Making Delhi safer

Delhi has an area of 1483 Sq. kms and a population of 1.9 Crore, and there are 75169 police men including 5356 women cops . So how can Delhi be made safer ?

So there are 50.68 policemen for each square KM. To me, this appears to be a good number per Sq. km.

Delhi has 149 police stations .

So , if we need to make Delhi secure . We might not need to add more police force just focus on deployment .

There are 617 PCR vans , but out of them 74 are off duty or dysfunctional . So, effective number of PCR vans are 543 . So ,  one Van for every 2.4 KM ( 2.7 KM , if we take out the dysfunctional vans  ) …

So, in a real sense , the Delhi state is not insecure for want of more force , but needs a more ‘effective force’.. I believe, the police personnel are so grossly involved in ‘making money’ , and getting ‘lucrative postings’ and then trying to make good the investment  , that they are not interested in security of the residents in Delhi at all. They are just ‘reactive’ and not a ‘proactive’ police .

I would recommend cutting the police force by 50 % , and increasing the salaries by 50 %,  and getting tough on corruption within  the force would make the things change . Also, we need ‘surveillance’ for politicians and the Delhi police need not provide security to them ,  and their ‘party workers’ should safe guard their leaders and not the police force . Though , the police could train the party workers for the security duty .

Also, each police station should not be having more than 10 police personnel at any point in time including 2 female police personnel

Roping in civil police volunteers with proper back ground check will do the trick of proving more timely action .

Also, FIR’s should be recorded over SMS / online , to avoid the cases of police not registering FIR’s at all . The format for FIR should be available to the public with basis information

Time to think radical to bring about the change

Delhi Gang-rape exposes many facts

Our health minister recently said, that AIIMS is amongst the best in the world when it comes to medical care ! Then why do we need an air ambulance to send the gang-rape victim to Singapore for treatment ?

This gang rape has exposed a few facts ;

1. Girls or police – no one is safe in the capital
2. Government has no experience of handling the ground realities and is arrogant to the core
3. Healthcare facilities in India are not up to the standard.
4. Youth in India are not going to sit back and relax , but will take to the streets to bring out the change – Arab Spring

Rape is a rarest of rare crime ! It needs deterrents like

A ) Castrate the rapist

B) Tattoo the crime on the hand , and on the forehead

C ) In fact, all the criminals should pay for their stay in jails


Yesterday, my cab driver in Delhi asked me the reason for rapes like the one that happened recently.

I told him that three major reasons could be;

1. Vulgarity in MEDIA ( 1/3rd)
2. Drinking ( 1/3rd )
3. Weak laws and weaker law enforcement (1/3rd)

Government is responsible for all , and we are equally to blame as we voted this Government to power & relied blindly on it ….

I could see a curfew like situation in Central Delhi in the name of section 144.Which proves how much the Government is afraid of protests ! Time to realise the power of Janta ( Pubic )  !

Also , one thought that came to my mind . If the citizens cause a loss to the public property, we are supposed to pay fine & compensate for the loss . Then why should the Delhi Government not pay compensation to the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation for shutting down the 9 metro stations for 3 days!
