Bhubaneswar: Meghna Sahoo from Odisha, who has broken many stereotypes in the past, became the first transgender driver partner with cab aggregator Ola.
The Bengaluru-based ride-hailing firm termed the move a big step for the transgender community.
“One small step for her, a large one for the community. Meet Meghna Sahoo, our first transgender driver partner,” Ola wrote in its official Twitter handle.
Sahoo, who has an MBA in HR and Marketing, currently works as a journalist with a vernacular weekly paper, feels proud for her new endeavour.
“I am now independent and financially strong after driving Ola cab. I am earning around Rs 25,000 to 30,000 per month for eight hours duty,” said Meghna hoping her move will inspire others from the community to take up the job.
