At the Indira Gandhi International Airport here is an exclusive 'Women with wheels,' taxi service that is unique as it is operated by women drivers, for women. The service is an initiative by 'Sakha cabs' and was launched from the international airport from January 10 in a bid to make women feel safer. The cabs are driven by women drivers and the services are also provided to only female commuters. Speaking about the initiative, Arvind Vadera, CEO of Sakha Consulting Wings Pvt Ltd told ANI, "On this concept, we have been working for last 10 years with the name of Sakha cabs, all the women drivers have been trained by our own organisation (Azad foundation). We trained them in driving, self-defence, personality development and English speaking for eight months. Once they completed their training, we gave them employment." He said that 30 to 40 rides are being given by them on a daily basis. Expressing happiness on being part of such a wonderful initiative, Pinki, a woman driver said, "I love driving. I do not care about whether it’s a day time or night. We get love and respect."
