Requests to change names of roads comes to agencies that have jurisdiction over the space

Once the request is received by the concerned department, it is sent to the general administration department of NDMC

An agenda is put up before the NDMC council, which is a 13-member body headed by the council Chairperson, that takes the decision.

If the resolution is passed, it is sent to the state road naming authority of the urban development department of the Delhi government for approval.

If the decree directs for the changing of the road name, a letter is also sent to the postmaster general of Delhi by the NDMC indicating that a change has been accepted.

Any such changes are approved by a panel of the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), the civic body that has jurisdiction over roads in central Delhi.

Notably, the seat of power in the capital with top government offices and homes includes those of the President and Prime Minister.

Requests are put up before the NDMC council, a 13-member body headed by the chairperson.

According to the rules, renaming requests should take into account history, sentiment and whether a personality needs to be acknowledged in that manner. But the NDMC's rules assert that renaming is an exception.
