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

Well-Lit Street In Saket Helps Women Feel Safe, Thanks To Roshan Dilli

The key to a truly safe night-time environment is to shield lighting on dark spots, leading to less crimes and a greater sense of security. To achive the same in Delhi’s Saket District Centre, Uber and NDTV Roshan Dilli Campaign flagged the issue of lack of adequate lighting in the area. Within a month of NDTV flagging the issue, 9 poles in the region received street lights and the difference at the location is evident, helping women in the area feel safer.

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.
