Bengaluru Water Board Welcomes First Woman Engineer


Fifty-nine-year-old A V Chandraprabha has created history in the 54-year-old Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB). She assumed office as the first woman engineer of the wastewater management department of the Board on May 2, thanks to the Supreme Court directive slashing consequential seniority in promotions in state government departments for specific categories. However, it will be a short stint as she will retire on May 30 after 37 years of service.
