Some of them are:
- PINK AUTOS – People will see women from our society come forward and grab this opportunity to start women driven autos on the roads of Kolkata. This will be a game changer in the local transport sector and give an alternative to women commuters. A training program will be rolled out and other stakeholders will be roped for this.
- NEW WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS : Opportunities in Jewellery industry, specially junk jewellery to be provided to potential women entrepreneurs . Women Council will organize buyer-seller meets and organize events to promote this.
- PROFESSIONAL COURSE FOR BEAUTICIANS: At present there is no structured course of training facilities in West Bengal. People have to go to other states and countries get certificate or diploma course. Most of the employees in beauty salons and parlours have no basis knowledge of skin care or hair treatment. The women council will propose a certificate/diploma course to the government of West Bengal to establish such training facilities.
