India’s all women operated railways stations: Women empowerment on the right track

The Indian Railways has taken some innovative measures in its dedication to women empowerment. The organisation, which is considered as one of the largest employers in the world, has over one lakh female staff and is continuously increasing hiring of female employees. The Indian Railways, in a unique measure, has started deploying all women staff at some railway stations. Matunga in Mumbai became the first such station.

The Matunga Station has all women staff. From stationmaster, ticket collectors to cleaning staff. A team of 30 women undertake all operations of the station.

While Matunga is a suburban station that sees local trains, Gandhinagar in Jaipur became the first main-line station to be “manned” by an all-female staff.
