Increase the number of ladies compartments in local trains coz much more women work now.
With more and more women going out for work everyday and local trains in west bengal catering to innumerable female school teachers, hospital and office staff, domestic helpers, college and university teachers and students besides others, the number of ladies(half) compartments have remained the same, much to the distress of the passengers. They cannot board general bogies because a system of reservation has existed and are often faced with hoodwinks and ungentle remarks from the opposite gender. Exclusive ladies trains during office time cause equal traumatic experiencs to the other gender and elderly. I care because i see that if at least 3 complete bogies are alloted to ladies, there will be no one hanging at risky points or elbowed down mid-journey. If my copassengers share similar experiences please sign the petition to bring an enhancement in women's economy and lifestyle so they dont shy away from working and earning.
