An existing road in Delhi otherwise known as Aurangzeb road begins at the Taj Mansingh hotel near India Gate and joins Safdarjung Road near the official residence of the Prime Minister. This road will soon be known as APJ Abdul Kalam Road as the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) on Friday gave the green signal to rename the Aurangzeb road.
Certain sections in the society have been requesting for changing the name of the road as a tribute to the former President APJ Abdul Kalam who died last month. The matter was taken into regard and was presented before the council which unanimously agreed to rename the road.
