The Home Ministry had earlier sent back the state's plan to change the name to "Bengal" in English, "Bangla" in Bengali and "Bangal" in Hindi. The Home Ministry had reservations with the three different names.

After this, the state cabinet passed a resolution to change the name of the state to "Bangla" in all languages on September 8 last year.

If the Home Ministry gives a green signal, then West Bengal's name would officially be changed to 'Bangla'.
