Pukar


Pukar – an app that instantly connects you to your loved ones and the local police in case of an emergency. Once installed, a user in an emergency situation like – eve teasing, stalking, unwanted sexual advances, kidnapping, theft, fire, road accidents etc. presses SOS button on this app, sending out SOS alert messages with his/her GPS location to local police (in select cities) and their pre-chosen emergency contacts at regular intervals. This instantly displays the emergency alert at the police control room on a city map. Currently, Kota, Alwar, Udaipur & Nainital police have partnered with this app to receive emergency alerts and immediately execute rescue operation via nearest police station and police vans.

Pukar has other brilliant features too, once SOS is pressed:
- Emergency SMS sent to 5 contacts
- Phone becomes silent
- Display brightness is reduced
