Though the notification of rename approval was issued a month ago, the official ceremony took place on Saturday, 3 p.m.

Founded in 1948, Pune University has been one of the premier universities of India. It has received excellent ratings by the accreditation authorities of India for its overall performance. The Wiki page for University has already been renamed, while the official website is yet to reflect the change.

There have been a lot of debates and discussions going on throughout the city as well as the state regarding the name change since past month. This sudden change is a difficult one for many to digest. Whats your take on this??
