Women have now taken to the driver’s seat and have started delivery of food items. There has been a surge in the number of women who are applying to be delivery partners in big metros and even in smaller cities. Those who don’t know to ride a two wheeler are opting for delivery via bicycle.
Some women have even quit their desk jobs and have opted for this digitally mediated work due to the flexibility and better pay parity. While it has opened new opportunities for women, safety remains a large concern. However the benefit of being financially independent, meeting with people, getting familiar with the city and flexible timings make it a sought after job.
