Mumbai: Mumbai's famous Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), which witnessed the running of the first train in India, has been renamed. Known as VT or Victoria Terminus, the station will now be known as Mumbai Chhatrapati Shivaji 'Maharaj' Terminus.
The new name is a result of a unanimous resolution passed by the Maharashtra Assembly after the Shiv Sena demanded a change of name. Built in 1887, the station was initially named after Queen Victoria to commemorate her golden jubilee. In 1996, during the first Shiv Sena-Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government, the station became Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus as a tribute to the iconic Maratha king.
The Majestic World-Heritage station seems to be graduating well with the passage of time
Form Bori-BANDAR(1853) to QUEEN(Victoria Terminus-1887) to KING(Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus-1996) to Great-KING (Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus-2017)!
