As crimes against women are on the rise in Mumbai, the Maharashtra government will soon launch ‘Safe City’ project consisting of panic buttons and all-woman police patrol teams.

According to Indian Express, the project has been sanctioned by the Maharashtra government and has been planned in seven other major cities across India under the Nirbhaya Fund. A senior state government official has told the leading daily that the Centre had agreed to release Rs 151 crore for the project in Mumbai.

Under the ‘Safe City’ project, the state government will also expand the existing CCTV surveillance system in Mumbai. This will be linked to the plan of developing victim and abuse tracking web applications. The Central government has asked the state to set up transit dormitories for women and children. The Centre has also asked the state to develop dedicated forensic and cyber crime cells to tackle crime against women.
