Time To Think ‘Safe’ Before ‘Smart’, Authorities Work Towards This Goal
Safety is the priority of a well-planned city. Before getting smart, a city must be safe for the residents. Chennai comes out to be the safest city in India, considering the low crime rate and efficient law application, as per a survey by Quality of Living rankings made by Mercer, a global consultancy firm. Moreover, Coimbatore came out to be the safest city in India for women. This is based on a TOI index which is based on the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) in India -2015 report. But, still Indian cities have a long way to go and the concerned authorities are taking necessary steps to create safe cities.
