Chennai has the tag of being one of the few remaining ‘conservative’ cities in the country. When compared with the people from Mumbai and Delhi, the people of Chennai aren’t all that much influenced by the notions of what is known as the western culture. Dating and partying as a social phenomenon isn’t as popular in Chennai as much as it is in the other metros of India. This isn’t just because of the girls but even the men in Chennai don’t seem to be really interested in the whole weekend partying fad. Probably, this conservative nature has led to a relatively lesser crime rate against women.
One downside of the conservative nature is that the number of crimes reported to the number of crimes that happen is probably far less when compared to the other cities mentioned. This could also have projected a crime rate which is a bit lower due to the number of cases that go unreported.
