Omnibus operator Parveen Travels has taken a new initiative to safeguard women’s rights. The company launched a campaign – Respect Women for Life – on Tuesday.
The bus operator will now recruit employees only after verifying their background. Buses will have driver details displayed. There will be provision for GPS tracking of all vehicles, CCTV surveillance and preferential seating for women. The company will also recruit and train women.
Writer Salma was the chief guest at the launch of the campaign. “Women safety is the responsibility of society as a whole. It is a great initiative from a private company like Parveen Travels which has taken up a big responsibility to show how much they value and respect women. Times have changed as more and more women are well educated, working at important companies and travel more,” she said while speaking at the launch.
