Mumbai’s Matunga station on Central Railway (CR), entered the Limca Book of Records as a first all-women station in India.
The station has a staff of 41 women and the unique initiative was taken by CR General Manager DK Sharma in July 2017 with the aim of empowering women.
Accordingly, women staffers were posted across all departments, like 17 ladies for operations and commercial, six Railway Protection Force, eight for ticket checking, two announcers and two conservancy staffers, and five-point persons, totalling 41, under the charge of Station Manager Mamta Kulkarni.
