Renaming Thaltej Metro Station as Udgam School
There are two Metro stations named in the upcoming Ahmedabad - Gandhinagar Metro Link: 1. Thaltej ( the station after Doordarshan Kendra) 2. Thaltej Gam. Considering the nomenclature system of various metros in India and abroad, it is observed that usually they are named after well-known landmarks near the station. For instance in Delhi, there are stations named like AIIMS, INA and IFFCO Chowk. Thus, it is not named after the village or the area but after the familiar landmarks. Now, coming to the point, we see that there are two similar names in our Ahmedabad Metro link – Thaltej and Thaltej Gam. To avoid confusion with similar names of two consecutive stations, we request you to consider naming ‘Thaltej station’ to “Udgam School” station. Since Udgam School is the only prominent landmark around the area, it will be easy for the common passengers to relate to. Once the Metro starts, it will be difficult to change the name- so please act now and help us change the name according to the more obvious landmark.
