    its reasonably safe. But please do follow some basic rules of thumb.

    - Be aware of escape routes for emergencies in the apts. Ask the builder about these before signing up the agreement. Usually the builders are hesitant to share this, negotiate hard.

    - If you work late after 8pm, try to find 2-3 co-workers for an escort when entering and exiting the building.

    - Be alert for pickpockets on lifts, clubhouse and garden area. Make sure you have the local police chowky numbers handy.

    - Goorkhas are difficult to be hired these days, very rare, have alarms and a decent dog at home as the burglars are too cunning these days and have latest equipments.

    - If you are assaulted while in the lift, hit the emergency or alarm button and press as many floor buttons as possible.

    - Have iron main door. the slums will never be able to encroach inside. At the most they might be able to encroach the corridors outside your main door.

    - very important: keep your windows always closed and locked.

    - try to avoid guests. If unavoidable, never let them into the house through any door other than the main entrance.

    - Do not open your door to strangers. If your door has a peep hole, use it to identify your guests. Verify if they are real guests and not dummies. for e.g. ask them when was the last time they met you, whats your favorite dish that they know etc.

    - Do not give your name or number to strangers.If you have your name plaqued infront of the house, use only initials. use some nicknames.

    - Keep your valuables out of sight. Arrange your room so that high-risk items such as stereos, televisions and cameras are not visible in the living room when the door is open.

    wish you a safe and happy home in PS !

      Just to make it clear... these are not rules to be followed only in PS. Its a reasonably safe area with not too many slums around. But these basic guidelines ensure your safety in a much better way.

      PS is as safe as any area in Pune can be in these days..

            I hope the reply is more on sarcastic lines OR are specific for PS area…
            I find some of the points mentioned to be slightly on the extreme side.

            Ø work late after 8pm: Gosh… 8 PM is late..!!!! Its not something like 11:00 PM. If I need escorts after 8 PM man the area is bad.

            Ø Be alert for pickpockets on lifts, clubhouse and garden area: Are these areas not inside the premises… and Pick-pocketing usually happens in crowded areas.. Do you mean Mugging over here…

            Ø Have iron main door. the slums will never be able to encroach inside.: What???? Again I hope u mean antisocial elements here… OR is there a huge tussle between the slums and the buildings that the slum ppl will come and try n breakdown your doors..

            Ø try to avoid guests.: My house right… not a hospoital…!!!! I can understand strangers should never be allowed.. what is so wrong with guests.

            Ø Do not give your name or number to strangers.If you have your name plaqued infront of the house, use only initials. use some nicknames: Why should this be important?

            Cheers.

              thats cool. i will suggest a few more.

              - do electric fencing of doors and windows, put a signboard as well to caution people
              - visit nearest police chowky every month to get updates of the security situation in the area. Get a copy of the pictures of suspects and 'most wanted' type guys. Stick these pictures inside of the entrance-door so you can compare the faces quickly after you see them via peep-hole
              - always have someone at home awake during the nights, take turns and sleep during the day
              - if there are no dogs at home, buy a alarm which can generate barking sounds, set it for every 30min in full volume.
              - never talk to neighbours or let them inside
              - get licensed arms and ammunition, keep it handy whenever you open the entrance door
