Haryana Government decides to rename Gurgaon as Gurugram
13 April 2016 Current Affairs: Haryana Government has decided to rename Gurgaon as Gurugram. State government also has renamed Mewat as Nuh. In this regard, Chief Minister Manohar Lal has approved the proposal to change the names of Gurgaon and Mewat. Decision to change the name of Gurgaon has been taken on the basis of the representations received at several forums. Since ancient times, Gurgaon had been a centre of learning where the princes used to get education and known as Gurugram since the times of Guru Dronacharya. While, Mewat is not a town and in fact it is a geographical and cultural unit spread beyond Haryana in the adjoining States of Uttar Pradesh and Rajasthan. The Headquarters of Mewat district is at Nuh town. The elected representatives and the people of area had been demanding that the name of Mewat be changed as Nuh.
