New Delhi: In a bid to beef up security for women in the capital, Delhi Police is all geared up to launch a facility named “track me” in its existing SOS application HIMMAT.


Especially catered for women who have to travel a lot and at odd hours, the “track me” facility will provide the commuters three time slots to select from and and the GPS tracking shall continue for the selected period. The facility also has the provision to change the time slot if the commuter does not reach her destination within the chosen time frame.

The “track me” facility enables the police control room to conveniently locate the person in distress even if her position keeps continuously changing.

The facility which has already been developed and is currently under trial mode has three time slots, “10 minutes”, “15 minutes” and “30 minutes”.

Changes in the facility will be incorporated based on the shortfalls experienced during this phase, which shall continue for at least a month before “track me” is launched, said .

Special Commissioner of Police (Operations) Sundari Nanda said, “the facility aims at ensuring security for women who work in odd shifts and have to commute at odd hours.”

She further said, the registration process for the HIMMAT has been made easier and is available on all mobile OS platforms.

Sports betting has become increasingly popular among the youth in recent times

Sports betting has been around for centuries for the audience to not only watch the sport but to get more deeply involved in the match. It is a fun and often profitable activity for the viewer to win some extra fortune or simply get some extra sweat while watching the game. At first glance, sports betting may look like it's pure luck, but when you indulge deeper into the activity you realize it is more of a calculative and research activity than just pure luck. We must note that yes, luck does play a certain role to some extend but a win is not completely dependent on luck, if you're putting your bets on a certain team you have to make sure to do some research about the players on the team, history of wins and losses of the team and compare the probability of winning and then place bets.

Even though sports betting has existed since the ancient era, it was not until recently that it became increasingly popular among the youth. This happened due to the legalization of the activity and the rise of online sports betting. The technological revolution has expanded the sports betting industry, offering the bettors new markets and ways to bet. The only major difference between online bookmarkers and traditional brick-and-mortar venues of sports betting is that now you can place bets online from your mobile devices, laptops, computers etc.
