Eastern Railway denied allegations of renaming Howrah-Bolpur Santiniketan Express as Deen Dayal Upadhyay.
On March 31, 2021, Eastern Railway denied the allegation by responding to it on Twitter. The tweet said that in the interest of the safety and security of passengers, the LHB (Linke Hofmann Busch) rack of Howrah-Bolpur Santiketan Express was replaced by the ICF (Integral Coach Factory) rack two and a half years ago. The Howrah branch has already directed that all photographs related to Rabindranath Tagore be returned by the end of the day. It also clarified that the train name was never changed to Deen Dayal Upadhyay.
