Available for both Android and iOS platforms, Bipad Sathi is a free app that has several useful features for Bidhanaggar residents, including an option to request nearby help, conduct live GPS-enabled tracking and report crimes. An SOS option, when activated through pressing the volume button thrice, will notify both the local police station {they will send a GPS-enabled vehicle with police to help} and up to five pre-selected contacts of one’s choices.

Anything Else?
