Spotted Pink Police Booths in Lucknow? Here's what they stand for!

These booths will be secured with CCTV cameras and will be connected to the 1090 Women Powerline.

If you're living in Lucknow, you must have come across pink building like structures at certain points throughout the city. These establishments are actually women-friendly police booths, set up by the UP police authorities for the women in Lucknow. Locations like 1090 Crossing in Gomti Nagar, Loreto Convent, Lohia Park Crossing, Awadh Crossing in Alambagh, amidst other places, have been marked for this project.

What's Happening?

These two-storeyed pink police booths will be exclusively for the women of the city and they'll all be administered 24x7 by female police officers. To make it all better and much more efficient, these booths will be secured with CCTV cameras and will be connected to the 1090 Women Powerline for grievance redressals. This is all a part of the 'Safe City' project, undertaken as a part of the 'Smart City' banner.

Keeping the issue of carbon footprints in mind, the authorities have also installed solar panels on top of these structures so these booths will be powered by solar light. In the coming times, these kiosks will be constructed all over the state but as of now, this initiative will commence in Lucknow with 100 booths at the initial stage.

Knock Knock

So far, an official date for the inauguration of these pink booths hasn't been revealed but it is being assumed by us, that they will be given a go-ahead signal this year on Independence day. We hope that these kiosks will lessen the anxiety amidst women to report their problems and it is truly one of the many steps towards women empowerment and safety in Lucknow.
