Renaming of roads, villages and localities in Assam will be done as part of “Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav” celebrations.

The Assam government reportedly will soon launch a portal for seeking suggestions from the general public for name changing.

Deputy commissioners of every district will take a call on renaming of any particular road, village or locality based on the suggestions from the public.
