India proposed to change the names of its airports according to their respective cities instead of famous Indian personalities and historical figures to lessen confusion among travelers. At the moment, the country has airport names like Veer Savarkar International Airport, Lokpriya Gopinath Bordoloi International Airport and Lok Nayak Jayaprakash Airport that have foreign guests shaking their heads in confusion.

To illustrate, Veer Savarkar in Port Blair was an Indian pro-independence activist, lawyer, politician, poet, writer, and playwright who disapproved of the caste system, and converted Hindus back to Hindu religion. Lokpriya "Loved By All" Gopinath Bordoloi in Guwahati was a Prime Minister and Indian independence activist who followed in the footsteps of Gandhi, becoming well-loved by his people.

Meanwhile, Lok Nayak Jayaprakash was The People's Hero during his time as an Indian independence activist, social reformer, and political leader. These personalities may have significance to Indians, but to hundreds of travelers, it would trouble them to navigate which city or airport for them to go home.

Naming the airport simply to the city it's based from would help ease tourists in remembering their way back to the airport. As for India's famous people in history, the government still wishes to honor them by renaming airport terminals after them.

Union Minister of State for Civil Aviation Jayant Sinha told Indian Express that changing the names to cities is a matter under investigation. "We are evaluating how best to deal with that issue," he said.

Other than shedding light upon the tourists, changing the names would finally solve the issue among the officials in the government who kept proposing alternative names according to who they consider important.

In 2009, the Chandigarh International Airport was plunged into controversies when the Punjab Legislative Assembly wanted to rename it into Shaheed-E-Azam Sardar Bhagat Singh International Airport while the Haryana government wanted a name change six years later to Dr. Mangal Sein International Airport.
