The Telangana government will select 50 women drivers to run the taxis in the city. If the required number is not achieved from the City, women drivers from the districts would be given a chance. The women drivers from districts would be provided accommodations in working women’s hostel.
The government will provide 35 percent subsidy to the drivers of the ‘she taxi’.
To finalise the modalities, a committee has been formed with representatives from the Inspector General, Traffic, the Director/Commissioner, Women & Child Welfare Department, representatives of the commissioners of police of Hyderabad and Cyberabad. The committee would be chaired by Transport Commissioner.
Necessary orders regarding the scheme have been issued by Chief Minister KCR, after the review and recommendations of the committee.
