He said the Global Positioning System (GPS) in all public transport was a must and a time line should be drawn to ensure the same.

Installation of GPS in all modes of public transport is mandatory in the national capital.

The directions were issued on Monday at a meeting of the Task Force on Women Safety, chaired by the Baijal.

The governor said all the stake holders should devise mechanisms for analysing the causes of acquittal in sexual assault cases, the L-G office said in a statement.

"The governor directed to formulate a procedure with active participation of all stakeholders for a coordinated approach to weed out the menace of illegal storage and sale of acid," the statement said.

Baijal emphasised that all stakeholders must adopt a focused and coordinated strategy to make Delhi a safe city for women, it added.
