It’s Official, ‘Gurgaon’ Is Now ‘Gurugram’

Published on 28 September, 2016 at 3:36 pm By

Haryana’s millennium city Gurgaon on September 27 officially became ‘Gurugram’ as the Union government accepted Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s proposal for the name change.

The name, which has been inspired by the Mahabharata, was initially proposed in 2010 by former MCG commissioner Rajesh Khullar.

A resolution was then passed by the MCG house in 2012 approving the name change.

Haryana CM then announced the change on 12 April 2016 and now the Centre government has accorded its approval within six months.



 

While Gurgaon MP Rao Inderjit Singh welcomed the move, Swaraj Abhiyan founder Yogendra Yadav was not happy about it and said he will continue to call it Gurgaon.

“I wish the BJP government shows the same alacrity in changing the face of the city, by improving the crumbling infrastructure that is plaguing the city. As a person who was born in here, I’ll continue to call it Gurgaon.”

The Haryana government is now keen to launch the Gurugram Development Authority (GDA) before November 1 when a grand celebration has been planned to mark the 50th anniversary of the state.
