Government planning better facilities for working women: Minister  

New Delhi, June 6 (IANS) The government is planning several initiatives to provide better facilities for working women so that they can perform to their full potential, Minister of State in the PMO Jitendra Singh said here on Saturday.

During a visit to the Jasola Working Women’s Hostel near Sarita Vihar, Singh also issued on-the-spot instructions to increase the number of “single occupancy” living rooms and provide air conditioning wherever demanded by the inmates.

The hostel has been set up by the ministry of development of north east region (DoNER) in collaboration with the ministry of women and child development. It is one of the few residential hostels of its kind in Delhi which is meant exclusively for working women.

“To make the place more secure and to ensure free movement of working women even at late night hours, Singh directed the officials of the ministry to take up with civic and electrical authorities the issue of maintaining uninterrupted power supply to the streetlights on the road linking the premises to the nearby metro station,” an official release here said.

He also directed that an in-house transport facility by way of a van or mini-bus may be arranged for the inmates to travel to and from the metro station.
