Elphinstone Rd station will now be Prabhadevi

Elphinstone Road station will be renamed Prabhadevi and Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus will henceforth be known as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus. The Centre has approved the state government's demand to rename the two city railway stations. After the state issues a notification, the railways can start the process of changing the names. Lord Elphinstone, who was the governor of Bombay from 1853 to 1860, will now make way for the local deity, in tune with the BJP-Sena's outreach to the Marathi manoos.
