Gurugram: Women travelling in autos in Gurugram, Haryana, will soon feel safer. The police are taking steps to enhance security by registering all the vehicles operating in Cyber City. They are conducting background checks on the drivers of these cars and issuing identification cards that will be displayed on the cars.
Main Objectives Behind the Major Step
The Gurugram Police recently organised a meeting with various auto unions to prioritise and enhance women's safety. Over 70 auto unions actively participated in this meeting. According to DCP Traffic Virendra Vij, there are approximately 60,000 registered vehicles with the Transport Department. However, the union's claim is that around 20,000 autos are currently in operation on Gurugram's roads. The police are in the process of registering all these autos and collecting details about both the autos and the drivers operating them. The primary aim of this initiative is to bolster women's safety, especially in the Cyber City area.
Women can register themselves through the app.
The Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) mentioned that women in Gurugram can already register themselves using a mobile app designed for their safety. Once registered, in the event of an emergency where women need to call 112, they won't have to disclose their identity because the police will already have their information on record. Additionally, the police are implementing various other measures aimed at enhancing women's safety in the region.
DCP says it might take around two months to collect information about cars and drivers, make updates, and create their ID cards. These ID cards will be like stickers that will be put on every car.
