The Delhi government will undertake a survey on infrastructural lacunae in Delhi-NCR with a focus on women safety.
New Delhi: The Delhi cabinet on Tuesday cleared a proposal to conduct a survey on infrastructural lacunae in Delhi-NCR with a focus on women safety in public places.
The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
The Delhi government will undertake a survey on infrastructural lacunae in Delhi-NCR with a focus on women safety. The survey will be conducted by 'Safetipin' organisation, which has the specialised skill set and prior experience, the Delhi cabinet said in a statement.
Various key stakeholders -- transport department, municipal corporations, Public Works Department, Delhi Development Authority, Delhi Urban Shelter Improvement Board and educational institutions -- will be actively involved the survey.
The cabinet sought a detailed report on the previous survey, including the list of black spots and how many lights were installed following the survey, the statement said.
To assess the on-ground improvement, Safetipin would conduct a second round of audits. This process involves large-scale data collection of the city's streets and public spaces using two applications - My Safetipin for crowdsourced data and Safetipin Nite to collect night-time pictures of the city.
"At the core of the app is the safety audit. A safety audit is a participatory tool for collecting and assessing information about perceptions of urban safety in public spaces," the statement added.
The audit is based on nine parameters: lighting - level of brightness on the streets, openness - in how many directions can one see, visibility - how visible is one to others, people - how many other pedestrians are around, security - the presence of private security of police, walkpath - the condition of the walkpath and footpath among other factors.
