Gurgaon station is located some distance away in the old city; tucked away from the glamour that is modern Gurugram. No metro station outside the station though other modes of services are available. Curiously, the front side of the building did not have the station name spelled out. I had to go to FOB to get such an image.

The city is officially named Gurugram, I think but the station still reflects the old name.

Agree Agree
Had the name change yielded political votes, the name change would have been done in no time, irrespective of money spend in the same !

PS : HUDA City Centre Metro Station name was changed multiple times dat too within few hours.

True. Lots of station names in UP have been altered just for political purposes with no useful context added for passengers [Prefixing Pratapgarh with 'X' isn't going to stop passengers from calling it from it's actual name].

I didn't knew about HUDA City Center's name change. Guess will read about it.

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...
