As Kochi Metro turns 'five', it is a proud achievement for Kudumbashree as well. 17June 2022 marked the fifth anniversary of the launch of the Kochi Metro service. The Kochi Metro service was launched five years before on 17 June 2017 with an unprecedented achievement, as it has the reputation of being the largest crew of women to be employed by any metro. Kudumbashree was also responsible for that achievement.
Kudumbashree NHG members or Kudumbashree family members have been performing their duties of ticketing, customer facilitation, housekeeping and gardening in the best possible manner for the last five years at Kochi Metro. It has also been able to provide various employment opportunities for transgender people as well. The activities of Kochi Metro are coordinated through Kudumbashree Facility Management Centre. At present 613 persons are doing various jobs in Kochi Metro through Kudumbashree Facility Management Centre. 9 of them belong to the transgender community. There are 14 male members of the Kudumbashree family working in the multi-task services sector.
Kudumbashree is proud of the successful convergence made with the Kochi Metro Rail Limited (KMRL), which has become a milestone in the history of Kudumbashree itself. Kudumbashree members and family members took this opportunity wholeheartedly. Kudumbashree is grateful to the State Government and KMRL for giving such a great opportunity for Kudumbashree NHG members and their family members.
