Amritsar Gears Up for Women-Driven E-Rickshaws: RAAHI Project Launched

Amritsar Smart City Ltd. is making strides towards women’s empowerment with the launch of the RAAHI project. This initiative aims to provide 200 pink e-auto rickshaws to deserving women drivers at subsidized rates. The project seeks to create opportunities for women to become financially independent and contribute equally to society.

On July 3rd, 2024, a meeting was held at the Municipal Corporation Amritsar to apprise 35 women drivers of the RAAHI project guidelines. Additional Commissioner Surinder Singh presided over the meeting, emphasizing that these pink e-autos are solely meant for women drivers seeking a livelihood. The program offers substantial subsidies to make e-rickshaw ownership accessible.

However, the meeting also addressed a crucial concern – reports of men driving these pink e-autos, violating the project’s core purpose. Additional Commissioner Singh issued a stern warning to all drivers, stressing the importance of maintaining the project’s integrity. He emphasized that women themselves should be driving the pink e-autos. To ensure compliance, monitoring teams will be formed to identify and address any violations.

The RAAHI project is a commendable initiative promoting gender equality and women’s economic empowerment in Amritsar. By providing subsidized e-rickshaws and fostering women’s entrepreneurship, the project paves the way for a more inclusive and sustainable transportation system in the city.
