Mumbai’s Matunga station to have all-women staff from March 8

Matunga Road station will become the second suburban railway station in Mumbai and the first on the Western Railway (WR) to be operated only by women, starting March 8, which is International Women’s Day. A senior railway official said for the first time Shatabdi Express will have all-women ticket checking crew. The women staff will include the station manager, ticket-checking staff, announcers, point persons and personnel from the Railway Protection Force. “We plan to have women staff for all functions at Matunga Road station from March 8,” said Mukul Jain, divisional railway manager, WR. Earlier, WR had been considering making Marine Lines or Bandra station entirely women-operated.

Last year, the Central Railway (CR) had converted Matunga station into an all-women staff station, making it the first suburban station in the country.
