Title: Urged upon the Prime Minister and also the Minister of Home Affairs to give approval to the proposal of Government of West Bengal with regard to renaming of Calcutta and West Bengal as Kolkatta and Bangla respectively.

SHRI LAKSHMAN SETH (TAMLUK): Sir, the Government of West Bengal has made a proposal to re-name West Bengal as `Bangla’ and Calcutta as `Kolkatta’. But it is a matter of astonishment that already a few months have elapsed but the Government of India is not approving this proposal. Already Madras has been re-named as Chennai and Bombay as Mumbai. But the proposal of the Government of West Bengal is not receiving approval of Government of India.

So, I urge upon the Prime Minister and also the Minister of Home Affairs to give approval to the proposal of Government of West Bengal with regard to re-naming of Calcutta and West Bengal as Kolkatta and Bangla respectively.
