The railway authorities officially changed the name iconic station Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) to Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus on Wednesday, altthough the code name of the station – CSTM – will remain unchanged.

The commercial department of the Central Railway (CR) issued the order about the change in the name of the biggest station in the city and asked all the authorities concerned to make necessary changes in the alphabetical order of the station names.

The order, however, stated there is no change in the code name of the station which is used for booking tickets and it will remain CSTM only.

In the beginning of last month, the Central government gave its nod to the recommendations, which were unanimously passed through a resolution by the Maharashtra Assembly during its winter session in December.

The Shiv Sena demanded addition of Maharaj to CST as mark of respect to the Maratha king.

The Assembly resolution had recommended adding Maharaj in the name of Chhatrapti Shivaji International Airport (CSIA) too.
