The proposal demanded the renaming of 'Indore', known as the financial capital of Madhya Pradesh, as 'Indur'.
Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) Chairman Ajay Singh Naruka told reporters that BJP corporator of ward number-70, Sudhir Dedge, citing "historical facts", presented a proposal that the original name of Indore was 'Indur'.
"Dedge was asked to present historic documents in support of his claim. Thereafter, appropriate steps would be taken following the discussion on his proposal," Mr Naruka said.
"Indore was the capital of the erstwhile Holkar rulers and the city was described as 'Indur' in many historic documents of that era," he said.
Indore is the largest city in Madhya Pradesh.
