Festivals and mass gatherings in India are the part of our tradition which has not yet received due attention for ensuring crowd safety. The lack of adequate safety regulation and implementing the management measures have consistently failed resulting in crowd disasters. The Centre for Safety and Crowd Risk Research (CSCR2) was established in recognition of the numbers of deaths and injuries occurring in India as a result of crowd disasters and disasters occurred at religious mass gatherings. The CSCR2 undertake consultancy projects, tailor made training programs, and studies on national, regional and local mass gatherings risk potentials. The Centre is one of its kinds in India, conducting organized research and development in fire cracker safety, festival safety, crowd safety, event safety and spectator safety.


Ensure disaster free festivals and public gatherings

Mission of CSCR2:

  • Conduct innovative research and develop means and measures for enhancing the safety at mass gatherings including festival sites
  • Develop educational tools for crowd management
  • Act as a resource Centre for crowd management strategies
