The white-and-pink taxis are owned and driven by women, who are trained in self defence.
"It is a taxi service run by women for women, you cannot think of anything more which is safer than this. I hope that more people come forward to take up this service," goodwill ambassador of the project, actor Manju Warrier, was quoted as saying by CNN-IBN.
The taxis, which are monitored through a GPS system, come with panic buttons which can be pressed if police help is needed.
The service has been initiated by Gender Park under the Department of Social Justice.
