To create more employment for women from disadvantaged backgrounds and slums, and encourage them to become self-sufficient, the Urban Community Development Department of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) has offered them the chance to work as pay and park attendants across different multiple areas of the city. They also have the opportunity to run the facilities. The women, who are part of the self-help group Sakhi Sangh, give the parking slips and tickets to vehicle owners and drivers, thus making a living off the fees they earn. They earn Rs 10,000-25,000 per month. The project was launched by the group back in 2016, with women operating one parking facility, and the number has gone up to 30 now. The women are provided with adequate training needed to run the facility. Indra, who is now a proud earning member of her family, told a news agency that she is happy who is able to support her children financially. Till date has been able to pay for her son’s education and is also saving for her daughter’s wedding.
