In India, one rape every 40 mins: Study

According to ASSOCHAM officials, the survey covered women in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad, Pune, Dehradun and other cities. The responses of nearly 5,000 women in the age group of 18-45 years were taken. Almost 1,200 women were interviewed in Delhi and NCR regions alone.

Not surprisingly, the study revealed that Delhi topped the list with 92 per cent women respondents complaining that they felt unsafe. While 85 per cent women felt the same in Bangalore, 82 per cent felt unsafe in Kolkata. The figure stood at 18 per cent in Hyderabad.

Only 62 per cent of the respondents perceived better pay package to be a major attraction for working night shifts. Demand by nature of job was the major reason for working in night shifts among all the cities surveyed.

Some of the measures suggested by ASSOCHAM are making it mandatory to install Global Positioning System in cabs and public transport and imparting self-defence training to the women staff.
