When the fresh proposal comes to the Union Home ministry from state assembly for name change of state, it will prepare a note for the Union cabinet for an amendment to Schedule I of the constitution. Thereafter, a Constitution Amendment Bill will be introduced in Parliament, which has to approve it with a simple majority, before the President gives his assent to it.
The proposal by state assembly to change the name of state sent to the Union Home Ministry can be turned down by Union Home Ministry if it is not satisfied.
Also, Parliament has the power to change the name of a state on its own by passing a bill in the parliament Without the Proposal of the state.
And if parliament wants to change itself the name of any state (using Article 3) by introducing a bill, then prior recommendation of the president is needed to introduce such bill in the parliament. Before making such recommendation President sends that bill to concerned state to reply in a stipulated time.
But state’s view doesn’t matter in this. And once passed in parliament the name of state gets changed.
Finally, the crux is Parliament can make changes in area, boundaries, territory, name of states even if such proposal does not come from the concerned state by using the Article 3 of the constitution.
