Nikita isn’t the only female operator, in fact there are 50 women that are currently going through serious and difficult training in order to also be train operators as well.

According to the NMRC officials, all of these operators went through a four-month training period which involved station control, crowd control, revenue management before letting them have a chance in operating a virtual simulator.Their training is being taken care of by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) staff, including Meenakshi Bhoj, one of the two first female drivers of DMRC.
