Mumbai: Mumbai's iconic railway station, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus has been rechristened with addition of an honorific 'Maharaj' after 'Shivaji' in its old name.

The British-era landmark, which was Victoria Terminus before it was named after the Maratha warrior king a couple of decades back, will now be known as "Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, Mumbai."

The Central Railway (CR) issued a notification to this effect on June 27.

The CR, however, made it clear that the code initials of the station will remain as they were in the past – CSTM.

Clarification by Ministry of Railways regarding Media News about New changes from 1st July, 2017

The News in circulation about new changes by Railways from 1st July, 2017 is incorrect. 

It has been noticed that a news item is in circulation in various social media platforms, WhatsAPP Groups, and some websites which mentions that Indian Railways is introducing several changes and new facilities with effect from 1st July, 2017. This news is totally incorrect and baseless. A section of media has also published this news without verifying it from the authorized sources of the Indian Railway system. This has created a lot of confusion in the minds of the rail users. In this context, Ministry of Railways would like to clarify following : -

1. There are as such no new changes being introduced from 1st July, 2017; the only new thing is that Railways, like other departments,is rolling out GST w.e.f 1st July, 2017.(separate press release on GST is available)
