Roshan Dilli - A Campaign To Light Up Public Spaces In Delhi And Make The City Safer For Women

This Kolkata Taxi Driver Has Set A Successful Example For Women Safety

Next time you board a radio taxi in Kolkata, do check out the driver's name. If it is Santosh Yadav, you will know you are in the safest possible hands. This Uber driver turned down bookings and sat the two women down in his taxi for 90 minutes through the dead of a chilly October night last year after they were locked out of their housing colony on Kolkata's southern fringe.

About The Campaign

NDTV in partnership with UBER is launching a sustained campaign 'Roshan Dilli'  to try and raise safety standards in India's capital, New Delhi.

Our focus is to try and improve lighting in public spaces in the city. Lighting is a key factor in shaping women's perceptions of safety

The initiative will provide a platform for all stakeholders to discuss our goal of improving safety standards, to start a conversation about safety of women in the country

It will also highlight various interventions and solutions that help to make women safe and put the spotlight on what more can be done.

The campaign will accentuate the need for Safety to be a shared responsibility

The need for gender sensitization and how law enforcement and civil society through checks and education can try and make women safer

We hope you will join us and help make New Delhi a safer city for women.
