Is Noida safe for girls and working women?
After staying here in Noida & Greater Noida for a decade, I can tell you one thing: Being safe depends on how careful you are. Delhi NCR and specially Noida is a place with huge population, conservative society and an unfavourable sex ratio for men. Acts of aggression towards women still happen (no matter how bad we all feel about it.).
Noida is popularly known as the city of IT professionals, but given the number of girls/women professionals living in rentals there, it might as well be known as a top city for women professionals. But while the city was very nice to the IT professionals, women don’t find it as easy.
We at Oh My Place, India’s leading name in the girls or female friendly stays, are here to help you to find some of the best female friendly rentals in Noida & Greater Noida.
Greater Noida is not that safe as some areas are still under development. You are mostly safe in developed area near Pari Chowk but going in outskirts after 6 PM is not that safe. I will enumerate a few measures that I feel all women should adopt to stay safe in an otherwise a developed city that is Noida & Greater Noida.
- If taking a cab, let the driver know that others know which cab you are in.
- Do not take unknown roads. Being stuck in traffic is better than being lost in a nice road but with no cars.
- If possible carry a taser or pepper spray for out of control situations.
