There will be over 30 women staffers at Matunga station which will include 7 ticket collectors, 11 booking clerks, 5 personnel of the railway police force, 2 chief booking supervisors, 2 announcers, 5 points persons and 1 station manager. Several of these have already been posted at the station.

D.K.Sharma, General Manager of Central Railway, is deemed to be the man behind the exemplary move. According to him, if operations at Matunga station go well, then the model will be implemented at more stations in the network.



Mumbai Mirror quotes Sharma saying,

It is about empowering women. Some of our passenger reservation centres and even ticketing systems for suburban trains are entirely handled excellently by women, so it was decided that an entire station should be handed over to them.

First in the city, Matunga station is India’s second station to be managed by an all-women staff. Shyam Nagar metro station of Jaipur is the nation’s first station to be operated by women.
