Female Taxi Drivers In Sikkim Get Their Own Taxi Stand Thanks To The Police

Updated on 2 April, 2019 at 2:43 pm By

Thanks to the efforts of the Sikkim Police Traffic, a group of women taxi drivers finally got a separate taxi stand of their own at Bansial petrol pump in Gangtok.

Seven licensed women taxi drivers were helped by the police after they were refused their turn-allotment by taxi associations.

As is the case in any city of India, the taxi associations are entirely male-dominated.

ASP Traffic Ongmu Bhutia said that only one lady driver had managed to obtain turn allotment in a different taxi stand.

The senior cop added that the women were not welcomed by the male taxi drivers and were even discouraged. The police took the decision of helping the women because Sikkim is a pro-women state.



The progressive-thinking police force also advised the women drivers to drive safely.

Of course, the ladies were grateful to the police for their assistance.

Having faced a kind of discrimination themselves, the women do not want the same experience for any other female taxi driver.

They said that they’ll encourage women who want to take up driving as profession and help them set a “good example in the society”.
