In what would be a very appreciated move, the Indira Gandhi International Airport (IGIA) has teamed with a private company Sakha to launch all-women cab service in New Delhi. Women safety has become an important aspect of the current generation and even the government is pushing towards the same with initiatives like this. At the IGIA Terminal-3, there will be separate all-women cab service with 20 cabs which can be used by women passengers who are travelling alone during the night time. And yes, the cab drivers will also be trained women.
