DURGA ALARMS IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT

INSTALLING Alarms,
INSTILLING Security

THE EVIL
A vast majority of women use the public mode of transport and a staggering percent (almost 90%) of women feel violated or threatened or prone to some mishap.
An alarming, but mostly disheartening number of women are victims to groping, unwarranted touching, chain snatching and eve-teasing.

HOW DURGA FIGHTS EVIL
After careful analysis, DURGA has tactfully designed an ALARM that’ll help women call for help and garner attention whenever they suspect an untoward incident.
These alarms are installed in multiple locations in the bus and when an alarm is raised, the driver is obliged to mandatorily stop and look into the issue, besides which it also amasses the attention of the bystanders through the constant flashing of lights both inside and outside the bus.
This fuels confidence in women as they don’t have to battle the looming danger alone anymore, instilling the much needed sense of security and making the attackers feel less confident and more prone.

HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP FIGHT EVIL
Developed by the brightest minds, these alarms have been fabricated by a renowned Public listed company based in Bangalore priced at Rs 6500 each. DURGA aims at installing these alarms in 500 buses in Phase I.
