Women drivers in Snap-E: Snap-E Cabs, an app-based electric vehicle (EV) fleet service, has unveiled plans to augment its workforce with an influx of women cab drivers. The company aims to onboard approximately 100 women drivers in the coming months, with an initial batch of 30 women set to undergo training.

This training initiative receives support from the UK-India 'Accelerating Smart Power and Renewable Energy in India' (ASPIRE) programme.
