Be careful when accessing financial services online. Look out for emails or phone calls that ask you to share your personal information. Never do these - no matter how convincing the email; or how trustworthy or authoritative the voice on the other end sounds. #DigitalIndia #InternetSafety

Sustainable Transport - Shimla Mall Road

Mon, 02/05/2022 - 17:24

Commercial areas often get crowded and congested due to the high footfall and vehicular movement. A good solution is pedestrianisation. The Mall Road in Shimla is a good example of a successful pedestrian-oriented commercial street and social lifeline. It is a pedestrian paradise and a shopper's dream to walk on the clean, vehicle-free street (except for emergency vehicles). The addition of trees and seating could further enhance the current streetscape. How would you want to change the commercial streets in your city? Comment below. Picture credit: ITDP
