In yet another step towards women empowerment, Madhya Pradesh Government would soon allow them to work in second and third shifts in factories and other establishments across the state.
“Women will be able to work in second shift in factories and a notification in this regard will be issued within a week,” Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan announced yesterday after inaugurating the Vardhman Textiles Unit at Mandideep near here.
“If needed, even they (women) would be allowed to work in the third shift in the state,” Chouhan said.
At present women are allowed to work in factories only in one shift in the state while in number of other states they are allowed to work in all the shifts.
Chouhan said that his government will continue with its endeavour to empower women and girls in the state
