Is the Mumbai Local Train Safe for the Women?

Is the Mumbai Local Train Safe for the Women?

More than 70 lakh individuals in Mumbai rely on the local transport alternatives to travel to their destinations daily. Out of this wide range, around 20 lakh are women. An amazing figures out, is not it?


According to the Government Railway Police (GRP) analysis, molestation circumstances have more than doubled, from 8 last year to 19 until Nov this period. Also, circumstances of making lewd reviews at females or using unwanted language have gone up from three to seven this period. Despite having the devices to secure the security of females journeying in local trains through uniformed police, the question is why such circumstances happen on everyday basis?

Although the use of female police at important railway places in the city is a common practice, females traveler at the smaller stations end up having difficulties the most of the time. Lara Dutta(27), who functions as a HR expert, trips by the Harbour variety from Bandra to cotton Green to her workplace.“Security is a major issue especially at small stations where there are no police through the day. I also incredibly believe kids above 15 years should not be allowed to board the female coaches considering the point that youngster circumstances are improving,” she says. Payal seems it is always better to use an unfilled female compartment and board a common one instead.



But the issue does not end with the inadequate police at these railway stations. Some of the most well-known and most heavily-populated applications such as the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) or Victoria Terminus (VT) become dangerous for females delayed at night.



Although most of us think the need for females security is main in local instructs, circumstances of molestation and eve-teasing cannot quit if the railway regulators do not take preemptive action. Nevertheless, a lot can modify if we accept a few activities to keep ourselves secured while journeying in the train.
