Now, a litigation over Kochi's name

kochi-cochin-ernakulamThe Kerala High Court on Monday admitted a public interest litigation contending that no area other than Cochin Corporation, and those included in Kochi taluk, should be called Cochin.

The petitioner submitted that the names Kochi and Cochin confuse those coming from outside the state.

For flight ticket bookings, the name of Kochi is shown as Cochin. The name of railway station is still known as Ernakulam.

The distinction between Kochi, Cochin and Ernakulam are confusing the outsiders, and in the circumstances it requires clarification.

"The area coming within the Cochin Corporation area, other than those included in Kochi taluk, cannot be called Cochin unless the government issues a notification officially changing the name of the Cochin Corporation," the petitioner submitted.

EVERY INSTITUTION / AUTHORITIES STRICTLY ADHERE TO THE USE OF TERM ''COCHIN'' . IT IS HIGH TIME TO CHANGE THE RAILWAY STATIONS as COCHIN CENTRAL and COCHIN TOWN . ''ERNAKULAM IS CONFUSING. COCHIN is more identifiable.

City's name is COCHIN . Ernakulam is only a western part of city of Cochin . Airport , mail railway station and main bus station are to called COCHIN.Even the district's name also has to changed to Cochin .
Besides , COCHIN is poised to become a global city.
