A recent survey conducted by Navteq, the leading global provider of navigation enabled maps and TNS Market Research, once again came up with similar findings that were made by several other researchers. Meanwhile, the study says that Mumbai is a better city than Delhi in comparison to safety of women.
The survey was carried out at the four metro cities of the country - Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Kolkata. Following the responses from 760 women who took part in the survey, it was concluded that Delhi was the most unsafe city while Mumbai the safest.
