we have 2 attributes with different attribute code and same attribute name.

attribute code : "cloth_gender" & "gendernew"

both have attribute label : GENDER

both have dropdown values : "Boys" , "Girls"

we are using

Atttribute set : "Cloths"

we added attribute "gendernew" to Cloths attribute set

Initially when uploading the product we assigned product "P1" to one attribute value [Boys] of attribute "gendernew" ,

later we removed that attribute from attribute set & again added new attribute "cloth_gender" to attribute set.

than for "P1" we assigned attribute value [Boys] of attribute "cloth_gender"

Now in the layered navigation, both attributes are displaying.

but we already removed attribute "gendernew" from Attribute set, but still its displaying in layered navigation.
