Highlighting the benefits of the Himmat App, the governor said, that safety of women passenger is a topmost priority as this is quite a vulnerable section when it comes to ensuring safety while travelling.

The revised version of Himmat App intends to safeguard the passengers and attempts to inform that only genuine and verified drivers take the passengers to their destination from Airport and Metro stations. This will thus ensure the passenger's safety and security in last mile connectivity.
