Malabar Hill may soon be Ramnagari!

The same proposal was tabled before BMC in 2013

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Improvement Committee Chairman, Dilip Lande, has issued a Notice Of Motion to rename the iconic Malabar Hill as Ramnagari.

Malabar Hill is the upmarket VIP residential neighbourhood in the SoBo (south-Mumbai) locality. The name Malabar Hill was given by the British. “The area is a religious place for Hindus and has some very ancient temples. It is stated that Lord Ram stayed there while on his way to rescue Sita.

Though the area is known as Malabar Hill from the British era, before that it was used by pirates as a lookout for ships, before returning to the area to hide. These pirates were called Malabaris at the time, because of which the area earned the name Malabar Hill,” said Lande.

Meanwhile, a Notice of Motion will be tabled before the BMC general body for approval. After it gets the nod it will be tabled before BMC Commissioner Ajoy Mehta for the final approval.

In 2013 Lande had introduced the same proposal which was placed on the civic general body's agenda, however, it could not be discussed.
