Conclusion: As a country, we are at a very nascent stage of development and therefore need to surpass all kinds of social evils, narrow-mindedness and discrepancies deep rooted in any sphere of life.
Such initiatives are steps to cater women and further improves social issues pertaining to working women. For the upliftment of an Indian woman, working conditions has to be improved as much as the legal scenarios are focused upon. Kerala already has highest literacy rate in India and highest sex ratio among all the Indian states, and by introduction of such initiatives it is further improving the conditions and successfully projects itself as a role model for all other states.
