Modi government to change the name ‘India’; A constitutional amendment will be required 

New Delhi: Will the name India be abandoned? Rumours abound that the central government has decided to drop the name India, which the country has proudly cherished for so long, and adopt the ancient name Bharat.

Although both names appear in Article 1 of the Constitution, India is the official name. The move is to amend this and change it to a single name, Bharat. This strengthened the suspicion that the Parliament session was called for five days from the 18th of this month.

The matter became controversial when the letters sent from the Rashtrapati Bhavan in the name of President Draupadi Murmu, inviting the heads of state to participate in the G-20 summit for a dinner on the 9th of this month, were marked as ‘President of India’. The title ‘India, Mother of Democracy’ appears in the preface of the briefing document for G-20 Summit delegates. The name of the G-20 summit venue is Bharat Mandapam.

The fact that the front formed by 26 opposition parties, including the Congress, has been given the name India suggests that the BJP leadership has decided to implement the name change immediately. The Sangh Parivar has been making this demand for a long time. It is the declared policy of the Narendra Modi government to wipe out the vestiges of British imperial rule.

Constitutional amendment is essential.

According to Article I of the Constitution, “Bharat, known as India, If the Article One Amendment Bill is passed by the Lok Sabha and the Rajya Sabha and approved by the President, the name change will take effect.

Wherever the old name appears, the new name will be added, and new copies of the constitution will have to be issued. The new name should be entered in all international documents that mention the name, including the passport.

The Union Minister dismissed the rumours.

Meanwhile, Union Minister Anurag Thakur has denied rumours of renaming the country. Anurag Thakur, Union Minister, responded that the name change is only a rumour. Union Minister Anurag Thakur’s reaction comes after campaigns to rename the country Bharat sparked widespread criticism and debate.

Although the Centre has clarified the situation, an official document related to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to Indonesia at the President’s invitation has fueled speculation.
