Kerala: 9 out of 14 districts have women as District Collectors
In Kerala, nine out of 14 districts now have women as District Collectors. Administrative control of the capital district Thiruvananthapuram and neighbouring districts Kollam and Pathanamthitta is secure in the hands of female collectors.
Kottayam, Idukki, Thrissur, Palakkad, Wayanad and Kasaragod are the other districts.
Navjot Khosa, Afsana Perveen, Divya Iyer and P.K.Jayasree are among the eminent officers heading the administration in these districts.
Presence of women in top level administrative positions would help to create a women-friendly outlook in the society.
