Lucknow: The state government in Uttar Pradesh has received consent from the Union Home Ministry to rename two locations. According to official sources, the Union Home Ministry has agreed to modify the names of a Municipal Council in Gorakhpur and a village in Deoria, both in eastern Uttar Pradesh, in response to recommendations from the state government.
According to an official, the ministry gave ‘no-objection’ certificates for altering the name of the municipal council ‘Mundera Baazar‘ in Gorakhpur district to ‘Chauri-Chaura‘ and that of ‘Telia Afghan‘ village in Deoria district to ‘Telia Shukla.’
In conjunction with the relevant agencies, the home ministry examines name change proposals following existing criteria.
Another official stated that it issued a ‘no-objection’ certificate to change the name of any location after obtaining permission from the Ministry of Railways, the Department of Posts, and the Survey of India.
An executive order is required to change the name of a village, municipality, or city.
The official stated that renaming a state necessitates a constitutional reform with a simple majority in Parliament.
