PM Modi recently announced that 3 islands at Andaman & Nicobar will be renamed after Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. 

What Is It?

To pay tribute to the 75th hoisting ceremony of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose back in 1943, PM Modi has renamed 3 islands at the Andaman & Nicobar islands with his name. The Ross Island will be called as Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Dweep, the Havelock Island will be called Swaraj Dweep and the Neil Island will be called Shaheed Dweep. 

During the WWII, the Japanese had captured Andaman & Nicobar Islands, but Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose had come along with his Azad Hind Fauj.

What Else?

These islands are famous tourist spots in the country and along with being renamed, PM Modi has also inaugurated a few development projects on the islands that will help boost the tourism and activity around the islands. Along with this, PM Modi has also revealed an esteemed university at the islands is being built and will be named after Bose.
