It is neutralization reaction.

#### Explanation:

Neutralization is an acid-base reaction in which both substances react to form neutral compounds such as salt and water.

$$  In this process acid and base neutralize each other that's why it is  called Neutralization Reaction. For example


$H C l + N a O H \rightarrow N a C l + {H}_{2} O$
