Amid growing number of crimes against women, a Women Safety application has been developed by students and faculty of ITM University, Gurgaon which has been recently selected for the National Campaign ‘Beti Bachao-Beti Padhao’ (Save girl child-Educate girl child).

The University’s app was selected recently during the two-day event held in Panipat by the Haryana Government to create awareness about the campaign. The Android-based application ‘Be Safe Girls’ has been developed by Ms Sujata, Asst Professor, Ms Sakshi, final year student of dept of CSE&IT, ITM University, Gurgaon and development team of the University. The USP of the app, as per the development team, is that it consumes less than 1 MB memory space.

“Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao is a great initiative of the government and it is a moment of pride for us that an application developed by our students has been selected for such an important national campaign. The app will infuse a sense of security among women, making them fearless and more confident. We hope that the efforts of our students will help the campaign become successful,” said Prof B S Panwar, Vice Chancellor, ITM University, Gurgaon.

The app has a button that will appear on the mobile screens upon downloading. In an emergency situation, the girl would be able to inform her family, friends and security officials of the university or authorities concerned through a text message just with the pressing of the button. Upon activation, the app would send the precise location of the device to the people concerned.

Application uses location tracker with the help of any of the available technologies like GPS, 3G, 2G or Wi-Fi. The app would be available to the users once it is operationalized.
