On Women's Day, Matunga Rd station gets all-women staff

After Matunga on CR, WR's Matunga Road station to have all women staff from March 8

Another two stations, Phirangipuram in Guntur division and Ramavarapadu in Vijayawada division, will also employ only women by this month-end.

Over the last couple of weeks, small stations like Ajni near Nagpur, Chandragiri near Tirupati and Gandhinagar in Jaipur have been handed over to all-woman staff, who are discharging every duty - from that of station masters to cleaners, from guards to signalling functionaries - without fanfare.

In his address during the International Women's Day celebrations at the Salem divisional office, Divisional Railway Manager Hari Shankar Verma said one of the railway schools within the jurisdiction of the division would also function as an All-Women Railway School. It becomes the first such station in the state and the fourth in the country. "Finding TTEs and RPF staff is not a major issue".

Women will take over Phulwari Sharif railway station in Patna on Thursday, International Women's Day.
