Owned and operated by women entrepreneurs, She-Taxi was selected for the recognition in the 'developmental interventions' category.
The Gender Park, an autonomous institution under the state Social Justice Department, had launched the cab network two years ago with an aim to promote entrepreneurship, self-employment and security among women.  
The She-Taxi initiative was selected for the honour considering it as a unique model and its possibility to replicate in other places.
In a short span of time, the initiative not only addressed the safety and security concerns of women travellers but also contributed to the socio-economic empowerment aspect of women in the state.
