Bangalore is the “safest city” in terms of crime, according to NCRB data.

Kolkata tops the NCRB ranking for the second year in a row, followed by Pune and Hyderabad.

According to the most recent National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) report, Kolkata has once again topped the list of cities with the fewest cognisable offences per lakh population, making the metropolis the safest city in India in 2022. Based on instances submitted to the Centre by the state government and recorded, the most recent NCRB data shows that Kolkata had 86.5 cases of cognisable offences per lakh inhabitants, Pune (Maharashtra) had 280.7, and Hyderabad (Telangana) had 299.2.

Cases filed under SLL (Special and Local Laws) and sections of the Indian Penal Code are among the crimes that are considered cognisable. The crime rate has decreased as well. Kolkata recorded 103.4 incidents of cognisable crimes per lakh residents in 2021. It was 86.5 this year, a decrease of more than 16%. Less crime was reported in Pune and Hyderabad last year, with 256.8 and 259.9 incidences per lakh population, respectively. After evaluating the city against 18 others with a population of more than two million, the rankings were determined. Currently, the Kolkata Police is in charge of 83 police stations. Nine of the 83 are police stations run by women, and the other two are STF and cybercrime police stations. At least nine new police stations are being established in Bhangar by Kolkata Police. “It is a testament to the dedication of all law enforcement officers and it gives police officers more confidence as they work around the clock to make sure the city sleeps safely,” a senior police official stated.

The NCRB report “Crime in India 2022” is based on information gathered from government agencies, 36 states, and Union Territories. This year, the report has been postponed by a minimum of five months. Every year, it is often made public by July or August.

“I think there is a decrease in crime in any nation where democratic and leftist movements are growing. Knowing that Kolkata is the safest city according to NCRB data and at the top of the list is a positive thing. But I don’t think the government or law enforcement have much of a part in it. According to Ranjit Sur of the Association for the Protection of Democratic Rights (APDR), conscious people oppose organised crime.
