Delhi government forms task force to ensure safety of women in public transport

Delhi government forms task force to ensure safety of women in public transport

The Delhi government announced formation of a task force to ensure the safety of female commuters in public transport.

Earlier, the government has proposed to make travel free for women in buses and Metro trains. The move comes in the wake of a section of public transport experts claiming that there is no link between the proposed free travel scheme and the safety of women commuters.

The task force will conduct both off and on ground review and monitoring of all existing schemes and propose new plans for women safety in Delhi.

The task force will evaluate and monitor women safety related initiatives of the government, including the proposed installation of CCTV cameras and panic buttons, and deployment of marshals in public buses.
