NHAI’s Ambitious Initiative to Empower Women The NHAI, executive body responsible for construction and management of the Highways Network in India, is also committed to women empowerment. Along with the construction of National Highways at an unparalleled pace, a special plan to empower women will also put in place by NHAI. The NHAI is known for its gender-equality initiatives. As part of them, the coming International Women’s day, i.e., 8th March, 100+Toll Plazas, which are administered by NHAI, are going to greet Highways’ commuters in a new and inspiring way. The NHAI is planning to deploy all-women staff in some of the Toll Plazas, which is definitely a praiseworthy move. Initially, at least one Toll Plaza near to cities in every state and union territory will be drawn under this initiative. If this initiative becomes successful, then in the next quarter, every NHAI’s Toll Plaza across India is going to feature all-women Toll Collection Staff working on day shifts. This initiative is planned to augment the Women empowerment efforts and the significance of gender-balanced workforce. It can be considered as a key initiative part centred on women empowerment. By, putting in place an inclusive workforce and gender equality system, many organizations have experienced significant improvement in results. Now, the NHAI is all set to embrace the same to breed apart. At a time, when women empowerment is gaining the traction, the NHAI has come up with this initiative which reinforces the ongoing empowerment process. Apart from this to improve the condition of toll plazas and create a competitive environment, NHAI is also doing a ranking of toll plazas based on various factors directly affecting the highway users such as: ’s Manager tive Sign Boards and general cleanliness
