Security and Safety of Senior Citizens - Mumbai Police shows the way

Hamari Suraksha claimed to be "The first ever security portal for
every Indian" has partnered with the government agencies, local
police, citizens and business houses to ensure Mumbai is safe and
peaceful for Senior citizens. Hamari Suraksha has launched a website
to register senior citizens, domestic help workers such as servant,
driver, cook, health care providers including doctors and nearest
• Senior Citizen Registration
Registration of Senior Citizens and their domestic help worker,
Servant, driver, cook, cleaner, milk man and others
• Volunteer Registration, the site will register volunteers who will
provide services to the senior citizens:
Volunteer Individuals and Volunteer Doctors and other healthcare providers
• Senior Citizen's Tenant Registration, when you rent your house or
apartment, must register your tenant
• No more form filling, no more going to the police station. You can
register right from your home if you have access to computer hooked up
to the internet or go to nearest internet center, your office or from
your friends place. You can also call police help line by dialing 1090
to register over the phone.
• Senior citizen can upload their picture; provide necessary emergency
contact information of your family members, your doctor, nearest
hospital and much more.
Recently nearly 170 Mumbai Police officials were specially trained to
handle senior citizens problems. They were told:
• How to use the web site
• Training on registration of Senior Citizens
• How to handle calls with Senior Citizens and providing them
necessary assistance in using the web-site
• How to resolve difficult queries
• How to get support from "HamariSuraksha team" and Elder-Line
In Hyderabad, Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) has
started a Senior Citizens Helpline (Phone: 1253). Aasara as it is
called has been offering many of the above services for nearly three
years. Highly appreciated for the prompt and quality service, Aasara
has become synonymous with Senior Citizens Welfare. Let us hope Hamari
Suraksha also becomes useful and indispensable in times to come.
