Haryana Government decides to rename Gurgaon as Gurugram

In this regard, Chief Minister Manohar Lal has approved the proposal to change the names of Gurgaon and Mewat.

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.
