To facilitate workingwomen-facing difficulties in travelling to their workplaces, Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday announced introduction of 'Only Ladies' EMU train services.

Presenting the Railway Budget for 2009-10, she said that these train services would be introduced in Delhi, Chennai and Kolkata suburban routes on the pattern of Mumbai suburban lines.

She said these services would run for the convenience of women passengers during office hours.
