India’s first all-women automobile workshop in Jaipur, run by Mahindra and Mahindra, has completed one year of successful operations. The workshop is powered by a team of nine women in roles such as technicians, service advisors, drivers, part managers and security guards.

It was inaugurated on International Girl Child Day last year by Padma Shri, Arjuna Awardee and current MLA Krishna Pooniaas.
