The safety helpline number is available under the safety toolkit banner on the Uber app.
"Rider needs to contact Uber to report a non-emergency safety incident and taps the shield icon. Secondly, riders will need to tap the safety helpline icon and then swipe to speak to an Uber representative," he said.
Replying to a question, Bhushan said, "we keep regularly taking feedback from our riders and driver partners and on the basis of this feedback and data we have gathered, we formulate roadmap and safety features".
Chandigarh is one of the biggest markets in India for the company, he said, adding "that is why we were happy to start it from here. We will extend it to other cities subsequently".
The safety helpline support number is not a replacement for "100" but it is a helpful way to get urgent support, he clarified.
"In case of an emergency, Uber encourages riders to use the SOS button or the national emergency line (100) in the event of a safety-related incident, Bhushan added.
