The decision to rename the railway station was taken at a meeting of the state cabinet, chaired by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Adityanath.
Briefing newspersons, UP government spokesman and minister Siddharth Nath Singh said that after the cabinet nod, a proposal to rename the railway station will now be sent to the Union Ministry of Railways.
Mughalsarai is one of the busiest stations of the Eastern Railway.
Earlier in April, the Yogi Adityanath government had decided to name the Agra airport after Upadhyay.
