World Bank CEO Commutes in Mumbai Local Train On Her First Official Trip To India
World Bank CEO Kristalina Georgieva who is on her first official visit to India and presently in Mumbai, on Tuesday travelled by a Western Railway suburban train to inspect Mumbai’s lifeline.
Georgieva travelled in a second class ladies compartment from Churchgate to Dadar, the busiest terminus on the suburban network.
Besides inspecting the lifeline of country’s financial capital, Georgieva took a short tour of the Churchgate station before boarding a train around 11 in the morning.
According to BusinessToday, Georgieva also visited a school serving low-income households, and children with special needs (part of the Government of India’s Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan program, supported by the Bank) to see how Mumbai’s administrators are striving to ensure that basic services are delivered to all residents of the city, one-third of whom live in slums.
