Vodafone launches Sakhi Recharge Coupon Yojana for women in Haryana state
The government of Haryana has introduced a new coupon Recharge Scheme by Vodafone (Sakhi). Under the scheme it is certain that women in the state can process their mobile recharge without giving out their mobile phone numbers. This is done with an aim to offer more security and privacy for the women in the state.
Aim of the Sakhi Recharge Coupon Yojana
The scheme aims at providing security for women subscribers. When recharging the mobile phones women don’t have to worry about providing their real phone numbers to the retailer’s outlets.
Why we need?
In present time it is obvious that more number of people are used to using mobile phones and to get it recharged it is certain that they have to share their mobile numbers with the recharge outlet. There are chances that recharge outlet owners can possibly harass women by keeping a note of their mobile phone numbers.
There are also incidences where recharge outlet owners have been known to share these numbers with others. For the local law and order authorities, this certainly is one of the major problems. The government of Haryana state has thus opted to offer a new recharge scheme by Vodafone users such that women users may not have to provide outlet owners with their mobile phone numbers when recharging the mobile.
Who launched the scheme in the state?
The scheme was officially launched by Kavita Jain, who is the Women & Child Development Minister in the state of Haryana. The official scheme was launched by the government in Chandigarh City.
