Safest regions in India
The research also discusses the Indian cities with the highest incidence of theft. Delhi-NCR is followed by Bengaluru at 9 percent and Chennai at 5 percent in terms of vehicle theft instances across the nation. In the meantime, Hyderabad, Mumbai, and Kolkata have emerged as the cities with the lowest vehicle theft rates in the nation.
Most popular automobile colour
In terms of automobile colour, white vehicles are more susceptible to theft. The rationale behind this is that white automobiles are very easy to blend into traffic. In addition, it is simpler to paint white automobiles a different colour.
Multiple factors contribute to Delhi-status NCR’s as the vehicle theft capital of India. Still, the shortage of parking space in buildings and colonies, resulting in automobiles being parked on the highways, is one of the most relevant issues.
