Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has renamed the birthplace of music maestro Tansen. The birthplace, previously known as Behat, will now be called Tansen Nagar.
CM Chouhan made the announcement during the inauguration of developmental projects worth Rs 101 crore, including the Tikautoli Micro-Irrigation project in Behat.
Although Behat village is considered a backward area, people from far and wide come to see the birthplace of music maestro Tansen.

During this event, musicians from all over the country come here to perform.
Addressing the gathered audience, he stated that the state is currently undergoing a phase of development alongside social revolution, aiming to make the people self-reliant and economically empowered.
In this direction, the government has launched the transformative Ladli Behena Yojana. The ceremony was presided over by the Union Minister of Agriculture and Farmers' Welfare, Narendra Singh Tomar.
Additionally, the CM announced the opening of a college in Behat, a fund of one crore rupees for the restoration of the Anjani Mata Temple and technical examination for the rejuvenation of the Chandela Dam in this region.
Chief Minister Chouhan also mentioned expediting the issuance of administrative approval for the Guhisar road in Murar Gram Panchayat, connecting Bijauli, Gunda Hara, and Jignia. He further stated that proposals to develop Bhadawana, Behat, Kashibaba, and Devgarh as tourist destinations have been sent to the central government by the state government, and efforts are being made to obtain approval.
During the event, Chief Minister Chouhan paid floral tribute to the statue of music maestro Tansen.
