    Is New Delhi a very unsafe place for women?


    Have a query about New Delhi city? Searching for information about whether it is unsafe for women? Here, find responses from experts providing details of experience of residents of Delhi, and the steps taken by the government to make it safe.

    It has been decades since I have visited the beautiful city of New Delhi, though my first job itself was in this city.

    Of late, it has acquired a very dubious and awkward name "the rape capital of India".

    Is this really true? Is it so unsafe for women? Are men out there, so brutal? One does hear of rapes of small children from various parts of the country, and it is not restricted to just New Delhi. However, one is also told that such rapes do not get reported in Newspapers published from the South of India.

    What is the Government doing in this regard, and what is really going on? Members who live in New Delhi, or visit that city for whatever purpose, regularly, may please answer these questions and also specifically mention the steps taken by the Central and State Governments, in New Delhi, to make it safer for women.

    Let us not get scared or keep a wrong notion by reading some sensational or sensationalised news. They should only make us more alert and vigilant and take the normal precautions a prudent person should take.

    Crimes happen and can happen anywhere. But that does not mean we should paint every person in that place as criminals or the whole place as not safe. Cities like Delhi have large population. They have the law enforcing agencies. Generally people live peacefully and safe. Just because accidents happen,we do not stop travelling by bus or vehicles. Similarly just by hearing or reading news about certain things happening we need not feel over scared, but be alert, vigilant and take normal precautionary measures to safeguard ourselves.

    Rapes are happening almost over every place in the country. It may be so that comparatively more such heinous crimes may be happening in Northern parts of country and Delhi is one of those places.

    Anyway we have some pervert minds in the society who are more of like animal than human and they are doing these crimes whenever they get a situation like that.

    So number of these crimes will not reduce till these people are there in society.

    Knowledge is power.

    National Crime Bureau as of 2015 says that Madhya Pradesh stands first in rape cases. Jodhpur and New Delhi followed it.
    Delhi being the capital has all eyes on it. Have you ever heard of a case from MP? Did you even thing Jodhpur would be in the list?

    We only focus on what we want to. The capital was at risk. So the risk was exposed. New Delhi isn't unsafe. The world is. But measures like the "safety number", increased public transport like Uber and Ola, increased sex education, etc and never ending NGO supports are trying their best to see rape-less India.
    Lets see how it goes.

    The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.

    No, I do not believe it is generally spread by the social media. Sometimes social media broadcast a news several times and it affects our brain. Rape cases happen in every state and small villages also. Social media should understand its responsibility and should broadcast the news in such a way that it should not create terror in the heart of the people. Not only rape cases, these social media spread the news related to diseases like Dengue, Malaria, etc. These are treatable diseases but due media people afraid and it creates an unhealthy environment. You daily go to road and visit different places. How many rape cases you see with your eyes? Have you seen any rape case?
    Honesty is the best policy.

    It would not be fair to tell that Delhi alone can be attributed to a place of crime. Some other cities can also be ranked as notorious as Delhi in respect of crimes, harassment, murder and rapes of women- folks. It does not mean we should not discourage the bevy of ladies not to start their career in New - Delhi city. However, a few precautionary steps should be taken to make the lives safe for the women - folk.Tips are as follows -
    1) Ladies should ensure that that they are not travelling alone in the remote areas especially in the night so as to remain safe.
    2) Though the the registration no of auto , car or Bus which they might have taken for travelling purpose must be intimated to their close - relatives and such information may be useful in identification of the culprit in case of a mishap.
    3) They should maintain dress - decency while moving out - side.
    4) The mobile being carried in course of journey must contain police - station no or in the event of crisis, they may take the help of help - line.
    5) Less they talk with stranger, the better.
    6) To remain alert during the journey is the vital point and with such cautiousness, they can make journey safe.
    All the cities are surrounded with good and bad elements and so Delhi alone should not be looked into a notorious place.

    In fact, no place is safe and all places are safe. These days electronic media especially 24X7 News channels have no news to telecast. So they exaggerate the things so that people will get attracted. Their TRP ratings will increase. So we should not afraid of staying anywhere. New Delhi is in news more because it is the capital of the country. If you go through the local newspapers and district editions, the unethical happenings will be known. But we tend to read highlights and bold letters.
    In any place either ladies or gents, they should be in their limits and try not to interfere with others or provoke them unnecessarily. Then we need not worry.
    When we are living in a society we should think of the society also. So if we mind our business and not go unnecessarily late nights to unknown places and keeping some self-protection devices like pepper spray in your handbag will take care of you.

    The news and information processed these days are very hard to believe. While some being genuine and most being a fake news to caution and alert people. This simply put us on alert to be careful. Late night loitering is one of the most dangerous habits in cities. One might get robed and even put ourself to jeopardy if we practice this bad habits.

    Crimes which includes Rapes, and Murders are common in India. It's not only about New Delhi. If you take an instance of other news from South India and North East India etc... Crimes are becoming higher and higher in India.

    As the saying goes "Prevention is better than cure", one should prevent themselves by implementing good habits in their life. People who loiter late night in bars, parties etc are most likely to face such unexpected, unfortunate events in their person lives.
