The ever expanding and progressive city of Indore has been on a roll. The city was once again awarded for being the cleanest and along with that, the fast paced development is pushing it towards becoming a rather utopian town.

One such initiative that points in the same direction is the newly launched cab service, that is entirely run by women. Read on to know more about it.

What's the update?

Since the mindset of people in Indore is evolving, women have come to form their own cab operation. The company, under the name Sakha is being run by entirely women and that is indeed a step in the right direction for Indore's diversifying business landscape.

At its core Sakha is a service that aims to help all those in need of a ride. As of now, you can catch a ride with Sakha from Devi Ahilyabai International Station. With a total of three cars in their fleet as of now, they are expecting to bring about a change in habits and mindsets. They are also planning to introduce 12 new cars, bringing the total to 15.

How did this come about?

The women who are employed in the cab service have all been trained in their respective fields. The operational team has been trained in all things managerial, whereas the drivers have been given the experience of vehicle mechanics and all traffic rules.

If you want to avail of a ride from these guys, then all you have to do is pay a visit to their kiosk at the airport and you will be taken home. If you happen to be within the city, you can also call at their number to know about exact pick up points as well as fares.

Knock Knock

For those of you who are looking for a ride from the airport, Sakha is a good option. They offer reasonably priced rides which are a whole lot more convenient than booking a cab though an app based platform. Surely this is something that will bring about a change in businesses around the city.
