazgaon, King’s Circle will be renamed as Tirthankar Parswanath. Going by the reports, the renaming of Sandhurst Road will take effect on both the Central Line and the Harbour Line in Mumbai.

This is not the first time that any state government has made way for such changes. Earlier in Mumbai, an iconic station such as Victoria Terminus (VT) was renamed Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus (CSMT), and Elphinstone Road was renamed Prabhadevi. Previously, the Maharashtra government renamed Aurangabad and Osmanabad districts in the Marathwada region to Chhatrapati Sambhajinagar and Dharashiv, respectively.

These renamings are more than mere changes in nomenclature; they represent an effort to reclaim and celebrate Mumbai’s diverse and rich heritage, reinforcing local identity and pride among its residents.
