Kolkata:  An all-woman staff will manage the Netaji Bhavan station of the Metro Railway from Thursday to mark the International Women's Day, a Metro spokesperson said.

"We chose Netaji Bhavan (erstwhile Bhawanipur station) as the country's first underground Metro service commenced from this station," she said.
