The Centre is "actively considering" a long-pending Maharashtra government proposal to change the name of Bombay High Court (HC) to Mumbai High Court.
Union minister for law and justice Ashwani Kumar said here Wednesday: "There is also a proposal to make changes to Madras and Calcutta high courts. It is being actively considered."
Bombay HC is one of a few institutions in the state that continue to carry the old name of the city.
The state government renamed Bombay Mumbai in 1995 and all institutions under it altered names accordingly. Last year, the government approved a Bill changing titles of all laws from Bombay Presidency to Maharashtra or Mumbai.
