App to ensure safety of IGI travellers

New Delhi: Stepping up security for passengers commuting from Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport to Delhi and NCR, the Delhi police has upped its security and has come up with a security cover for its denizens. Soon, the commuters who will be alighting at the IGI and head to the city or NCR, will be under Delhi police’s security range.

According to sources, once the traveller boards a taxi, an SMS will flash on the mobile phone, which will allegedly read “are you safe”. The move has been taken to ensure the safety and security of women and children. In this new move, the Delhi police will ensure that the commuter reaches her/his destination safely. There will be a QR code installed in black-yellow taxis at IGI.

It is believed that over 2,000 taxi drivers’ background verification has been done by the police so far.

Once the commuter boards the taxi, she/he will be on the police’s radar. After every 10 minutes, an SMS will be sent to ensure that the passenger is travelling safely. If the commuter doesn’t reply for the next 10 minutes, a dedicated PCR van will track the said taxi.
