BRO INDUCTS A LARGE NUMBER OF WOMEN AT KEY POSTS

Context:

The Border Roads Organization (BRO) has over the years also included a large number of women in its work, right from officers to the level of commercial pilot license holders. Over the last 6 decades, in a steady manner, the BRO has increased the number of women employed in various roles and duties of road construction.

Women Inducted in BRO:

  • GREF CEO EE (Civ) Ms Vaishali S Hiwase took over the rebuilding of 83 Construction Company on 28 April 2021, employed on an important Indo-China highway linking Munisairi-Bughdiar-Milam, in an area full of difficulties and challenges. The lady officer has taken control and is leading the charge by performing careful duties.
  • The BRO made history again on 30 August 2021 when Major Aaina of Project Shivalik took up the case as Officer Commanding, 75 RCC in Pipalkoti in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. She is the first Indian Army Engineer Officer to command a road construction company. Apart from this, all three platoon commanders under her, Captain Anjana, AEE (Civ) Ms Bawana Joshi and AEE (Civ) Ms Vishnumaya K are lady officers and they have together created a first-ever women RCC. Border Roads plans to make four such all women-led RCCs, two each in North Eastern and Western Sectors.
