The names of seven stations will be changed

It was argued that the names of most of the stations on the Mumbai Local network, in English, have a colonial history. Thus, changing them will usher in a new chapter of embracing the country’s independent future. Chandrakant Patil, state parliamentary affairs minister, moved the resolution, which was adopted unanimously.
