Ms U.H. Lakshmi is the “first” woman in Vizag in a remarkable way. She has made history by becoming the first woman goods train guard in Waltair Division.

She assumed charge by taking her first trip from the Marshalling Yard here to Rayagada in Odisha. Ms. Lakshmi had initially joined in 2011 as a trains clerk in Waltair Division. This was a position given to her on compassionate grounds after the death of her husband.

She then qualified for the post of goods guard after passing the departmental examination and later underwent training at the Zonal Railway Institute at Sini in Jharkhand from November, 2015.

Yo! Vizag salutes this lady for the accomplishment as both a woman as well as a working professional.
