All the comments here seem extremely negative and targeted.

I've lived in Hyderabad for ~2 years now and the areas I've been to (the entirety of Cyberabad, Jubilee Hills, Banjara Hills, etc) are extremely safe and I've walked on these roads even at 3AM with no worry. Women can also take Uber alone post midnight without fear..

Hyderabad is among the worst places to live in India. Most of the Tuktuk drivers in Hyderabad will loot the outsiders and will offer them to gangster travel agents. These drivers will overcharge you and will take very long trips.
Hyderabad is dangerous to walk at night. The roads are filled with criminals and mobsters and extortionists, rapists and murderers roam the Hyderabad streets at night.
Hyderabad is also filled with the Peaceful Community members and it has one of the highest percentages in the country.
The only positive thing about Hyderabad is its food at cheap price, especially the Biryani.

All the software companies have zero work-life balance. Non-IT background "yes men" people are trained to work as submissive self-marketing slaves for money for the First World Countries. All the software companies are indeed the "Dark Satanic Mills" of the modern era. I speak very honestly and frankly.
Anupriya on Dec 22, 2021:
Hyderabad is a dangerous place and notorious criminals roam the streets at night. Murder, assaults, mugging, extortion are very common in Hyderabad. All the software employees in Hyderabad are useless, unskilled and subjugate sincere people in industries. Hyderabad is among the worst places to live in India.
Himanshu on Dec 20, 2021:
Hyderabad has plenty of crime happening such as murder and chain snatching

The airport security check staff in India are the worst and the most rowdy mannered in the world for innocent travellers. The Indian government places hoodlums, goons as airport security check staff for domestic flights passengers in India.
Krupesh on Oct 16, 2021:
Hyderabad is not a safe place. The increasing population is not a good sign of development.
Tej on Sep 01, 2021:
Witnessed an attack very recently.
An autorickshaw tried to attack us, we were inside the car.
As we tried to flee, he followed us at high speeds and smacked his vehicle into our car several times from behind in heavy traffic and tried to stop the car.
How could someone dare to stop some other vehicle in the middle of busy highway to attack??
We took the expressway and finally escaped the situation.
Unfortunately CCTVs aren't there. Bad security and the cops asked for bribe to deal.
The crime index is far away from facts, it should be above 60%
Tej on Sep 01, 2021:
Definitely very unsafe city at night.
The old city, the green parts in the city and even the nearest outskirts are a den of prostitution, violent crimimals, rapists.
No good security systems, CCTVs are rare even on the main highways.
Corruption and bribery are at peaks.
No justice without money.

People blindly believe in propaganda these days. All the propaganda and biased incorrect portrayal of India is done by the national and international media. The ground reality is different. India is still a very peaceful country. There is absolutely no reason to panic.
Well, such comments as the ones below are found in other pages too. But they are mostly propaganda/fabricated stories of both the International media and the local Indian media. Never trust any news channel.

There is a growing trend among Hindus nowadays. The Hindutva militants earn their bread and love to permanently settle in Christian and Muslim countries. But these same Hindutva militants spew hatred and bitterly despise all the Christians and Muslims living in India. In sites such as Times of India, Quora, YouTube, Twitter, FaceBook you will find extreme hate speeches from the Hindus and Jews, and both of them they bitterly hate Muslims and Christians. For example, the official stats reveal that the Christian percentage in India is only 2%. And yet you will hear racial slurs against Christians as "Rice bag community". Some of the Hindutva militants want innocent Christians to be hanged. There is written evidence for these statements. Places such as Hyderabad, Bangalore, Gujarat, Mumbai, Pune, Chennai, Kolkata, Indore, Vizag and North India are filled with Hindutva militants.
Raghav on Feb 25, 2021:
It is sad to know that all these things mentioning by other people here are happening in Hyderabad. But Hyderabad has plenty of violent crime.
Anonymous on Feb 24, 2021:
India can be proud of the IT cell. IT cell is India's only contribution to the software industry in the world. Hyderabad, Pune, Bangalore, Gurgaon, Kolkata and Chennai are filled with Hindutva militants that vehemently hate the Muslims and Christians. The IT cell spreads news and comments that innocent Christians and Muslims should be hanged. All the software companies in India are filled with Hindutva militants to be frank. The Hindutva militant IT cell is found throughout the internet.
Naveed Sheriff on Sep 18, 2020:
Hyderabad is safer than chennai because chennai roads , crime rates and harassment are highly available in my opinion hyderabad is safe place to live
Rathnakar on Aug 02, 2020:
Andhra Pradesh and Telangana are very popular for fake experience certificates. It is a very lucrative business here. Plenty of Telugu people produce fake experience certificates and get into software companies.

With these fake work-experience certificates, plenty of Telugu people eventually migrate to United States of America and permanently settle in USA. Each fake experience certificate for a Telugu person will cost atleast Rs. 40000. It is no wonder that many software companies exist in cities with large Telugu population such as Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai.

I am working in a startup in Hyderabad and its employees are keen on using all the data and comments in this website. It is very useful for our ongoing statistical modelling project for an American client.
We will definitely use Numbeo API for our project. Big Thanks to Numbeo for giving discounts to startups. We are located near Jubilee Hills area of Hyderabad. We will also subscribe to the Numbeo newsletter.
Reshma on Jun 22, 2020:
Agreed on the unsafe nature of Hyderabad, but I don't think comparison with Bangalore makes any sense. In my opinion, both Hyderabad and Bangalore are highly unsafe places, filled with crime.
Both Hyderabad and Bangalore deserve a crime index of above 50.
Hyderabad and Bangalore are worst cities for women safety in South India. Pickpocketing, robbery including burglary, chain snatching and problems from transgender beggar gangsters are equally worst in both Hyderabad and Bangalore.
Vaishnavi on Jun 22, 2020:
Hyderabad is highly unsafe and notorious. Crimes such as molestation of women, pickpocketing, theft, chain snatching and extortion are very high in Hyderabad.
Being a woman, I felt a lot safer in Bangalore and Coimbatore, compared to Hyderabad. As #Hameed has rightly said, Hyderabad crime index should be more than 50. The present numbers shown in this page are very less.
Except for Hyderabad, Telangana is among the most backward states in India. Hyderabad has plenty more slums than Bangalore. Bangalore is much more cleaner and greener than Hyderabad. As a woman walking alone in Hyderabad, I never felt safe especially after 6 PM.
Hameed on Jun 21, 2020:
Regarding crime, Hyderabad is much worse than Bangalore. The information is sugar-coated in this page. Hyderabad crime index should also be greater than 50.
Robbery and violent crime are very high in Hyderabad.
Vijay Roy M on Jun 18, 2020:
Crime Rate in Telangana State impressive comparing with all other states.

I feel proud to be living safely in cyberabad limits.

Miyapur police also doing good. But I request to take (Janapriya apartments phase 1) in miyapur under control of police ONLY. Because so many mobs gangs take law and order in to there hands. These mobs and gangs are with families living in sane locality. This is not coming to notice of Miyapur police officials.

To be frank this is a society with rigid and corrupt dark society. Women involve in disputes. There is no respect for law. Any case is judges by this society with out approaching police and courts.


I also request a Efficient state intelligence officer to appoint who can monitor these area continuously living inbetween them and save true information. ----So that gangs mobs works can disclose and especially in advance there is a peace in our locality. This will also help Miyapur Police officials

Thank you in advance for reading my comments.

I appreciate your prompt action by confidentially only.
