With a view to empower the women workforce in Railways and to develop their morale and self-confidence, the South Central Railway has taken the initiative to make the Begumpet Railway Station an ‘All Women Station’ from March 8, coinciding with International Women’s Day.
Across the zone, three stations will thus have women staff to handle all the day to day activities including train operations, ticketing, security and other relevant duties. Apart from Begumpet in the Secunderabad division, the Chandragiri railway station in Guntakal Division, where women have already taken over, and Phirangipuram railway station on Guntur Division will also be ‘All Women Stations’.
Begumpet railway station, one of the busiest stations on the division, SCR is planning to deploy eight women Commercial Clerks, four Enquiry Cum Reservation Clerks, six Constables and one Sub-Inspector of Railway Protection Force to handle the day to day operations and to provide smooth and hassle free service to passengers.
At Chandragiri railway station, the women staff comprises four Assistant Station Masters and three Points Women. During the course of inspection of Chandragiri station on Tuesday, Vinod Kumar Yadav, General Manager, SCR appreciated the staff for rendering their duties with full dedication and commitment.
At Phirangipuram railway station, there will be 11 women staff including three Assistant Station Masters, six Points Women and two Railway Protection Force Constables.

An all-women railway station being launched at Phirangipuram shortly will be a big step in addressing gender equality in the biggest public sector organisation in the country.
The railway station on the Guntur-Narsaraopet line would be handed over to an all-women crew – from the station master to the signalling staff to the ticket-checking employees.
Only the third-of-its-kind railway station in the country after Jaipur’s Gandhi Nagar and Mumbai’s Matunga, the all-women station is set to create history.
the Indian Railways are for empowerment of women. By handing over a railway station to women, we are showing the potential of women to function in diverse fields,” Divisional Railway Manager, Guntur, V.G Bhooma, told The Hindu on Thursday.
Ms. Bhooma launched a sanitary napkin vending machine and incinerator on Platform No. 1 on the premises of the railway station here. Users need to drop in a ₹5 coin in the machine.
Focus areas
The DRM said such machines would be installed on all the platforms, and, in the days to come, in all the railway stations in the Guntur division.
Safety and security of women passengers and employees have been high on the priority list of the DRM, who has taken charge at a crucial stage when projects such as the Nadikudi-Srikalahasti line, and electrification of the Guntur-Bibinagar and Guntur-Nandyal lines are going on. The DRM had gone on surprise checks to stations during odd hours and pulled up errant staff several times.
