The process to re­name a street, mar­ket or pub­lic gar­den be­gins with a pro­posal from a lo­cal coun­cil­lor, MLA or NGO

If a pri­vate in­di­vid­ual seeks a name change, an elected rep­re­sen­ta­tive can push it for­ward

If the pro­posal deals with renaming roads, it is re­ferred to the Prab­hat Com­mit­tee. For gar­dens or mar­kets, the pro­posal is re­ferred to the gar­dens com­mit­tee

From there, it goes to the ward con­cerned, and ward of­fi­cials and civic engi­neers in­spect the area and en­sure the pro­posed name does not vi­o­late norms. Th­ese norms in­clude not renaming streets if the ex­ist­ing name is an In­dian one

Af­ter the in­spec­tion, a draft let­ter is made. This is open to rec­om­men­da­tions and ob­jec­tions dur­ing the civic meet­ing

The pro­posal is then passed on
