No one has the right to beat you, torture you physically or mentally, or force use on you in any way. No matter what your relationship is with this person.
Violence against you is not your fault. Violence is not anyone’s right. Do not hesitate; do not be afraid to call for help.
Call 103 – 24 hour helpline for crime against children, women and senior citizens in Mumbai and the police will be there immediately to take action. It is up to you to make that call.
Security of Residential Area –
Hire qualified / experienced chowkidars only
Check the antecedents / credentials of chowkidars and domestic servants before hiring them. Insist on references from their previous employers. Furnish their full particulars to your police station in the format suggested by them
Always employ different chowkidars for day and night duties
Secretaries of Societies are advised to brief all the security men / chowkidars / lift men about various aspects of security. Some of these are:
To make an enquiry if a taxi or auto-rickshaw is seen parked inside the compound or outside the building for a long time.
To inform the police in case they find any vehicle parked inside the building (if ownership is not known) for a long time.
Secretaries of societies are advised to brief all residents on the following:
Whenever they employ a new servant, the local police station should be informed. His or her photographs, fingerprints and other details should be obtained and submitted to local police station.
They should be advised to install a door with iron bars inside the flat, superior quality night latches and special eye lens on the main door. Ideally, interaction with strangers and vendors should be through the grilled door. High wattage light source with pilfer proof cover outside the main door should be installed.
They should not keep huge amounts of cash, valuable ornaments etc., in the house.
They should avoid discussing money transactions and other important family matters in the presence of servants/ outsiders.
They should not humiliate servants on petty matters. Nor should they penalize them for small damages.
It is important to inform the police about any suspicious happening or unclaimed object found in suspicious circumstances. Extend full cooperation to the police.
A special register should be maintained in every society and kept in the custody of the chowkidar or in the society's office. Whenever Police officers visit the area, they should get an entry in such registers.
Ensuring safety of your home
A video-door-bell and surveillance cameras could be of added advantage.
ACCEPTING COURIER PACKAGES:-
If a visitor has any package to deliver, please check the authenticity of the courier. Preferably, an adult member from the household should confirm this aspect before permitting the delivery man inside the house. Children, aged-persons, & servants should be briefed suitably in this regard.

Obtain a photograph, permanent residential address, and at least two references before employing a new servant. Contact the referee on phone/ mail and checkup the details given by the prospective servant before employing him.
