The Robertsganj railway station in Uttar Pradesh has been renamed Sonbhadra, said an official.
The Home Ministry has given its approval for the renaming of the British-era railway station in the Sonbhadra district of UP.
Even though the railway station falls under the district, there is no place in the name of Sonbhadra, so the Robertsganj station has been renamed Sonbhadra.
This is the second time a railway station in UP has been rechristened.
The Mughalsarai railway station was renamed after RSS ideologue Deendayal Upadhyaya last August.
The station, now renamed Sonbhadra, falls under the North-Central zone of the India Railways' Allahabad division.
Among the prominent trains which touch the station are Tata Nagar-Jammu Tawi Express, Triveni Express, and Jharkhand Swarna Jayanti Express among others.
