Women’s Safety has been BJP Government prime concern. On the 1st of January this year Delhi Police launched an application called ‘Himmat’ which receives distress signals from registered women users of mobile phones and facilitates physical presence of police in 5-7 minutes. MHA has initiated steps to set up a Nationwide Emergency Response System to respond to the needs of women in distress across the country. Department of Telecommunications has already allocated Emergency Number “112” for this system.
According to a statement released by the Ministry of Railways, the MoS said in the written reply: “Policing on Railways being a state subject, prevention of crime, registration of cases, their investigation and maintenance of law and order in Railway premises as well as on running trains are the statutory responsibility of the state governments, which they discharge through the Government Railway Police (GRP).”
