India is the country with a lot of diversity and a lot of tradition. The country is famous for its culture and festivals. But these days, all we read in a newspaper is about some terrorist attack, or some rape case. This makes us insecure about the place where we live in. By studying the past record of the cities, we have derived a list of the top 10 safest cities in the country. The ASICS, which stands for the Annual Survey of India’s City Systems, judges the cities in India on the criteria of crime and safety along with cleanliness, pollution, clean water, bureaucracy, etc. Then the ASICS produced a list of ranks for the cities. This list along with other information by other researches, we made the following list.
The capital of the country is not that safe as it should be and holds the tenth position on the list. The capital of India is very populous and given the population that big, the crimes are more likely to occur. Political fights and arguments are the main difference between a capital city and others. All sorts of political riots and a lot of terrorist attacks are faced by the city in the past days.
