In order to promote wildlife, the Noida authority has renamed the Amity University Metro station, one of the two stations on the proposed Noida-Kalindi Kunj line. The station will now be named after the Okhla Bird Sanctuary.

"Changing the name is not a big deal. We have already told DMRC to mention the new name in its detailed project report (DPR)," said CB Singh, deputy chief executive officer, Noida authority. DMRC officials said it was entirely the authority's prerogative to decide name. "We have renamed the station," said an official.

The district forest department feels the move will help in sanctuary's promotion and increase the number of visitors.
