Haryana government renamed village Mustafabad in Yamuna Nagar district to Saraswati Nagar. A notification to this effect was issued by Haryana Revenue and Disaster Management Department.
The village is located about 20 kilometers from the district headquarters and officials say an old dried-up riverbed of Saraswati River exists near the village. Revenue records substantiate the claim.
BJP government in 2015 had decided to restore Saraswati creek from Adi Badri (christened as Saraswati Udgam Sthal (point of origin)) to Mustafabad in Yamunanagar district and set up Adi Badri Heritage Board.
In May 2015, aquifers were discovered during the excavation of the alignment of the underground channel of the river at Mugalwali village.
