•    LG chairs 17th Meeting of the Task Force on Women Safety 

•    Issues specific instructions with regard to illumination of dark spot, repair of street lights and filling up of vacancies in Fast Track Courts

The Lt. Governor Shri V.K. Saxena today chaired the 17th Meeting of the Task Force on Women safety in Delhi and issued specific instructions with regards to various agenda items.  At the outset, Shri Saxena emphasized the need of changing social mindset and basic approach of men towards woman, even as steps were taken to mitigate crime against woman.  He underlined the need to undertake a campaign of sensitizing young and adolescent boys through gender workshops and suitably amended curricula.   

In the matter of illumination of dark spots and timely repair/replacement of street lights, the LG took exception to the fact that something as basic as street lighting- its installation, repair and maintenance, which should happen in normal course, was being discussed and decided at his level. Stressing that lighting provision should be incorporated right at the stage of planning flyovers, buildings and plantations etc., he also issued instruction that the works on an integrated web portal for street lights owned by different agencies, currently being developed by IIIT-Delhi be expedited and directed the agencies/departments concerned to fix all non-functional street lights within 24 hours of detection/complaint thereof.   Instructions to fix responsibility of the official concerned in case of rectification not happening within a week were also issued.  Shri Saxena highlighted the need to ensure illumination under flyovers, in parks and under overgrown trees and instructed officials to address them at the earliest. 

With regards to the issue of fast track court for woman safety, when informed that 35% of the 22 additional posts of Judges sanctioned for as many additional courts to deal with rape and POCSO cases were yet to be filled, the LG asked Secretary, Law to try and get them filled at the earliest in coordination with Hon’ble High Court.  Similar directions were issued with regards to the filling up of 192 posts of ancillary staff for these 22 additional Courts, that had been pending since long.  

Ruing the fact that investigation in only 55% of the cases were being completed within the stipulated 120 days period, the LG informed that he had already issued instructions to the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) to expedite disposal of cases and directed police officials to strictly enforce compliance.  

With regards to the issue of ensuring of last mile connectivity, specially from Metro stations, the LG while expressing satisfaction over the proposed scheme of 1000 e-cabs/autos driven exclusively by woman being put in place, directed officials to ensure their appropriate branding so that they could not only be identified easily across the city, but also added to the visual landscape of Delhi.  

Those presents included the Chairpersons DCW and DCPCR, Chief Secretary, Chairman NDMC, Divisional Commissioner, Commissioner MCD, Commissioner Transport, Spl. Commissioners of Police, Secretary Law and Home Secretary apart from other officers of Departments concerned.
