Women security is going to be more strengthened with launching of ‘Raj Mahila Suraksha’ safety-app. Launching under the flagship of Rajasthan Commission for Women (RCW), it shall be first launched in Jaipur followed by other cities of state.
The app is currently under trial and it is expected to be on the floors before 30 June.
After downloading the app in the mobile, in an emergency, a female can shake and tap the mobile thrice and it shall send an alert to the nearest police station, the women's commission and a friend or family member. The facility of mere shaking has been provided because in an emergency, a female might not get chance/ time to dial a number or message to call for help.
GPS facility has been integrated with the app through which exact location of the female shall be sent to all three identities mentioned above.
Besides this, Women’s commission is also going to initiate counselling and self-defence training camps in major higher secondary schools and colleges across Jaipur. Relationship between police and females shall also be made smooth with the help of awareness programmes to aware females about their rights. Basic sections of Indian Penal Code (IPC) on crimes related to eve-teasing and alike activities will be also be taught to females to educate them about the law.
Women’s commission has even asked state government to fix the responsibilities on schools in case if a girl child is maltreated by school bus or auto driver.
This is really a great initiative to ensure the women security. There have been many developments in the last few years in this field which is really appreciable.
