Bangalore is Bengaluru; 11 cities too revert to local names

Bengaluru: IT city Bangalore will now officially be known as Bengaluru. 12 of Karnataka’s towns will officially be known by their local names, decision coming on the 69th anniversary of the state formation. The late U R Ananthamurthy was the foremost proponent of reverting to popular Kannada moniker. The Karnataka government had mooted the proposal in 2006. Thus Mysore is Mysuru, Mangalore-Mangaluru, Belgaum-Belagavi, Gulbarga-Kalaburagi, Hubli-Hubballi, Shimago-Shivamogga, Bellary-Ballari, Chickmagalur-Chikkamagaluru, Bijapur-Vijapura, Hospet-Hosapete and Tumkur-Tumakuru. However the University and IIM will retain their earlier names.
