Women have something to cheer about thanks to new announcements specifically for them in Railway minister Suresh Prabhu's second Rail Budget presented on Thursday.
The minister announced a 33% sub-quota for women in all reserved categories on trains. In addition, within all coaches, middle bays will be reserved for women to enhance security.
Prabhu said an all-India 24X7 helpline will be set up specifically for women.
For women with kids, Minister Prabhu said he will introduce a children's menu as well as baby food and hot milk at railway stations. New mothers will have 'baby boards' where they can change diapers with ease.
