Born and living in Delhi my entire life.

Delhi is a great place to be with lots of things happening, it is planned and has nice places, connectivity, economy, etc. But we should not be hypocrites and portray that it is some kind of safe city. It is known as the rape capital of India, if not the world for a reason. Very unsafe for women in general.

Crime levels are quite high and corruption is a major issue here. While it is unlikely you will get attacked on your skin color, but you can get attacked for being a minority, particularly Muslim, thanks to the rise of Hindu extremists. All it takes is a little incident that you may not even feel is a big deal.

I hope we can make Delhi a safe city. US and China and Japan all have big cities that had crime problems but they were able to solve it. I hope India can do it too.

Delhi is also Known as Crime Capital Of India. There is no safety at all in Delhi, Better Never visit this city . Try to visit other cities like- Mumbai , Kolkata , Bangalore etc. These cities are safer than Delhi.
Delhi Is the worst city in India .

Delhi has three major problem, traffic , pollution and crime. If all the crime is reported like in west, no one would ever go there. So much of alcohol and drugs can be seen. I traveled with my family through out India and Delhi is really bad on safety.

I'm not from Delhi but in school, we have to do research on Delhi,
this was an area we have to cover.
It is so sad to see the crime rate and especially what some of them are for.
I really do hope that they fix his issue or at least try.
Hope everyone is doing ok over there.
