NAGPUR: After the Oshiwara railway station named was changed to Ram Mandir Road, based on the Hindu temple; the state government may now rename Elphinstone Road railway station as Prabhadevi, after the name of an old temple in its vicinity.
Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis proposed to rename Elphinstone railway station in the legislative assembly which has been unanimously passed by the lower house. While proposing, CM Fadnavis mentioned that Shiv Sena demanded long back to change the name of Elphinstone Road railway station.
Apart from renaming the Elphinstone Road, CM has also proposed
renaming of two other places, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus railway station to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus and Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport. Now the proposals will be sent to Government of India for final nod for the name change.
The station is currently named after John Elphinstone, 13th Lord Elphinstone who was the governor of Bombay during British Era from 1853 to 1860. And the Prabhadevi temple which is situated in the vicinity was built about 300 years ago and is significant to the city's history.
The new station is coming up between Goregaon and Jogeshwari stations, which may give some relief to commuters travelling on the western line. It will be the 37th station on western line suburban network.
Sena minister Diwakar Raote and MP Rahul Shewale had demanded to change the name of the Elphinstone Road station to Prabhadevi.

Fast commissioning of almost complete BVI-BCT 5th line is required along with speeding up the construction of 6th line, rather than the renaming of stations.
