This change is part of BMC’s Cultural Spine Project. Maharashtra Tourism Minister Aditya Thackeray (Aditya thackeray) has praised the move by BMC in a tweet.
He wrote in his tweet – “If you have gone through Dadar, you will see something that will make you feel proud.” The ‘G North’ ward of Beamac is reflecting gender equality with a simple idea. Signs here now also have women.
The red and green signs have been changed from the normal stick figure to the icon wearing a triangular dress. Women of the United Nations also accepted the move. The women of the United Nations tweeted happily at the effort, “This is good news.” Traffic lights are being made gender inclusive in Mumbai ”.

Mumbai resident Nimisha Warrier said in an interaction with ANI, “This BMC’s start is praiseworthy. Now people will start recognizing the power of women. They will also give status to women equal to men in society. This is a good initiative towards women empowerment ”.
