Here is how India is celebrating Women's Day

SCR chief public relations officer M Umashankar Kumar said that as part of the exercise the women staff will be deployed to handle all day-to-day activities including train operations ticketing security and other duties. DH file

After Matunga station on the Central Line of the Mumbai suburban network, Matunga Road will become the next station to have an all-women team. Ajni station would have 28 women staff which include 1 station manager, 6 commercial clerks, 4 ticket checkers, 4 luggage porters, 4 cleanliness staff and 9 Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel.

On Thursday, that marks the International Women's Day, Maharashtra's New Amravati is going to join a fast-expanding club of railway stations in India managed only by women.

Marine Lines or Bandra? After Matunga, North Western Railways (NWR) deployed female employees for every single post in Jaipur's Gandhinagar station.

The Western Railway was toying with the idea of launching all-women crews at Marine Lines or Bandra stations.

The idea for an all-woman station was first mooted by CR General Manager D.K Sharma and finally implemented in July 2017.

Pleasantries aside, Colbert pressed God to explain the objective of his unannounced visit. "Oh yeah, I hear thou seekest a sign", the animated God said.

In a first kind initiative, Indian Railways has deployed an all-women ticket checking staff on Mumbai Central- Ahmedabad Shatabdi Express on Thursday.

It has also entered the Limca Book of Records. "Surekha Yadav is likely to operate the train", said SK Jain, divisional railway manger, CR.

"About 20 per cent of SCR staff are women and they have played a stellar role in various capacities as loco pilots, station masters, technical and security personnel".

This is how Indian Railways, which employs 91,000 women, is carving out a new image of gender equality in its enormous operations.
