4 railway stations in Uttar Pradesh's Prayagraj get new names

Four Railway Stations in Uttar Pradesh's Prayagraj will now have new names, this move aimed at reviving the identity of the ancient city.

Key Points:

  • Allahabad Junction will now be Prayagraj Junction,  Allahabad Chheoki has been changed to Prayagraj Chheoki, Prayag Ghat has been changed to Prayagraj Sangam and Allahabad City will now be known as Prayagraj Rambag.
  • On 20th February 2020, these names of the stations were changed by the central and the state government.
  • The Central government and Uttar Pradesh government have decided to keep the names of Allahabad Junction, Allahabad Chheoki, Allahabad City,  and Prayagghat stations located in Prayagraj district on the words starting from Prayagraj. This decision would bring back the identity of the ancient city.
  • The Yogi Adityanath government in Uttar Pradesh had changed the names of many railway stations after coming to power.
  • The most important changes incorporated within this were Allahabad - which later changed to Prayagraj and Faizabad - which got Ayodhya as its new name.
