Real voices of Mumbai

Do you think the state government's new draft policy to give women officers and employees plum assignments will be beneficial?

Sakshi Johari

Yes, I think it will be beneficial. If the women officers and employees are eligible to handle plum assignments, and can do exceptionally well, then yes. It will definitely be beneficial for the women out there.

Assignments should be given on merit and not on gender. What is the point of women fighting for equal rights if in the end they are given undue advantage of being a woman? I think more than the plum assignments, they want an equal consideration while handing them out.

Varsha Patil Entrepreneur
Yes, women empowerment and equal employment opportunities is required on a large scale. Looks like a sensible move.

This will make no difference in  society. Women have already achieved a lot. many years. Tough tasks and assignments were done by women even before.

Mugdha Vaidya
Why not? However, it will be beneficial if they are given proper training to handle heavy assignments. If they have been trained for light profile tasks, then the outcome for handling plum assignments will be negative. It’s not about gender, but about merit.

Niraj Korde
Yes, if women can fly a warplane, be in army and guard the borders of our country, then there is no doubt on them being given tough assignments. I do not think that women lack anything compared to men.
