These 3 Railway Stations in UP Name Get Changed From Today

Northern Railway has finally announced that 3 Railway Stations in UP’s Pratapgarh District will be changed from today onwards.

Railway Stations

Pratapgarh MP Sangam Lal Gupta has submitted a proposal to the Union Railways Ministry, suggesting the renaming of Pratapgarh Junction and Antu and Vishwanathganj railway stations based on their religious significance. Due to the religious importance of these stations, the Union Home Ministry has approved the change of names of these stations. In 2020, Kaushambhi MP Vinod Sonkar proposed to the government to rename Kunda Harnamganj station as Kripalu Maharaj as it is the birthplace of Jagadguru Kripalu Maharaj.

How Railway Station Name Get Changed

While the Indian Railways manages the stations, the power to rename them rests with the respective state governments. Renaming a railway station falls under the jurisdiction of the state government. These requests are sent to the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), which then makes a decision, with the Ministry of Railways being kept informed throughout the process. It is essential to ensure that the proposed new name does not match that of any existing station in India before the renaming is approved.
