After the Singapore High Commissioner notes a spelling issue, MCD updates the signage.

When the Singapore High Commissioner saw a sign in Delhi that spelled Singapore as “Singapur,” she tweeted, “It is always good to spell check first.”

Thank You For Quick Fix': Singapore Ambassador Reacts After MCD Rectifies  Spelling Error On Delhi Signage

HC Wong, the Singapore High Commissioner to India, used X (formerly known as Twitter) to draw attention to an inaccuracy in signs that had been put up close to the high commission. The name of the high commissioner’s nation was misspelled. The spelling issue was promptly corrected by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), who took immediate notice of the situation.

A spell check should always come first. The photos were posted on X with the comment, “HC Wong,” according to the Singapore High Commissioner’s official account. The New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) and Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) official X accounts were also tagged by him.

In one of the images, signage with Singapore written as “Singapur” is seen. In the second, Wong is pictured basking in the sun while sporting a t-shirt with the word Singapore on it.

The signpost was promptly fixed by the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD). The high commissioner posted a message on X thanking people for the “quick fix” and sharing a photo. “I appreciate the rapid fix. The caption to the photo reads, “HC Wong,” according to the high commissioner.

Both tweets received a large amount of views, and the totals are still rising. Many people even posted their comments on the blog posts themselves.
