Mumbai's Elphinstone Road station renamed as Prabhadevi station

Mumbai's Elphinstone Road station on the suburban rail network of the city has been rechristened as Prabhadevi station.

The station named after Lord Elphinstone, the Governor of Bombay Presidency from 1853 to 1860, has been rechristened as Prabhadevi in honour of a local deity of the same name and to erase a "colonial" name.

The new nomenclature came into effect from Wednesday midnight July 18,2018

The decision to change the name of the station was approved by the Maharashtra Assembly on December 16, 2016.
